I first bought this DVD because I had heard about Jared Padalecki (Supernatural) was playing in it. And now, I enjoy watching this Christmas story every time I just want to sit down in front of the television and enjoy a lovable movie. This movie is sweet, a perfect story about a family stuggle to keep their home. It might not be oscar worthy, but it is a good purchase for any fans of light story flicks.
I also enjoyed Padalecki's performance. Being so used of seeing him battling on demons and evil monsters (I am a huge fan of the TV show Supernatural), it was amazing to see him being able to perform a lighter genre.
I give this movie a 5 stars, not for being the most outstanding movie of all time, but for a well told story based on true events. I sure wish we could have some sequel, where we could get to see where Kinkade and Nanette finally get together (I loved that one scene where Jared and Tegan are walking in the snow, and the Jared voice over says "That's another story for another time" or something like that).
