Movie Description: The Christmas Break-In

The children in Millie’s family can’t wait for Grandma to arrive with her special Christmas apron. According to tradition, each grandchild will write down the gift he or she wants most in the world, and then slip that wish into the apron’s pocket. Then, on Christmas morning, those wished-for gifts will be magically waiting under the tree. But then eleven-year-old Millie overhears her parents: the family can’t afford gifts for all the little ones. She pictures the disappointment on her siblings’ faces: nothing to open on Christmas morning. Is Millie willing to sacrifice her own whole-soul wish so that someone else’s can come true? Full of tender emotion and delightful surprise, this story reminds us of the miracles that unfold when we think of others before ourselves.

My Review:

The movie starts with a bit of Home Alone-style slapstick, but not to worry, it's not ALL that way (though that is where they hide the humor). The Christmas Break-In is a perfectly clean (no swear words! REALLY!) family-friendly Christmas movie for when you want to sit back as a family and enjoy spending time together. There are some good morals taught, and if you can get past the idea that an elementary student would be left alone outside in the middle of a blizzard waiting for a ride after school and the principal and teachers all take off (believe me, this would never happen), it's a cute flick. My family enjoyed the show, and my favorite part were the outtakes that accompanied the end credits. It was pretty cool to have Danny Glover in it. He was amazing and the little girl was cute.
