Three Christmas Movie Favorites
January 23, 2014
My family has a growing collection of Christmas movies (we usually add one or two a year), and we already had two of these movies. However, I wanted to add The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, and the three-pack price was irresistible. My favorite of the three movies remains Moonlight and Mistletoe, mostly because of the actors, but I watch all of them every Christmas season and never tire of the stories. From a Christian perspective there are a few questionable scenes in The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. The "white lies" that Morgan tells to help his new friends (with whom the viewer sympathizes), and Morgan's break-in at the bicycle store (which leads the viewer to justify the criminal act because the store owner is a mean guy). But the viewer shrugs off the incidents as necessary means to an end. Otherwise, the story has many elements of humor and warmth. Henry Winkler ties everything together as the doting uncle.
First, let me qualify my review by saying that there are not many movies that I enjoy. This set of movies had many of the typical weaknesses that I dislike - mainly due to poor script writing. Most of the acting was good, but the inconsistencies in some of the characters were jarring to me. I always dislike people "supposedly" falling in love after brief encounters, and contrived events like "accidental" bathroom encounters. I would rather watch another Sherwood film with bad acting but interesting story lines.
