This movie is a find! It manages to deal with real people in a realistic way without resorting to the usual easy gimmick of making the people nasty and hostile. The people here are not perfect, but they are sympathetic.

Also, the relationships in this family are very realistic--again without making anyone a pain or an impossible person. Whoever wrote this had a lot of understanding of the relations between grown siblings and between grown children and their parents.

The film also explores some of the big questions of life and how important "little things" are in those big questions. The mother's admitting that she gave an incomplete version of her recipe to a friend who had admired the dish, and that she had been bothered by that and wants to make it right--this was priceless. Also, her determination to return the library book!

The transitions of the characters are well-developed and believable. They manage to work things out without everyone suddenly becoming angelic creatures without a fault in the world.

If you like human dramas about real but decent people, this is not a film to be missed. There are all too few like it.

This moving incorperates all the elements of a magical, beautiful Christmas! Tracey Neeham (Sarah) is a terrific actress and her character is someone I would like as a friend. At first I thought that Natasha Gregson Wagner was not a very good actress because she was so "dead pan." Then I realized that her character, Beth, is a self-centered, pasionless, joyless person until the "magic" begins. Ronny Cox, Buddy, is one of the best character actors of our time and, of course, Meredith Baxter never disappoints. An enjoyable, heartwarming movie for Christmas or anytime!

I picked this up because I had seen Meredith Baxter's other movie, A Christmas Visitor and loved it. I was also a fan of her show, Family Ties. I didn't expect much, and was pleasantly surprised. It's a great story. Sure, it's got the feel of a low budget "movie of the week" kind of thing, but it was a lot of fun. I think that it will become a Christmas classic for me to watch every year !

I am a 70 year old Marine who has been around the block a number of times and is still a little on the tough side and am not ashamed to say this movie brought a real strong reaction and a great bunch of tears rolling down this old gnarled face . It is a very beautiful story to add to anyone's Christmas list and by the way was among the cheaper ones at the time compared to many of the other ones's being sold Loved it!

This is a wonderful Christmas movie. The whole time I'm watching it, I'm thinking how great it would be to have that extra chance to spend one more holiday with my mom, whom passed away, and whom LOVED Christmas. I recommend this movie to everyone.

Who has not wished for just one more day with a loved one who has passed on? One more opportunity to say I love you and to feel the warmth of their hug? One last chance to right a wrong? What if you prayed for that one more day and God answered your prayer? Would it, could it, possibly change your life?

A grieving father and husband wants that one more day with his deceased wife. His two daughters, living miles apart and estranged for years, reunite due to his having a stroke just before Christmas. He convinces them to spend the holiday at a small cottage on a lake, where they used to live as a family, surrounded by the beauty of mountains and a snowy landscape. After the settle in, the father finds his wish is granted and their lives are changed forever.

On Christmas morning, their mother appears on the scene - shocking them all. (Yes, she is the angel.) Once they realize she is only to be with them for one day, they treasure every moment as their mother creates a Christmas they will never forget. The father is renewed, pulled from his grief at last. The daughters are reconciled, making life-changing decisions due to a whole new perspective given them by the gift of those brief few hours with their mother. As hearts are healed, they open to let in light and love.

The message is that life goes on and those we love are always with us, living in our hearts as we remember all the little things that made our lives with them wonderful.

Music from Angel in the Family.
Hi Mr. Michael Manjarrez.I would like to know that myself. It sounds like an old classic from the 40s or 50s maybe. I also love the other Christmas songs in the movie. Please let me know if you found out anything.My name is Mary and I love this movie.
