      Jeff M This above-average TV movie originally made for TNT somehow manages to take the true and tired cliches we've come to expect from myriad other holiday movies and create something that feels a little bit new and different. There are certainly echoes of A CHRISTMAS CAROL here, among other seasonal staples, but credit to Lowe for creating a protagonist for whom we both cheer and lambast because of his choices. I imagine it's quite difficult to make a character who retains his likability even when he makes life choices that are obviously not the best, but Lowe's journey is one we follow quite willingly. And he is ably supported by a wonderful supporting cast, particularly the always reliable Conroy. Without giving away too much, the only big drawback I have involved a character played by Christopher Lloyd. The performance is fine, but the whole plot device involving his character, particularly the Shyamalan-esque explanation at the end, doesn't feel as realistic as the rest of the movie and definitely strains credibility. But overall, I was surprisingly impressed with this movie, and while I'm not going to put Lowe in the pantheon of DeNiro and Pacino, I'm beginning to think he's an underrated actor who just hasn't made the wisest of choices in the past. This is definitely one of his better ones. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Patricia M I loved this thoughtful movie about the meaning of success. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/29/22 Full Review farah r Terrible cast and very predictable. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad for a made-for-TV- Christmas movie although in saying that there's nothing outstanding or new here either. Rob Lowe makes this worth watching however and I enjoyed the beginning where he's an out of work struggling author who ends up digging ditches to support his family. After he hits the big time and is out on his endless book tour with his new ego and groupies it got a bit meh. The angel/conscience character was interesting but never fleshed out so that you're left saying what!? 12.24.13 "Holiday drama about a budding author (Rob Lowe) whose first book becomes a blockbuster. As fame and fortune go to is head, he begins to neglect his family and soon receives visits from a mysterious stranger." Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Le gentil petit mari qui devient célèbre, qui perd la tête, délaisse sa famille et ses amis, jusqu'au dur réveil... L'agent Prentiss de Criminal Minds en épouse éplorée, assez inhabituel mais pas mal. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member shitty plot but HELLO worth it just to watch Rob Lowe Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
