ANGELS SING feels like your basic made-for-TV Christmas movie, only given an upgrade with an all-star cast; it's formulaic and a little hokey, but somehow you don't really mind. Although it's sappy, the emotional connections are believable and the characters are likable. And kids and parents alike will enjoy the music, which plays a central role in the film. From the silly made-up lyrics in Kris Kristofferson's "12 Days of Christmas" to the wistful duets with Lyle Lovett, all the music is a far cry from the usual Christmas fare.

The clichéd plot keeps it from competing with the holiday classics, but Angels Sing is definitely a movie you could watch again next Christmas, if only to hear the different takes on Christmas carols.
