“The Christmas Card,” is a gem in the genre of family Christmas films. Unlike most family-friendly Christmas films, there truly is something for everyone and not just something for the women. Cody Cullins is ordered to take a break from his tour-of-duty overseas after tragedy strikes and he inadvertently finds a new family. The film is sympathetic with current events, dealing with service men and women in a way that is sensitive to those affected by deployed service members. Ed Asner and Peter Jason give cannot-miss performances.
This film receives our seal as it has very little objectionable material. Early in the film is a simulated battle scene with no blood but it could be disagreeable to those with loved ones overseas. There were a few scenes with kissing but overall, this film was incredibly family-friendly. Gather the family around for this one.
