THIS MOVIE HAS BECOME RIGHT UP THERE WITH MY OTHER FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE: SCROOGE, STARRING ALASTAIR SIM AS SCROOGE! IT IS A MOST MOVING STORY, THE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT STARS WERE CHOSEN, FOR LITTLE FERN, TOO (ALISON PILL), FOR EACH ROLE AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL SCENERY, BESIDES! THE ACTING IS VERY TRUE-TO-LIFE AND MAKES ME FEEL ALMOST LIKE THE CHARACTERS ARE THE ACTORS AND ACTRESSES! IN THEIR REAL LIVES! NOW THAT IS ACTING! JUST A PERFECT MOVIE, AND I HAVE GIVEN COUNTLESS PEOPLE THIS DVD FOR A CHRISTMAS GIFT! SURE WISH I COULD'VE SEEN IT IN THE THEATER WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT!
Very predictable. Irratating that it had to start out by putting in a sleazy scene where elderly Andy Griffith gets a squeeze from his girlfriend under the table at a restuarant. Main character (Naomi Judd) is too perfect. Andy Griffith says he can't marry his girlfriend of several years because he misses his deceased wife, that is until she gets some of his old friends together and he instantly changes his mind-very shallow. On the good side-no sex, violence or curse words.
