This is a "must see" for me every year and my eyes still water when I watch it. It's such a good movie to help me to remember my blessings and all that I have. And that family and friends mean more than anything.

I can't imagine a Christmas season without this movie.

Not to be Scrooge, but I really don't like this movie. Is there anyone else out there who feels that way?

I love it but my husband doesn't care for it at all. He watches it with me every year but it's not on the top of his list of things to do.

Val, though I do like this movie, I am always happy to hear from the other side!! Can you put to words why you don't like it? I'm curious Whistling

I like Jimmy Stewart movies as a rule, but there are some where he goes over the top, becoming melodramatic and even shrill. This is one of those movies. I like him best in quiet serious movies.

Oops, yes Alma, as you clearly figured out, my question was directed to you! I'll have to be thinking about that next time I watch it.
