I like to be happy and jolly at Christmas not sad. I know that there is sadness in the world but, I deal with the sadness all year, I'm not doing it at Christmas.

Thats the good thing about films and people in general everyone has a different opinion on it.

No one is gonna hate you becuse you dont like it, everyone is different.

It is really sad at time so I see why you might not like it

I knew someone, once who wouldnīt watch any movies that didnīt have a happy end...for example...she never saw the Titanic movie with Leo and Kate...because he dies at the end...

I can understand it to some extend....We see bad things on the news and in the streets everyday...why watch something sad...when we can choose for a comedy or something like that.

I personally like sad movies, too...but sometimes...I canīt cope with it and settle for something funny or cute

I enjoyed the film, although it does make me cry whenever I see it.

how is it when the kids are on stage....are You more exited and nervous than when You are on stage? I know that from Sports coaches...Marion Jones (former world class sprinter...now a bit disgraced but still my girl) that she was much more nervous when her girls basketball team she coached played than when she was on the track

to the question: I havenīt seen this flick yet...but I will try to find it somewhere to watch it!!!
yeah track, i used to teach drama, i don't now because i am acting myself but i enjoyed it whilst it lasted! we put a play of the christmas shoes on last december, my young cousin was the lead role and he was fantastic! all my kids were, but he stood out! yeah, i was FAR more nervous watching them than when i was on stage because you have no control of it.

My first choice when it comes to movies will always be a comedy! I'm funny by nature. Or atleast that's what people tell me! I'll even choose a romantic comedy as well. I don't avoid sad movies just ones that are sad at Christmas time. To tell you the truth if it wasn't for me hearing that Christmas Shoes song I probably, maybe would have given it a chance. I just can't get past that dumb song and I saw a video for the song too! That pretty much sums up the movie right there so there's no need for me to torture myself by watching the movie. I saw Titanic and it was long! It was an ok movie although I don't like Leo DiCaprio and that theme song sung by Celine Dion was played to death! It was ok though even though it was sad. I just won't watch a sad Christmas movie.
