This is an updated version of O. Henry's classic short story "The Gift of the Magi" with added subplots and twists. As light romantic entertainment, it's a sweet Christmas movie to watch curled up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate or cider, or both. (No sex scenes, objectionable language, or obnoxious laugh track.)

O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi" is a 2,070-word short story. "Gift of the Magi" is an 85-minute film. One way to stretch the pithy short story to that length, I suppose, is to have the actors speak verrrrry slowly. The way the film chooses is to introduce subplots in this modern retelling of the classic.

As I assume most of the would-be viewers of this film are familiar with the short story, I'll discuss the changes. Some are trivial. In the story, for example, the last name of Della and Jim (the husband and wife) is Young. In the film, it's Alexander. The story has the article "The" at the beginning of the title; the film does not. Some are understandable for a modern retelling. Instead of a watch fob chain and hair combs, the gifts here are a steering wheel for a vintage car that Jim works on incessantly and a zoom lens for a camera that Della loves. I don't see any great harm in that change. But some changes are hard to understand and do detract from the qualities that made the short story so popular.

At this point, I face a problem. Describing the biggest change involves giving away a key element that occurs in the second half of the film and might well constitute a spoiler. I will say that there is a somewhat adult element added. By this, I mean that there's a plot element that parents might have to explain to children. There's neither graphic language nor graphic scenes, but imagine, if you will, if, in [...], Mrs. Cratchit had suspected Bob Cratchit of striking Tiny Tim. I should imagine parents would be uncomfortable explaining to children why an adult might hit a child. There's no physical abuse here, but there is an adult theme that might make this film less than ideal for children. And that's a shame since the original story is so simple.

My wife and I saw the Gift of the Magi on TV and we wanted our own copy of the DVD. The Gift of the Magi is a very inspirational movie. It shows what two people will do to show their unconditional love for each other.

It is a Hallmark movie, so you know it is nicely put together. I am happy to have it in my Christmas collection. Nice looking young couple who have an issue because of a misunderstanding. Read the book, or better yet buy and watch the movie. I am sure you will not regret having this movie.

The thought and the message about the movie was good. However, I thought that there was something missing that most Hallmark movies have, it didn't move me as much as other Hallmark movies do. The storyline was sweet, but I thought the way things happened at the end was kind of wierd. all their time and money saved. I didn't get the point at the end, I guess. I don't want to give away the movie, but please don't waste your money and just watch it off the Hallmark channel. one word, disappointment. watch The Christmas Wish instead!
