I saw this film for the first time last Christmas and was instantly hooked. It has just been released on DVD and I felt that I had to add it to my collection. This is an excellent story of an estranged family that comes together during a seeming tragedy and reconnects to become a family again. Barry Bostwick is excellent as the patriarch who cheated and lost his family over his indiscretions, and finally as he is preparing to remarry a much younger woman, realizes just what he had and has a change of heart and humbles himself and is able to reestablish a relationship with his former wife and children. This movie is, in my opinion, a classic. I highly recommend this film.

We showed Holiday Baggage at Spruce Point Assisted Living in Florence, Oregon, and at Willamette Oaks Retirement Apartments in Eugene, Oregon. Everyone loved it and these folks are "picky." I also was privileged to read and critique the first scripts sent to me by Catherine Rubey, the writer and executive producer. I was excited about Holiday Baggage then and am most impressed with the final product. You'll love it too.

This isn't a mindless holiday romance and it really isn't geared to children.
Cheryl Ladd plays her role well as Sarah, an even-keeled woman who has basically raised her two daughters to adulthood without the help of her absentee husband. When he sets up a meeting with her after a prolonged separation she has no idea what is coming. He wants her to finally sign the divorce papers so he can go off to the Bahamas and marry his girlfriend that is about the age of his daughters--and he wants his daughters to come to the wedding. Barry Bostwick is convincing as Pete, the irresponsible husband/father who has found an exit every time things got hard. His wife agrees to sign the divorce papers if he tells their daughters about the divorce and his upcoming nuptials, and suddenly he finds himself on the floor, in pain and gasping for breath.
Pete ends up in the hospital, but refuses to stay. Sarah, who is a pediatrician, keeps him at their home to watch over him until the tests for his diagnosis are completed and he is in the clear and this means he is in on the family Thanksgiving and Christmas. This angers their oldest daughter, who has never forgiven her Dad for leaving them. And both daughters are surprised to learn that their parents have never officially been divorced.
*SPOILERS*
Things get pretty tangled in a web that includes surrogate motherhood, a widower next door who is very friendly with Sarah and who happens to be a friend of Pete's and their daughter's father-in-law, the youngest daughter's boyfriend who is leaving the country, and Pete's young fiancee who is beginning to feel neglected and shows up at a most inopportune time. The storyline also includes a death, a home birth, and an angry tirade from daughter to father.

Sometimes we just need to get back to the old places and be reminded of what we really had. This movie brought a father back in touch with his family. He realized that he never stopped loving his wife and he really missed his daughters even though they were grown. He didn't realize how much he loved his wife until he saw that someone else was in love with her. I will let you buy the movie to find out who! You won't be disappointed with this movie. Good acting on all parts.

Baggage ... we all accumulate some along the way of life. The trick is to know which pieces are worth carrying and which need to be left by the wayside. That takes wisdom and discernment. Sometimes it takes a hefty jolt of reality before said wisdom or discernment can kick in.

Pete was carrying a whole lot of baggage in the form of a soon-to-be ex-wife, one sad daughter who is pregnant, one angry daughter whose wedding he did not attend and a soon-to-be new wife near his daughter's age. Then along comes a heart attack, right after he informs his wife he is remarrying and hands her divorce papers to sign. Since Pete refuses to stay in the hospital where he belongs, his doctor wife, Sarah, takes him into her home.

His stay extends through Thanksgiving and Pete begins to feel the tug of his heart, as he remembers holidays past and begins to recognize there is an irreplaceable history here. As Christmas rolls around, an incident occurs that proves to be a pivotal point. It allows his eldest daughter to air her hurt and anger, while his younger daughter reveals her deep sadness. Pete is convicted and realizes the damage he has caused. As his youngest daughter is in labor, Pete makes a decision that will change his family's life for the better.

This movie is about realizing when we need to drop some baggage in order to carry the baggage that matters most. Baggage doesn't have to be something negative. The baggage Pete ends up carrying are the pieces of his family's history - the family he and Sarah created, nurtured and now can watch grow through a grandparent's eyes. This baggage is lightweight and valuable. Enclosed in its interior are memories of love and laughter and hurt and reconciliation and forgiveness. All the things that make a life worthwhile.
