Two lawyers don’t get along at all. But their siblings have met and married and are now expecting a child at Christmas. So off to New York they trek to try to make peace and offer their support for the birth. But when they arrive, they find out that their siblings are in deep financial trouble. He has lost his job and the bank is going to foreclose on their house. To top it off, one of them is working for the law firm whose client is foreclosing the houses to purchase the property for high rise buildings. To make matters worse, the mother to be is having health issue that could risk the delivery and herself. All have to come together despite their rocky relationship.

This Hallmark film has been released for Christmas 2012 and perhaps is one of the weakest. It’s not a bad film, and there is a lot of tension between the son and his father that needs to be resolved. Perhaps he is an overachiever due to the neglect by his father. But this is probably the best relationship in the film. The relationship between the two stars is rather contrived, and not very believable to me. The go through the motions, but there’s not a whole lot to latch on to here. The suspense of the baby’s delivery is not really that suspenseful, really. It’s pretty obvious that hospitals today can take care of these kids of problems every day. There is a little girl for the cute factor, older daughter of the expecting parents, but she’s not really given much to do either. Basically, this film is rather ho-hum, and never really gets rolling. It’s okay to pass the time, but not really worth searching for. Skip it unless you’re bored and there’s nothing else to watch.

Here is the link to the Hallmark web page for this film.
