Catch matinee show, you might not feel as cheated as I did. Direct to DVD or cable would have been MUCH better. Typical. Very disappointed. I thought I was watching a Tyler Perry's...

I loved it because it had so much meaning. I cried, clapped and shouted out loud because I could identity with the characters. Everyone will not be able to relate--but I did enjoy it very much. For a change--no sex, nudity--just a warm, heartfelt story about the real meaning of Christ-mas! Enjoy Deborah

VERY GREAT MOVIE; PLOT; BUT MOST OF ALL THE ACTORS WERE WONDERFUL, MOVIE WAS NOT LONG ENOUGH. I WOULD ACTUALLY RATE THIS A 5 STAR SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE ACTORS. WE NEED MORE MOVIES LIKE THAT

Surprise Sleeper!

I went to this movie - not quite sure what to expect. Jennifer Hudson plays a single mom who loses her place and sends her son to go live with Grandparents that he's never met. Surprise, Grandfather is a minister. Angela Bassett is wonderful and beautiful and her character is so "healing." When I started watching this - I thought "great this looks like a musical with nothing but Jennifer Hudson in it"...(eye roll). But it take surprising turns. This little Man by the name of Jacob Latimore starts singing and he is nothing short of AMAZING! His mom sends him off on a bus...then it started getting old fast - there was a song about a "motherless child" that the lyrics were horrible... I was about to leave. Then he shows up in NY through a chain of events the kid ends up in jail. Tyrese Gibson shows up in it (I hadn't read the credits first). - I knew everything was going to change and it was going to be worth sticking around for. I don't want to ruin the ending but I cried.

I think it's a must see for the Holiday, it left a good taste in y mouth for the hope it carried on screen. I'm affraid it wont reach many because of the title and I think it would make a good musicial play.When is the DVD out? I want my church to show it on Movie night!
