It is about 3 mental patients who participate in a Christmas Play
11 June 2011 | by immerry2See all my reviews

I loved this movie. It has a wonderful ending. I was unable to view it on TV because I was attending a meeting for parent's with troubled teenagers, so I recorded the movie to watch later. I watched it once but forgot to take it out of the VCR and accidentally recorded over it. I would love to see this excellent Christmas Movie again. I can't believe that it has not been made into a DVD for Christmas viewing of so many people who have not been able to watch it. Nor has it been shown again on TV. I would love to see it again.Please tell me that there is a way I can see this wonderful movie with Lou Diamond Phillips, one of my favorite actors again. I am confined to bed and one of my few pleasures is watching TV or DVD's.

This movie is about 3 mental patients who play 3 kings in a Christmas Pageant. They ride real camels who run away with them on a wild trip through the city until they finally meet a pregnant woman needing help.
