"Coming Home For Christmas" Movie review and giveaway

Our family just watched a new Family Christmas Movie last night:

"Coming Home For Christmas"
While not an "Inspirational" or "Christian-themed" movie, it was a pleasant watch, with nothing objectionable for our 6 year old (Although there were some tensions that mostly flew over his head), requiring us fast forward or tell him not to watch. Always a point in any movie's favor! :) 

About "Coming Home for Christmas"~ When their parents separate, two sisters who haven't spoken in over 5 years reunite in order to try to bring them back together again. The "Brainstorm" idea is to try to recreate their last Christmas together (The last time they remembered their mother being happy). The only problem is that someone else lives in their old house~ 



When the movie starts out everything is just bad, bad, bad... fights, separation, unhappy family tensions. As my oldest pointed out... "there has to be some conflict to resolve...." It just so happens that it *mostly* all shows up at the beginning of the movie! Thankfully the rest of the movie is engaged in making things right. There are some corny moments, some sweet moments, and a lot of little humorous quips. Many of them are visual, so you can't be texting or on facebook if you want to catch them all. ;)

The main point to the movie is that family is important, friends are important, relationships are important, with a Christmas setting to back it up.

Cast: George Canyon (Christmas Miracle, Dawn Rider, Man of Steel), Aaron Pritchett, Britt McKillip (Dead Like Me), Carly McKillip (Hot Rod)

  7. We like the Christmas Box. It's a very good family movie that talks about the first real gift of Christmas. The book is also good.
