One of the new Christmas on TV movies for 2010, this film is really good.  It’s the story of a well off family on their way to a resort waiting with lots of presents and plans in Colorado who get stranded in some very bad weather out in the mountains.  They’re in the middle of Nowhere.  Now I capitalize this because it is literally the town of Nowhere.   Nowhere was a mining town, but the mines have closed, and most everyone has moved away.  Those that are left are in dire straits.  Well the family’s car has broken down and it’s going to take a couple days to bus in the parts to fix it.  Meanwhile the Mayor’s wife is hell bent on holding an annual Christmas Pageant on Christmas Eve and her husband is convinced they can’t afford it.  First, hating the town for it’s laid back, nothing to do, no TV no cell phone service, the family begins to make some friend and to empathize with the situation the people of Nowhere are in.  Will the pageant go on?  Will it matter?

This is a rather new story, somewhat different that what we’ve seen before and it’s a lot of fun but has a lot of good principles and feel good moments as well.  This is a refreshing change from the old films we’ve seen over and over and it’s nice to have a brand new Christmas story for 2010.  I liked it.

    This has got to be the worst Christmas movie ever! I look forward to the new Christmas films every year but this was so low budget and the acting was terrible.

    I hear you. I understand that it’s a TV movie, so there’s not much budget for it, and that does make things like special effects and such pretty cheesy, but I gather that you’re a Christmas Movie fan, so you’re probably used to watching TV Movies. I enjoyed the film, as I said in the review, but I can see how it might not work for some folk. Thanks for sending your opinion, and I respect it. Anytime you’d like to comment, I’m always open to differences of opinions. There are so many films to choose from, it’s hard to keep them all straight! 🙂 –Ed
