A Christmas Eve Miracle Reviews

    Typical holiday fare. I've seen Olivia d'Abo on TV on occasion and she can be a great actress when she wants to. This wasn't a good use of her talents. In this movie, she plays a mother juggling between her family and her career. Though she manages well, its hard work and she is wracked with exhaustion. And though she loves her family, she's very good and really happy with her job. One day she makes a wish of what life would be like without her family - yep, "It's A Wonderful Life" territory. The moral of the story is pretty obvious and good, but the acting is weak. It could have been given a better run-through.

    This might be the worst movie ever made.

    Nice Christmas movie with an emphasis on the importance of families and children during the holidays and not on work

    Found myself concentrating more on the appalling camera man than the actually movie, Up and down more than the cast. I watched 20 mins and I'll never get those 20 mins back, waste of my leisure time. Pick another movie to watch this is in the minuses.

    If there is a word that means retarded but is like, four steps more retarded than retarded, than that word would describe this absolutely disgusting, horrifyingly disturbing movie. Like, it is literally disturbing. You either want to puke or die of shock while watching these people pretend like they're actors. Not to mention that the person who designed this cover needs to be fired or thrown in prison. Like, what the actual. DO NOT BE MISLEAD. There is no smiling baby or flailing toddler in this disgusting holiday video. There is a bratty fake blonde woman who is creepier than a drunk kidnapper on cocaine, a really horrifically cheerful man who is supposedly related to these people, a somehow extremely not fake blonde daughter who is unconventionally and almost inconceivably nice to her pathetic, know-it-all disgusting brother who wears glasses to make himself look smart and idiotic. They have a dog, apparently, because the dog is the flippin narrator, but by the end of the movie, you don't remember what it looks like or if it even exists. Don't get me started on the fact that the whole thing is an actual lie. The first thirty minutes can be skipped because it's basically just a bunch of strangers drunk and acting like they want to spend time together. If you like really nice, happy movies where people genuinely like each other and you love to endure poorly shot footage of blurry bald men and creepy people fake laughing than this is the movie for you. But I digress. Can I just point out that this script is a piece of actual garbage. The child and his mother go out to frolic in the snow for no apparent reason, and then all of a sudden the kid gets his ankle sprained and then four hours later he's perfectly fine. Oh and the mother acts all upset even though she's not, and touches his leg to see if anything is even real. Okay, so there's this weirdo Santa that isn't actually Santa but everyone thinks he is. He literally destroys the fake blonde lady's life and then smiles about it. He smiles about it. WHO DOES THAT. Well, he did. And then he dies in the end, or maybe he doesn't. We just don't know. But before he dies, he builds this strange pyramid of glowing 3D packages that aren't even real but everyone thinks they are. And then this kid and this other kid are playing football all of a sudden, and the mother that isn't really his mother appears out of legitimately nowhere and tells this five year old that she's his real mother and that is whole life is an actual lie. Then she runs away and then the older kid just keeps smiling. And then all of a sudden the entire cast of the movie starts flailing across the snow to meet the mother that they've been searching for and the girl who is supposed to be this fake blonde woman's daughter is like, "We thought we lost you forever", but it's been like, two minutes. I mean, this is a good movie and everything. Not really anything bad to say about it. The plot was really good, because nothing actually happened, and the actors were fantastic because they were really good at acting stupid and like their brains were all over the floor. I think this movie was awesome, it just could have used a bit more, everything. Like, literally everything was missing from this movie, but it was still really good. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a cute little retarded show for the whole family, because you will finally be able to look around your own disgusting, pathetic family and say, "Gee, I love you guys. At least you're not all as stupid as these people." But then you'll get to the end and wonder why the family in the movie left their dog at home, and it's probably because it was actually not a dog because dogs don't even talk so just shut up and don't watch this movie because it sucks. Merry Christmas!

    I can't say that I enjoyed this movie. From the very first sentence I knew that this christmas movie wasn't going to be one that I would want to see again. But despite it not being that good, there was still something that made me want to see how it would end.

    I wonder why the cover picture of the movie doesn't correspond to the movie. They have 3 kids on the picture and only 2 in the movie.
