Coming Home For Christmas- A Review of a Sweet Christmas Movie and a GIVEAWAY
Keep reading to the bottom of the post to have your chance to win a copy of this DVD!
I chose to review this DVD with some trepidation. I can never tell about Christmas movies. I either love them or hate them. I can't seem to remain neutral. I have a few old favorites, but Coming Home for Christmas looked like it may be a good addition to my collection.
Sisters have been estranged for five years. When their parents decide to separate, the girls begin to come together. With the help of some new friends they plan a Christmas in their old house and invite both parents. Unfortunately it seems as if all may fall apart and the family may never have a chance to reconnect.
This made my good Christmas movie list. It was really enjoyable. Here are some of my favorite things about Coming Home For Christmas.
*It was very family friendly. I don't have any reservations about sharing it with my kids as a family Christmas movie.
*It was sweet without being too sappy (most of the time). There were a few times it bordered the sappy line, but mostly it was just sweet.
*The characters were "real" people and didn't seem sugary sweet or unreal. They were sometimes not nice. They didn't always tell the truth. They didn't always make the best decisions. But I found it easy to relate to them.
*The ending was good (sorry for the spoiler) but not so perfect as to seem unbelievable.
It really was a Christmas movie I could like. I can definitely recommend this one. You can read the movie's synopsis and watch the trailer below. (And don't forget to keep scrolling to find out how you can win your own copy.)
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this movie in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
