My favorite movie

This is seriously my favorite movie. It is so funny and it has values behind. It's a film for the whole family.

Wonderful, wonderful movie!!

I absolutely love this heartwarming with smiles all around. Sandra Bullock is engaging and you see her natural gift for comedy. Bill Pullman is a dream and what may initially appear to be an unlikely pairing, you begin to see how perfect he and Sandra are together. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Can't wait until it's available for purchase and not just rent. :)

My favorite movie

This has always been one of my favorite movies, if not my most favorite. It has light comedy, a cozy homey feeling, first love and rescuing the lonely all incorporated around a Christmas holiday setting. The name itself lends to the plot twist at the end. Very pleasant feel-good movie. Also demonstrates the love and support of family. Wish it was available to buy.
