"Coming Home for Christmas" DVD Review & Giveaway!! (11/27)

*Disclosure: I was provided a copy of the following movie in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own.

About Coming Home For Christmas
After their parents separate, two estranged sisters who haven't been on speaking terms reunite in hopes that having a family Christmas all together for the first time in years will bring their Mom and Dad close again. They plan to do this in their old family home... the only problem is someone else lives there now.


Director: Vanessa Parise
Cast: George Canyon (Christmas Miracle, Dawn Rider, Man of Steel), Aaron Pritchett, Britt McKillip (Dead Like Me), Carly McKillip (Hot Rod)
 
The DVD includes a limited edition Norman Rockwell print!  Who is Norman Rockwell? Rockwell was famous for his famous American culture illustrations and artwork. He was born in the late 1800’s and died in the mid 1900’s.

This is the Norman Rockwell print that came with my DVD...sorry the picture turned out a bit blurry.
 
My Review:
 The kids and I had a little movie night at my mom's house to watch this movie.  The kids enjoyed it and made us laugh at their comments and reactions throughout the movie.  Morgan would get squirmy each time there was a romantic moment...there wasn't even kissing!  It was too funny!  Blake had a really hard time keeping the sisters straight in the movie.  I couldn't blame him, since they're real-life sisters they do look A LOT alike!  Every scene change he was asking, "Is that the big one?", meaning the older sister.  He had a hard time sitting still and paying attention, though, so he may have been a little young to watch it.

As far as the movie itself, I think the storyline was cute and fun.  I think the acting was quite good for a lower budget film, but the actor's lines, or script, didn't seem to flow well all the time.  All-in-all, it was a very enjoyable movie though.  A nice movie to watch with the family this Christmas season and remember how nice it is to have loved ones together sharing traditions on Christmas. :-)
 
Buy it!:
 "Coming Home for Christmas" can be purchased at Wal-Mart for $14.99.
