LUV Ed Burns!!!
What a great, simple, holiday classic! Edward Burns is a master at the indy storytelling of themes that we take for granted in our society, our families and our friends! He also demonstrates that THE STORY is the most important by keeping his films on a small budget that inspires film students, filmmakers and people who just love films that big ideas does not always mean big budgets! Keep your Michael Bay bangs & crashes...I'll take an Edward Burns film from the core....any day!
Best Film I've Seen This Year
Written, produced, directed and acted by Ed Burns - give this guy an award. If you have a crazy family this movie has bits and pieces of the relationships you probably have with those close but distant members. Great movie. Great acting. Probably will become a Christmas Classic.
Ed knows what he is doing when it comes to showing how Irish Catholic families interact. His character is one you empathize with because you know the role he plays in this family so well, and the rest of the characters are so well casted that you feel their emotional struggles too. McGlone was great to see again as well as Connie Britton. Well done Ed, keep making more like this one.
