Christmas in the smokies

Honestly one of the worst Christmas movies I’ve ever watched with my 2 God-given eyes. The ending was horrible and there was no climax. I thought they were going to give at least a little hope to the movie but it never did. Very disappointed.

Great family movie!

Sweet, well-done movie which takes place in the Smoky Mountains. Themes include Christmas, family, spirituality, hard times, relationships, etc. Lovely story and good acting from the entire cast. Cliche? Sure. . . but I'll take it any day over the alternatives. Just a nice, sweet film that shows some religious themes which is just unheard of these days. I am happy to see it. Would love more just like this. The actors were truly great. ***I am not a prude nor am I 85 years old. But it is hard to find a pleasant movie like this one. It's a keeper.
