Ypu are missing a bet if you do not see this great holiday movie. The acting, singing and story are truly fun. I am not sure why this has not been marketed better. Get in the spirit, see Angels SIng!

Our family watched this movie and we loved it. It is a great Christmas story with heartfelt messages of forgiveness, faith and love. So well done. Everything about this movie made you smile and even shed a tear or two. A great conversation opener between parents and children! See it, definitely!
