Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I have waited years for this movie to be released on DVD as it was filmed in my home town. It's a great movie with a great cast and I was surprised it took so long to be released. I was also surprised that the movie wasn't offered on TV as part of the Christmas season because it's a wonderful story about a father's last Christmas. I checked other sites to purchase it and found their price was several times more than the price offered by Walmart. Not only did I receive a great value but it was shipped in a timely fashion as promised.
