Quotes

Rachel Tripp: Don't worry. One way or another, it's gonna work out. Okay?
Britney King: Easy for you to say. If it doesn't, you're just sitting there with my body with all my stuff.
Rachel Tripp: You wanna know the truth? I'd give it all back in a moment. It's just stuff.
Britney King: Oh, yeah, right!
Rachel Tripp: I don't care about your stuff. My whole life, I've dreamt of having parents. And now I've got them, it's like they don't even know I exist.
Britney King: It only took you a day to see that, huh?

Great Movie
8 August 2016 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA.

If you don't know the general story of this film then take my word for it just watch it. The less you know the better. That is how I viewed it.

I have seen about 40 films with a Holiday theme in the past 2 months and this one was very enjoyable. Now when it comes to Holiday theme films they seem to go "By the Numbers". This film does have that but if you put that aside you will enjoy the story because it takes a few twist & turns that I didn't see coming.

I really did love the story because there is a message about what true wealth is & what makes a family. Also the big message here is "Just because people treat you bad that doesn't mean you are not worthy of love".

The film is on LIFETIME but it is available on Amazon and it worth buying
