Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
I know this film is highly rated and loved by many, but I thought it was just ok – perhaps because I watched it as a cynical adult. When this movie was originally released I was a child and not allowed to see it (we attended to an ultra religious church who declared it a blasphemous attack on Christmas). Now that I’m older and far, far removed from anyone making decisions for me, I watched this movie a few weeks ago for the first time. I guess I was expecting more. I think this film and I missed our moment.
Final Grade: C
