3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable
No it's not a masterpiece but it's enjoyable enough and the "twist" works!

The Christmas Wish [DVD]

A good old-fashioned Christmas film incorporating forgiveness, mystery, Christmas spirit but with more substance than the usual Christmas film.

Well acted by Debbie Reynolds, who plays the grandmother, and Neil Patrick Harris her grandson Will. He returns to help look after the family business following the death of his grandfather and, over the build up to Christmas, he comes to understand the good effect that his grandfather had on the lives of the community.

They were, therefore, both surprised to find reference in his journals to regular contact that he had with a mysterious women called Lilian. Will's Christmas gift to his grandmother is to find out the identity of Lilian, with surprising results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your usual Christmas film!, 11 Nov. 2013
This review is from: The Christmas Wish [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
When Will Martin's grandfather dies he returns home to take care of the family business. When his grandmother confesses that she read his late grandfather's journals she tells Will that her Christmas wish is to find the identity of a woman named Lillian.

This is by far not your average Christmas film to start with it has way more substance. It contains mystery and the power of forgiveness with just the right amount of Christmas spirit. It's a touching film that shows you it's not all about money sometimes the best thing is the giving. This film is bound to touch even the coldest of people. The ending was surprising; a wonderful twist to an already amazing film. The best Christmas film I've ever seen.

A pleasant Chistmas film and , nice story with Harris as the son ( " Was well known as " Dougie Howser " in days past) and a welcome return to one, who as a youth, I had a crush on, the lovely Debbie Reynolds.
I have the film on Disc but the DVD will add to the enjoyment.
