Over the years I have seen a certain Christmas movie advertised again and again, but every year Ipassed it up. Not this year!
This is that movie. There was no reason for me to not watch it, I just kept putting it off. Today I want to share with you movie review number four – Mrs. Miracle
–Hallmark Christmas Movie –
–About the movie– A frazzled widower hires a nanny to rein in his rambunctious twins. Mrs. Miracle, as she’s dubbed by the kids, has a profound effect on the boys and also lends her magic to their dad, who needs some help of his own. (Rotton Tomatoes)
–Cast– James Van Der Beek as Seth Webster, Doris Roberts as Mrs. Merkle, Erin Karpluk as Reba Maxwell, Michael Strusievici as Judd Webster and Valin Shinyei as Jason Webster.
–My Review– Mrs. Miracle opens with a stream of nanny’s and baby sitters pretty much rushing out of the home of Seth Webster as his six-year-old twins are twin terrors. Since Seth is a widower, he is in absolute need of a nanny and he is nearing the end of the employment agency’s roster. Fortunately Mrs. Miracle makes an appearance and truly does save the day. She is sweet and kind but not one to take any garbage either. She brings something special to the Webster home that has been desperately needed. I loved that Mrs. Miracle wasn’t sticky sweet and although you know that this is a Christmas movie and all will end well, it wasn’t forced. There is a strong theme of forgiveness and also letting go. If you have avoided watching Mrs. Miracle because you thought it might be corny, go for it. You will be pleasantly surprised. Mrs. Miracle is a movie I would watch with the whole family but it isn’t maybe for really young children. There are hurts in both adults’ pasts that could be a little over their heads.
You can catch Mrs. Miracle on Tuesday, December 17th at 3:oo pm/ 2:00 pm c
