New Family Film: All I Want is Christmas Now on Video On Demand (Giveaway)

by Jennifer Sikora

November 1st. To me, this is the day I dig through movies and music and pull out all my holiday themed family entertainment. It’s been hard not to already pull them out and begin my holiday tradition, but I have held off and waited — until now.

I am SO ready for the holidays.

I love the twinkling lights, the yummy food my family and I make, but more than that, the holidays mean family to me. Being together, watching movies, loving on one another. That is what the holidays do for me!

There is a new family film coming out today on VOD (video on demand) that I cannot wait to tell you about — All I Want is Christmas.

SYNOPSIS:

Ira J. Finkelstein is obsessed with Christmas. He’s seen every Christmas movie ever made and his dreams are filled with reindeer, sleigh rides and SNOW. The problem? Ira’s Jewish – and at 11 years old, Christmas is passing him by. When Ira’s hopes for a holiday vacation in Aspen are dashed, he hatches a plan to finally get the Christmas of his dreams. Flying unaccompanied to visit his grandparents in Florida, he swaps tickets with Mikey, another 11-year-old on his way to Christmastown, WA . Ira gets more than he bargained for when he experiences his first “White Christmas”.

This film is filled with well known actors and actresses that you might recognize!

  • Max Finkelstein – David DeLuise (Wizards of Waverly Place, Jesse, Stargate)
  • Sam Finkelstein – Elliott Gould (Contagion, Oceans 13, Mash)
  • Libby Wilson – Cynthia Geary (Northern Exposure)
  • Ira Finkelstein – Elijah Nelson (Trainmaster)
  • Mikey Amato – Justin Howell
  • Clare Wilson – Shaye Hodgins

My Thoughts on the movie:

I love good, clean, family-friendly movies, and this one fit the bill perfectly. It was light hearted, and I could totally relate to Ira because I LOVE Christmas as well. After seeing this movie, I totally want to visit Christmastown myself!
