Bowled over by its brilliance. Every scene gobsmackingly spot on. Potter is one of cinema's great unknown villains. Donna Reed deserved to be as big a name as her male opposite, James Stewart. I felt for the characters. Capra's skill as well as anyone else's. It's also considered a great film, so it can only improve with each viewing. Aces.

Some claim it is overly sentimental but nevertheless important part of American experience. Like an acted out parable of wisdom.

One of my favorites: spiritual, profound, original, positive, high sense of art. It focuses on the middle class, the family and the importance of each person in society. Besides, it shows how to celebrate christmas in the best way possible: with charity, joy and spiritual conversion. Its final scene would be my best ending choice

Should be required viewing for anyone. Incredibly uplifting film.

This is definitely my favourite movie of all time! The story is so beautiful and so well acted, it's impossible not to feel touched by its powerful massage! It represents a type of movie Hollywood simply doesn't do anymore, both because it wouldn't feel right and because there's no need: it's been done and it's been done perfectly.

One of my favorite movies of all time. The scene where he comes home knowing he's about to lose it all and then loses it on his family. A scene most of us can relate to. The family stuck together and supported a truly genuine man.

inspiring and heartwarning - Frank Capra has yet again delivered his signature style of filmaking that celebrates and fervently reminds of life's simple moral values without the cloying sentimentality of Hollywood cliches.

The main character is really kind of annoying - especially when he refuses endlessly to believe that Clarence is an angel. It needs to trim half an hour off. But the story itself is good - just the execution is a bit dragged out.

Watched this as a child and moved me to tears. Always has the same heart warming effect ...

I had the great pleasure of seeing this in the theater last year. The audience was comprised of people age 6-89! Throughout the entire film, the audience responded with laughter, tears - complete attention. The audience clapped at the end. This is truly a timeless masterpiece for all ages and all demographics to enjoy.

Featuring an outstanding performance by James Stewart, and a great moral message, It's a Wonderful Life is an absolutely heartwarming and timeless film. Not only possibly the greatest Christmas movie ever made, but one of the greatest movies ever made.

I feel like Phoebe from that episode of friends: It just kept getting worse and worse, it should have been called, "It's a sucky life and just when you think it can't suck any more it does."
The ending was cutsie but overall it was pretty boring. George left his dreams to work for a shitty job at a shitty town. I know it was to help the people but he could be selfless while travelling the world.
