Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth is the star of a successful cooking show and author of several cookbooks. But when her manager, Alexander, sees forest ranger Jefferson, who lost his cabin in a fire, comment on TV about wishing he could get a home-cooked Christmas dinner, he arranges for a special live show on Christmas, for Elizabeth to cook him Christmas Dinner. Only Elizabeth can't cook, and trying to keep Jefferson and the viewing public from finding out on a live show may be a little difficult.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not an Oscar - Just Great Entertainment July 18, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While I agree with the previous reviewer regarding the original movie being a classically better production, I must say that I find this remake with Dyan Cannon and Kris Kristopherson a delightful and light holiday movie. It is one of those "feel good" holiday movies that gets you in the spirit of Christmas. Tony Curtis is halirious as the producer who is worried about ratings and network politics; the side stories are light and provide comic relief every few scenes. If you are looking for a deeply emotional movie like "It's a Wonderful Life", then this movie is not for you. However, if you, like me, want to intersperse George Bailey (admittedly a humourous movie in many areas) with a few laughs and a simple, light hearted movie during the Christmas season, give this movie a chance. If you're looking for light-hearted romance based on the spirit of Christmas, you won't be disappointed with this remake (or the original) Christmas in Connecticut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Update of a Christmas Classic December 19, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I actually rented this movie the first time by mistake after a freind had recommended the original with Barbara Stanwyck. After viewing both versions (both are excellent) I decided that I prefered this timely updated version. Dyan Carrol is charming as the Martha Stewart-type hostess of a tv cooking and home-craft show who dispite being unmarried and living in a sparse city loft, broadcasts a quite different image to her viewing audience. She talks on her show about her (totally fictitious) daughter, grandchild, husband and her big country house in Connecticut while cooking up gourmet dishes that are actually produced behind the scenes by her assistant. Her producer (played with hysterical results by Tony Curtis) cooks up a publicity scheme involving a live Christmas show broadcast from her Connecticut "home" where she will be surrounded by her "friends and family". When he also arranges for her to be playing hostess to a reluctant local hero (played by Kris Kristofferson), who is unaware that this is all a charade, an already humorous plotline becomes a series of hilarious mixups, mishaps and mistaken identities. This truly wonderful, heartwarming and funny movie is sure to become one of your holiday favorites too.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Remake of the Original October 2, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay - I admit it, I love Dyan Cannon and even though this doesn't have the depth or sentimentality of the original, this more contemporary version is still a great holiday film. Cannon's comic timing here is great and the best reason to get this version. Yeah, it's cute, but it is also charming and good fun. Recommended for your annual holiday viewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Remake! October 6, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
I have seen the original 1945 Christmas in Connecticut movie that starred Barbara Stanwyck, I taped it when it was shown on TCM and there is no doubt that it is a wonderful movie that is very underated when it comes to Christmas classics but I also liked the 1992 made for cable remake and no it wouldn't win an Emmy Award but it was a pretty charming movie and every year I try to buy at least one Chrismas movie on DVD for my collection and this past Christmas of 2004 I bought this movie on DVD and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christmas movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Sappy For Once August 2, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Most Christmas movies make me want to run for the insulin because they are so sappy sweet. Not this one! This modern remake of the old classic is just what today's Christmas movies needed. Dyan Cannon is smart, savvy, and willing to own up to her mistakes. Kris Kristofferson is the perfect earthy foil to be the hero, and Tony Curtis' masterful comedic rendition of the interfering obnoxious boss adds just the right amount of spice.

For those who like good feelings without the overdone sugar, this movie is a perfect holiday favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Remake! December 22, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is very good, I haven't seen the original yet and even if I do ever get to see it and I like it I will still like this wonderful modern remake, I have always liked Dyan Cannon and I thought she was great in this movie and so was Kris Kristofferson, I really hope that someday this movie is put on DVD! As far as remakes go this is probably one of the better remakes and I recommend it to anyone who collects Christmas movies!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great remake! October 5, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I enjoy watching this remake as much as the original. Well worth watching for the whole family. It used to be on TV several times during the holidays but I haven't seen it the past 2 or 3 years. I'm glad to see it's out on video so I can add it to my Christmas movie collection.
