    this movie was very uplifting, great to see how people where there for each other when they needed it. Great music, this movie was the theme of our Christmas float.

    This movie was well done and the actors that were used really fit thier character roles. The ending was not what I was

    expecting. Make sure you have plenty of tissues. This Christmas season, as the movie promotes, spend time with and cherish those you love. You never know what's around the corner of life.

    While I agree with the previous reviewer that this isn't a film you automatically watch over and over (even though I watched it 3x last year on TV), it is a great one for your Christmas collection and I definitely recommend it. The reminder from this film is that life isn't limited to snow snuggles, glittery angels, and warm cups of cocoa. This is one of those films that can recalibrate your Christmas mindset to include what matters beyond commercialism or working to afford it. Instead the focus is on community, learning to help the hurting, hoping beyond circumstances on earth, and finding that sometimes Christmas angels don't need glitter. It is a film that wouldn't have a story without the hope that is in Jesus and therefore Christmas. It is a film that most likely will leave you sad, and then you take a few deep breaths, maybe be compelled to pray for others, and then you are ready to move forward-- more in step with the very heart of Christmas.

    Christmas time is already approaching, I mean you can see it in the TV commercials so it MUST be true! Lol. Anyway, I wrote a blog entry not too long ago about the Three Types of Christmas movies, which I recommend you read when you have the time, and I started thinking about Christmas movies. At one point I even thought: "I should do research and see if there are more Christian Christmas films out there..." One day I went to my local Family Video and saw they had The Heart of Christmas available, and so I had some hopes on this being a really good and hopefully real Christmas film.

    The Heart of Christmas, is a story about a busy business mom whose kids and husband don't feel like they see or spend time with her enough. This mom barely manages to go trick or treat with her kids and when she does, she uncovers a house with Christmas decorations. She asks "why the early decorations?", and a local hands her a business card and replies: "read this blog and you'll understand." So she starts reading the story of a boy named Dax and the painful journey his parents are making for him... The acting was very good from all the cast members, the quality and script were quite original, and the song by Matthew West is awesome! But, what I am about to write might sound heartless to some people and I apologize for that in advance. It is not my intent to be a jerk, however I feel this needs to be said.

    The Heart of Christmas is misleading, because this is not a conventional Christmas film like you may imagine when observing the movie's cover appearance and the title itself. So if you're hoping for a movie which heavily relates to the Christmas season, and with which you can laugh/enjoy beside the whole family, this isn't it. No, The Heart of Christmas is a very painful journey through the lives of a group of parents whose child is fighting off cancer. I get the idea that you're supposed to see this film and then say to yourself: "Wow... I could have it a whole lot worse. I should be grateful of what I have." However, I felt it was unnecessary for that to be most of the movie itself, because I can't imagine this being a film I can watch again and again and again. Basically, no disrespect intended, this movie was designed to be emotional porn meant to make you cry. (I am not misusing that word, look it up.) Though this is a necessary message for some people to hear, because there are a lot of ungrateful people out there and we also have to be realistic in that Christmas isn't always full of smiles and giggles, it doesn't really talk about WHY Christmas is even worth celebrating; it just hints Dax "just needs one last happy moment" with his family. I won't discourage you from watching/purchasing the movie, because there are somethings within the movie I felt are worth seeing especially if you haven't experienced Cancer for yourself, but I won't be adding it to my library; I'm sorry if that sounds heartless.

    p.s. Please don't misunderstand my words. I take what they produced very seriously and my heart goes out to all children, especially the children involved apart of that kind of situation. I just can't watch a movie like this again and again and again, because this will emotionally shock you just as certain horror films are designed to emotionally shock you; hence why I called this 'emotional porn.' Also keep in mind I would rather watch this than many of the Holiday Fluff films being currently released like Kung Fu Panda Holiday Special.
