I love a good Christmas movie, even if it is a sappy story I can accept it if it is a Christmas movie. Last week my husband and I watched Coming Home for Christmas, a Norman Rockwell, Nasser Group DVD.
About the Movie
After their parents separate, two estranged sisters who haven’t been on speaking terms reunite in hopes that having a family Christmas all together for the first time in years will bring their Mom and Dad close again. They plan to do this in their old family home… the only problem is someone else lives there now.
The DVD includes a limited edition Norman Rockwell print!

The Mom Maven’s Thoughts
The story was ok but predictable. I never became emotionally involved in the movie or felt empathy for any of the characters. The acting was average, no one stood out, it felt like I was watching an under-funded made-for-TV movie. The scenery was gorgeous! The movie was filmed in British Columbia and I loved the beautiful mountains. It is a very family-friendly movie with no bad language, sex, nudity etc. Personally this will not be joining my “must watch” Christmas movie collection and I will give it a grade of a C, it wasn’t wonderful but it wasn’t horrible either.
