Holiday for Love, A (1996) (TV)

Melissa Gilbert and Tim Matheson are terrific together. They have a strong chemistry on screen. I also love Noel, the daughter, and all the cast. This is such a wonderful, inspiring, homey, family oriented movie. I hope strongly they make a video. I want it so badly.

No-brainer Christmas tale.

'Christmas in my Hometown' is standard Lifetime TV holiday fare. Tim Matheson plays a well-meaning, but out-of-touch business executive at a tractor manufacturing company to one of its factories in Athens, Nebraska to determine whom to fire as part of the company's plans to downsize. The small, good-natured town (which surprisingly (or not) has zero minorities) of course, relies on the factory to support their families, as well as the life of the town itself. Posing as a representative from a farming company needing to fill tractor orders, he gains the trust of the town and in particular, a woman (Melissa Gilbert) and her young daughter who buys his story, trusts him, and then, along with the whole town, shuns him when they find out that he might be cutting their job.

Filled with lots of sentimental tripe, it is predictable family entertainment from beginning to end, and interchangeable as far as Lifetime TV holiday movies go. But, nonetheless, it is an innocuous little distraction when you just need to put up your feet and watch a movie that might make you smile a bit during the holidays.

Watchable Film With a Cast that Can deliver

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY REVIEW ONE FILM. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THAT PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 Christmas MOVIES. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM FARE ABOUT THESE FILMS.

"Christmas films" get the short end of the stick when it comes to getting critical acclaim. This film doesn't help the case that these films are "Predictable" but what this films does have is charm to spare.

In this warm holiday drama an executive forced to cut the jobs of many people working at a small-town tractor factory gets a big surprise when he's mistaken as the savior of the local economy. Melissa Gilbert, Tim Matheson, Travis Tritt, Michelle Trachtenberg star. AKA: "Christmas in My Hometown."

The film does Emphasize "Faith" "Hope" "Loyality" "Love" "Forgiveness" "2nd Chances" and "Family"

This film is family safe but mainly adults over 30 will enjoy this most.

This was enjoyable. If you come across it watch it.
