Making of the Christmas Lodge


Thomas Kinkade painting gallery

Editorial Reviews

Thomas Kinkade presents Christmas Lodge: a place where a heart-warming past and loving future meet for one remarkable group of people. During a weekend trip to the mountains, Mary (Erin Karpluk) finds herself at the now-dilapidated lodge where she spent the holidays with her family growing up. She becomes determined to restore the building to its former glory. Inspired by her grandfather and guided by her grandmother in heaven, Mary throws herself into the project, and during the process finds herself drawn to Jack (Michael Shanks), a handsome man who loves the lodge as much as she does. Historically unlucky in love, this chance encounter allows Mary to renew her faith in life and discover her one true love. For an uplifting story about the importance of faith, family and the true holiday spirit, go to the
Christmas Lodge.

Great wholesome family movie with a good story, very entertaining!

When you finish watching this movie you feel good and you take away something that can make a lasting impact on your life.
Came with some great life lessons and I love that the family showed their faith and love for God.

It's definitely a Christian script. But then, Christmas is based on Christ--His birth. So a strong Christian emphasis is natural. There will be those that cry "Religion" or Preachy" and they are correct. Preaching faith is what Christ's life was about. No violent action here, but instead a family film with a positive message.

Not being a huge fan of Thomas Kinkade, my wife suggested we buy and view this film. Now I'm glad. The Kinkade connection is from one of his paintings. So here we have a G-rated; cozy romance being a result of fate; a save the lodge campaign where its past aligns with its future; it is hope-faith-dreams coming true; through generations of family.

Cast is lead by Mary (Erin Karpluk-TVs "Being Erica") who decides to take the lodge by the horns to save it. Jack (Michael Shanks-TVs "Stargate") is the lodge builders' ancestor trying to keep it alive. Mary's sis Cathie is Victoria Banks, a 1st time acting role, but she also writes and sings 2 tunes for the film: "The Greatest Gift" & "You Believe in Angels". Good stuff. The rest of the cast is not your Oscar-winning stars, but they do make this an enchanting evening in the mountains, with an abundance of beautiful scenic shots. You can almost feel the log fire crackling, aromatic, heat.

Tradition lives on as surely as the family ancestors who put their eternal faith in Christ. It's a new worthy Christmas heart-warmer story in the tradition of "Miracle on 34th Street."

Closed Captioning is available.
Bonus is a "Making of...", trailer, and a Kinkade lodge painting ad.
Dove Family Approved viewing for all ages. It's what my generation used to call "A Norman Rockwell Christmas". Perhaps now we should say, "A Kinkade Christmas."

Mary lives and works in the city, but she is renewed by the times she can escape to the mountains. On a weekend getaway to the mountains with her boyfriend it becomes apparent that the mountains are not his idea of a good time. He wants to hang at the lodge where they are staying and she wants to get out in the fresh air and hike. As they are hiking they come across an injured little girl and her dog. They carry her back to her home, which it turns out is an old lodge where Mary's family had spent the Christmas holidays for years in her young life, until her Grandma died. After that her Grandpa couldn't bear to go back. It has now fallen into disrepair, but Jack, the injured girl's father, is trying to restore it to it's former function as a rustic guest lodge. Just so happens that Mary works in the field of historic restoration and her father and brothers have a construction company. Mary formulates a plan to help get the lodge in shape so that she can bring her family , including her ailing grandfather, back for one more Christmas together at the lodge. Along the way things go south with her boyfriend and Jack's daughter senses romance in the air.
This is very family friendly, aside from a couple of casual uses of the Lord's name. There is no potty humor, or swearing, or violence. There is nothing suggestive--in fact, when Mary is on her weekend away with her boyfriend, they actually get separate rooms at the lodge. How often does that happen in movies these days? Though family friendly, I don't know that it will interest young children. It is mostly about people and relationships and faith. There is no major conflict in the plot.

Summary: Mary is a workaholic in the city who is drawn to the mountains where she grew up. During a weekend visit, she rediscovers The Christmas Lodge where she spent many Christmases with her family growing up. The place has now become run-down, and it is Mary's wish to help restore it to its former glory. In the process, she discovers that God has a very special plan for her life.

This is definitely a faith and family movie. There should be more of this type genre as it has a willing audience. I really wanted to like this movie, but I couldn't seem to "get over" some of its glaring faults. First, Mary's mother is far older than her father, and even, elderly. In fact, she would be much better paired with the grandfather. Mary's father is only middle-aged. I couldn't get past that. It bothered me! Her mother, along with Mary's brothers and sister, were so underdeveloped that the movie fell flat. Mary's mother had too little to say in her interactions and seemed unnatural in her role. The brothers were just "there". Surely, though, that is the difference between Hollywood actors who are paid millions and a low budget film with more than likely, "volunteer" actors. The lead actors: Mary, her father, her grandfather, Jack and Charlene performed quite well, but it just wasn't enough to make this a 4 or 5-star movie. Well, I hope that "they" don't give up. I am a fan of family movies as well as a nice old-fashioned romance. The story itself was heartwarming and would read well as a novel.

This is an odd Christmas movie in that it deals very little with Christmas except that it happens to be about a place that's called "Christmas Lodge."
The greatest obstacle to this endeavor is its lack of passion in every regard. This is a movie that is so careful in its presentation that it literally avoids any of the human pratfalls we're all subject to at all times. There is so real turmoil, no suggestion of the Lodge not being renovated in time for Christmas, and most certainly no suspense where the loveless love interest is concerned. And that's the worst feature in this film: the love story. Except for the proposal and the acceptance thereof, you'd never know there was anything between the two lovebirds. They act like total strangers throughout even though they've known each other off and on for decades. When love and marriage is mentioned it's like a weather forecast, there's nothing heartfelt about it. It's less than casual, it's convenient.
I think its misguided projects like this that do a disservice to Christianity. Christians are real people, not just walking platitudes. Everything about this movie was too pat, too safe; a foregone conclusion from beginning to end, not a surprise in the bunch, pleasant or unpleasant.
I didn't mind watching it once but there's certainly no reason to watch it again.
