I thought it was a great cast and liked the story line. It may have been predictable but it is a feel good movie and I think the world could use more of that right now. I love Tim Janis' music and appreciate all he does. I also believe in angels.

Great music, performances, story and talent. No question. Bring it back every year. Kudos to Tim Janis for his first film.

The famous actors were about the only interesting thing. I was quite disappointed. Plus, sitting through ads for "The Prom" put a bad taste in my mouth before the feature even started. Then, the Gene Kelly tribute was just his wife talking about him. It was interesting, but some actual clips from his movies would have been nice.

A really great family movie. Very inspiring to everyone, especially young kids. I will get the CD when it comes out - and watch over and over.

We enjoyed the movie... thought it would have more musical numbers in it. There were times where the voice and lip movement were not synced.. the tribute to Gene Kelly was great, but wish there were clips of him dancing!

The film was produced well but the writing was a bit cheesy and the music was pretty derivative. I even recognized bits of stolen musical phrases from some Broadway musicals. However, the children who attended seemed to really enjoy it. My biggest disappointment was the ad-on piece regarding Gne Kelly., His wife told some wonderful stories about specific dance numbers and encouraged us to look out for certain things, but the movie tribute did not show any of the dance numbers. It looked they intended to includ them but, for some odd reason, did not obtain the rights to do so. Very confusing

Although they're ate a few technical problems already started here, the acting was excellent and it was well done. Loved all of the cast, especially Lansbury, Van Dyke, and McGrath. Would love to purchase on Blu-ray.

Not sure just what it was. Probably suited for Hallmark channel. Seems like an incomplete movie? Why would it only be shown once? Would not recommend this movie to anyone. Interesting concept, but not coherent.

The cast and set direction is generally excellent. The story disappointingly cliched. The score generally derivative and dubbing awful. Frankly, we hoped for much more...

the sound track did not match the mouth movements of the actors - very bad sound mixing - made it hard to watch good actors made to look like bad ones

My whole family and my friends who attended all loved this movie. It was touching and beautiful, and it got us all into the Christmas spirit. The message of hope and believing is a timeless one that resonates so well at this time of year!

Sweet story. Made me cry. Could have flushed out characters more, developed stoey more...made into a series.

Didn't really flow good for me. It was kind of a downer. The set and scenery were good but making it a musical seemed strange.
