    Angels Sing is a shameless holiday movie, one that will stop at nothing — even killing off characters — to try to wring one last bit of emotion out of the audience. show more

    Angels Sing is a heartfelt but less-than-polished piece of work that isn’t for everyone, particularly those who can’t suspend the disbelief required to accept preposterous plot developments, or the sight of Lyle Lovett wearing a variety of snowman sweatshirts. But graded on a Christmas-movie curve, it actually isn’t bad. show more

    Working from a script by Lou Berney, which in turn was adapted from a novel by Turk Pipkin, director Tim McCanlies maintains an even hand throughout, so that neither the moments of broad comedy nor the stretches of tearjerking sentimentality get out of hand. show more

    It’s as thinly written and unoriginal as made-for-television seasonal filler, and why it isn’t on the Hallmark Channel or Lifetime is a mystery, but fans of the singers in it might get a kick out of seeing them. show more

    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!
