Saturday, we went to see Bo's family to celebrate his birthday with them. Since it was raining we were inside. I asked nicely if we could not watch a western (what his dad prefers to watch) if we could watch a Christmas movie instead. His dad said he didn't care because he was going to take a nap on his chair in front of the TV.
So,we watchedDebbie Macomber's Mrs. Miracle on Hallmark. Okay basically I watched the entire movie, but Bo's dad sometime into his nap asked if Mrs. Miracle was an angel. So I think he listened to most of the movie. Bo and his mom were in and out of the living room, but wanted to know what was going on. I think overall we all enjoyed this movie and it was way better than a 50 year old western.
It was really good, and Doris Roberts was excellent. I would have to say I have seen better child actors, but they still did an okay job.
I did explain to Bo that most Christmas movies have the same plot - a tragic event, some mysterious person comes into main characters life, main character finds love, main character works out problems, it snows, mystery person leaves without main character knowing. This movie pretty much follows that line of events. But I liked it, just like I like most Christmas movies.
So do you have movies to recommend watch while it is raining out?
I should also say I got this picture from the TV Guide website.
