    Perfect Christmas movie

    I had been looking for this movie for a long time after watching it every Christmas for several years. Lost track of it and now have found it to play to my hearts content.

    Like attending church

    When my wife and I first went we felt some what guilty because we went on a Sunday evening. However after going we definitely felt we had been to church. The movie is much better than the original The Bishops Wife. That is rare as most remakes fall far short of the original. Great family entertainment.
