Great holiday movie, begins with one year's Christmas, and then another one later in the movie. Rob Lowe gives a very real performance of a young man faced with the possibility of death due to a heart abnormality. Tracy Gold plays the little sister. The quality of this DVD is not that great, it looks the same as it did when I used to watch it on a recorded VHS tape over 20 years ago...but the reminiscent movie itself makes up for that. Great family film, makes you realize how important family is.
