My favorite family Christmas movie! It's hard to find a Christmas movie which isn't themed around romance, so this one is a great find. ...It's a gem...sweet story, great veteran cast, lots of fun! Ernest Borgnine puts his heart into the story. A happy, feel-good movie. Love it!
This is a wonderful Family Christmas move! This is a movie you have to see. Bert takes his grandaughter that he did not know he had into his home while his daughter was in the hospital. Bert and becca have a lot of fun together and Becca is a wonderful singer. This was a fun movie to watch, I loved Ernest Borgnine and Juliette goglia in this movie. They both were great in this movie.
A Hallmark original movie, so you know it is going to be slathered in about 20 feet of sentimentality. This one does not "disappoint." That said, Ernest Borgnine is awesome as the grandfather trying to win his granddaugher's affection. I also think he is playing younger than he really is (he is 90, while his character is probably about 70), which I find amusing. The movie is moderatly entertaining in itself, but only watch this to see Borgnine.
Another surprisingly good Hallmark Original Christmas movie. Great cast, good story, better editing. Ernest Borgnine's Golden Globe nominated performance as Bert is his best performance in probably more than 20 years... even if you include his role as Dominic in Airwolf.
