Good Little Movie
13 November 2017 | by ronwalker-39234See all my reviews

I love Christmas TV movies. This one my wife and I enjoyed, although the story line is similar to Deck The Halls which came out around the same time. The music score is superb and I contacted Peter Mazzeo who co wrote most of the songs asking if I could use use a couple on the community radio station where I was a presenter here in the UK. Peter sent me four songs and since that day in 2014 he and I have developed a very special long distant friendship. Although the movie was done on the cheap I think it did have some problems along the way, and certain people had to pull together to get the it completed. It is not the worst TV Christmas movie I have seen, but my wife and I still watch it. When it is scheduled I let Peter know "That Movie Is On Again" I am sure it still has it's fans. At least two here in the UK.
