One of my favorite holiday traditions is sitting with my family and watching Christmas movies. I look forward to binge-watching all kinds of Christmas movies, but especially ones that I can watch with my kids. We recently watched Christmas All Over Again, one of our holiday gift guide picks, which will release to DVD on December 13th.
Sleigh bells will ring year-round when Christmas All Over Again arrives on DVD, On Demand, and Digital HD on December 13 from Lionsgate. Waking up to Christmas every morning may sound like a wonderful life, but what happens when there are no presents to wake up to? Earning the Dove Family Seal of approval, this heartwarming story brings new meaning to holiday cheer. Starring Sean Ryan Fox (TV’s “Henry Danger”), Amber Montana (TV’s “Haunted Hathaways”),Christy Carlson Romano (TV’s “Kim Possible”), and with Joey Lawrence.
It’s Christmas Eve, and teen Eddie (Sean Ryan Fox) hopes a sweet new pair of Breezy 3000 sneakers will catch the eye of neighbor girl Cindy (Amber Montana). But the next morning, the tree is empty — and every new day brings another Christmas without presents. To escape from this loop, Eddie turns to a mysterious shoe store owner (Joey Lawrence), who helps him understand that true joy doesn’t come tied up in a bow.
This is a cute film with the Dove Foundation family-friendly seal of approval (rated PG). It reminds me of Groundhog Day, where the main character re-lives the same day over and over again. Only this time it's a snarky teenage boy who only thinks about himself and has to re-live Christmas Day over and over again until he learns his lesson.
Joey Lawrence is one of my favorite actors and I absolutely loved him as the magical shoe store owner! (I don't think I have seen anything I haven't liked Joey Lawrence in) While the plot was pretty predictable, it has some great themes that your kids will learn from (without being too preachy) including thinking about others, family relationships, and what Christmas is truly about (not just about the presents). Your tweens and early teens will enjoy it, and maybe even your older teens will sit down and watch it with you.
Christmas All Over Again is fun family movie to get you in the holiday spirit!
