What a lucky couple!  She’s a doctor and he’s a lawyer.  They’re a perfect couple.  Except she’s a bit old fashioned and a small town girl.  When he presents here with a ring just before Christmas, she insists they take the long drive home to Pine Gap to officially ask her father for his blessings.    Well, that’s not likely to go well.   They’re ranchers and he’s a tenderfoot.  And Sadie’s got brothers who don’t like sister’s new guy.  But that’s nothing like the hatred Dad instantly has for this for this guy.   Plus it’s worrisome that she forgot to mention her high school sweetheart who’s still carrying the torch for Sadie.   James is going to have his hands full trying to convince the family he’s a good guy, and it truly seems he’s not going to make it.   Even the dog hates him!  I mean, even Sally Struthers is trying to destroy him.  Trouble is that everyone loves the old boyfriend.

This is a very funny but heartwarming film.   It’s a really good story and is very rich and full.  No boring parts, and the pacing is excellent.  This one is well worth watching.  Very well done Christmas flick about acceptance and understanding.  Maybe they can even learn to get along.
