GIVEAWAY and Review: Coming Home for Christmas DVD


My Thoughts:

"Coming Home for Christmas" is a sweet and family friendly new movie that has been released to DVD this year. The story line is simplistic enough for children to understand even though the dynamics of the family are more complicated. I watched this movie with my husband, but will not hesitate to watch it with my 7 1/2 year old daughter. The plot is predictable and does have a happy ending. The overall theme of the story is holding tight to family ties and practicing forgiveness and overcoming obstacles together as a family. I did have a hard time buying the "mom" character only because I think they cast her too young. Some parts were super cheesy, but I think those types of interactions will be appealing towards younger audiences who might miss out on subtle nuances. It is a nice, wholesome movie that I think would be enjoyed by families with younger kids.

Below you can see a short preview of the movie to see what you think.



About COMING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS 

After their parents separate, two estranged sisters who haven't been on speaking terms reunite in hopes that having a family Christmas all together for the first time in years will bring their Mom and Dad close again. They plan to do this in their old family home... the only problem is someone else lives there now. The DVD includes a limited edition Norman Rockwell print!

Director: Vanessa Parise Cast: George Canyon (Christmas Miracle, Dawn Rider, Man of Steel), Aaron Pritchett, Britt McKillip (Dead Like Me), Carly McKillip (Hot Rod) $14.99 Available at Walmart Soundtrack also available featuring holiday songs performed by George Canyon

Who is This Movie Aimed For?

The audience for this movie is primarily families, but would be enjoyed by couples and children groups as well.

It is so hard to get quality movies these days. Even though our daughters are grow with families of their own, we still only view movies with a PG 13 rating or lower. We have nothing in our home that us not family friendly.

Christmas movies are my all time favorite to watch. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to win this movie. It would make a great date night movie for my husband and me.
