I went to the premiere of this movie that was financed and produced by Ms. Jackson. It is based on the book by the same name. Being that the film was made on a tight budget(at times it really shows)it was a labor of love for Ms. Jackson. It stays very true to the book and though most of the actors are unknown they met my expectations of the main characters in the story. If you are a fan of Ms. jackson you will appreciate the time and effort she took to bring her characters to life.

Ms. Jackson
I had to let you know that I have watched your movie several times and I want to congratulate you and your son on a job well done. For this to be your first movie produced is unreal. It was very professionally done. It is definitely a movie I could watch any time of the year, but I do look forward to watching it again at Christmas. Its movies like this that really gets me in the Christmas spirit. The actors were amazing. Please continue to keep up the good work, because I already know that your books bring a lot of sunshine into many lives; hopefully you have other movies in the works that will do the same. Again congratulations and keep up the good work.

I really enjoyed this movie. I read as many books by Brenda Jackson as I can get my hands on! :) My copy (and perhaps it was just due to tight budgets), has some sounds issues and although I've tried watching on different TVs the result is still the same... It's just a little choppy and at times very difficult to hear - but I completely understand budget restraints and simply enjoy that one of her books was able to be made into a movie! :) My only critique would be that I feel like Felicia's character is a little to 'fake'... She's definitely a feisty character in general but I didn't feel like the actress delivered a totally believable performance. But hey! It's just my opinion and what do I know?! I'm definitely not an actress. Haha. Overall I really enjoyed the characters coming to life!

Brenda Jackson is amazing at weaving words together and making magic. However, this movie fell so short, you're forced to search for something good to say. Maybe it's because the characters that I read about in the book are not being portrayed properly on the screen, but, I found it impossible to connect to them. The woman playing Felicia was such a bad actress I'm convinced she thought that she was still auditioning. She tried so hard to play the role that you could actually tell that she was trying. There was no acting from her, there was only reciting words she'd memorized from a script. She also took forever to finish a sentence and pronounce her words. Why did nobody yell cut and force her to do it again? Her attitude never changed, she was mad the whole time, even while talking to her son about Trask. She played the same role from beginning to end. It was like listening to a singer sing in the same key. And why, I ask, is this child asking for a daddy? He's way too old for this. The character definitely should have been younger. It really was a struggle to sit through.

Clayton and Syneda have always been portrayed as the married couple that can't keep their hands off each other. I didn't see or feel any passion from these two, which left me sorely disappointed.

Quick note: the picture of the uncles....which one was Jake? Because none of them were attention grabbers. Honestly, Trask and Clayton didn't even get my attention. The men in Mrs. Jackson's books are supposed to be drop dead gorgeous and well, they weren't that.

Although I won't stop reading Mrs. Jackson's books, because she is an amazing writer, I may be forced to leave her movies to those of you who actually liked this one. There is a talent that goes into choosing a great cast for a movie, so I have to wonder, who was involved in casting this movie? Whoever it was, does not have the Midas touch.

I ordered this as a gift for my mom but I gave it to her early. She loves it! It was brand new, didn't take as long as estimated to ship to my home (I always love that) I'm so happy my mom loved it. I will be ordering from this seller again.

I had to skip through this movie a bit because the acting is HORRIBLE! On the dinner scene the news reporter lady even made an expression before the text even came in (the text was supposed to be unexpected). Sorry the acting is horrible! Sounded like they were reading straight from the book, pausing at the periods, commas etc and all......

I ended up watching this movie during a random night at a friend's house who has Netflix. A random romantic movie was picked and this was it. This movie was obviously low budget and just all over the place. Not to mention everything in it was contrived and done before, from the little boy wanting to a "Christmas daddy" to the leads' love/hate typical romantic movie romance. I said it was all over the place because not only was the editing weird, but the tone was too. There was the typical mushy family Christmas movie subplot with the boy but also there was "steamy" love scenes that weren't explicit and didn't show much more than kissing, but went on too long for a "family" film. And there was more than one. Oh, and did I mention... The acting was terrible! The female lead can bearly act and nothing she said was believable like she actually came up with her words on the spot. I've never heard of Brenda Jackson before this movie but I'm guessing the book was better than the movie (also explains all the subplots and the unnecessary PG-13 love scenes which were probably different in the book but lowered in the film to "keep it for the family"). Really a shame.
