GREAT FAMILY MOVIE

I watched this movie from beginning to end... I was captivated by the LOVE AND THE MESSAGE "THAT GOD CARES ABOUT US ALL"... There was another gift from GOD in this movie "FAMILY"... And "THAT STEALING IS WRONG"... Stealing can lead to life of crime... Another thing that I got from this movie was "HOPE"... Sharing the gift of not to just family but strangers and gang members can move a mountain... I pray that many parents allow their children to view this movie and share their what they got out of watching this movie... It is now playing on "NETFLIX"... Please take the time to watch this movie... For it captured my eyes which is the Windows to the soul and the heart... I give this movie a "THUMBS UP" And 5 STARS...!!! GREAT FAMILY MOVIE...!!!

Inappropriately racist

I really hope people aren’t letting their kids watch this? Like drugs and alcohol are scary, but what about the INSANE amounts of prejudice and racial stereotypes that this movie would not exist without? Nah, keep this away from growing minds. Teens who are learning about the realities of the ugliness of racism and how it’s still so common that they make Christmas movies about it can watch this, but if they’ve been raised with any decency they wouldn’t be able to make it halfway through.
