Movie Review - CHRISTMAS ANGEL




Young Olivia is intrigued by the spooky old dark house next door. Her best buddy, Lucas, tells her it's a wishing house – all you have to do to make your wish come true is throw rocks at it and break some glass!

Olivia and her classmates have an assignment to do before the holidays – My Impossible Wish. One of Olivia's classmates is a foster child whose impossible wish is to get a new, horrendously expensive bike for Christmas. Olivia goes to the wishing house and wishes the foster kid could get the bike he wants - without breaking any glass.

Olivia's wish is mysteriously granted, as are some more of the wishes she wanted for other people. Suddenly, the wishing house is besieged by rock-throwing kids.

Olivia wonders if the granted wishes have something to do with the strange blue light that emanates from inside the spooky old dark house at night. Could there be an angel in there, granting all these seemingly impossible Christmas wishes?

But Olivia is smart and curious and needs to find out exactly who, or what, is really behind all these granted wishes.

There's also a wee bit of a romance story too, for Olivia's single mom. One of Olivia's Christmas wishes is for her mom to find a husband.

This is a must-see Christmas family movie! It has a wonderful message of selflessness and giving to others, and is one of the best message movies I've ever seen.

The cast is superb, especially the two best friends, Olivia and Lucas played by Izabela Vidovic and Tyler Humphrey respectively. I've rarely seen two such incredibly talented kids in a movie. They are funny and adorable and you and your family will absolutely love this movie. Highly recommended.

And it's so new, 2012, there's not even a cover for it on Amazon yet at the time of posting.
