The film dips into syrup as it draws to a close, but even that we can forgive for its genuine warm hearted mood

It's a little like holiday leftovers--still warm and filling but not as fresh or tasty as the first Christmas Day meal.

Audience Reviews for Thomas Kinkade's Christmas Cottage

.Film 17 is The Movie Christmas Cottage, which is based on the true story of the artist Thomas Kinkade. Coming home for Christmas Thomas and his Brother find that their Mom is about to lose her home, so they get Jobs in the community. The best acting is done by Peter O'Toole who plays an ageing and dieing artist . His acting is over the top. This is a tear jerker I warn you, cuddle up with your honey and enjoy this one. Has some comical lines and parts. Its worth 4 1/2 stars.

A cheap Christmas melodrama that is rarely genuinely touching, it has some nice performances but little else to offer besides Padalecki's striking good looks.
