Audience Reviews for Papa's Angels

I have been trying to get a DVD of Papa's Angels for two years. I can't imagine why it has disappeared from the Christmas movie scene. It was one of the most authentic movies I've ever seen. ...Even the music was a real early American sound. And Bakula's acting, as well as all the other actors', was absolutely outstanding. The old-timey superstitions were so typical of the kind of back-country lore we've just about lost from our repertoire. If I could find even some used DVDs, I'd gladly buy two or three of them, in order to give them to people I know with discriminating taste.

What a sappy film. A family oriented drama, overacted and poorly directed. The acting is barely adequate. Not at all convincing, it plays like a bad Lifetime channel movie, not that their is a good Lifetime movie... Fake twangy accents abound. it just isn't very good.
