PURCHASED THIS TO WATCH WHILE TRAVELING FOR WORK. I REALLY ENJOYED BEING TAKEN BACK TO A TIME WHEN TV WAS ENJOYABLE. I LOVED ALL OF THE CHARACTERS AS A CHILD AND FIND THAT I'M STILL A FAN. LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING SEASON 2.
THIS IS MY FAV XMAS MOVIE----IT IS FUNNY AND SO ENTERTAINING. ALL THE ACTORS ARE FANTASTIC, THE STORY IS A GREAT ONE---JUST WISH THEY WOULD MAKE IT IN COLOR LIKE \"HOLIDAY INN\" WITH FRED ASTAIRE. I WATCH IT EVERY DAY DURING DECEMBER!! I BOUGHT 3 MORE DVD'S OF THIS MOVIE FOR MY FRIENDS FOR XMAS!!
This DVD contains some of my favorite holiday movies and the many classic holiday movies that every family should have in their movie collection. I have these movies - along with many other classic holiday movies from a bygone era - playing daily in my home throughout the Christmas season. The warmth of a roaring fireplace, the hot afterglow of a fine cognac, and the nostalgia of a classic holiday movie - what could possibly be better at Christmas! These movies invoke a wonderful time of pure class and carefree innocence, something the modern movies just can't seem to replicate. Go back to a simpler time and enjoy this wonderful movie!
Third writer-director effort of Preston Sturges [from a story by Monckton Hoffe] is laugh entertainment of top proportions with its combo of slick situations, spontaneous dialog and a few slapstick falls tossed in for good measure.
