"Homeless for the Holidays" is a family friendly movie based on true events. I was provided a copy of this movie to review with no obligation.
There's really a demand for movies with Christian values that the whole family can watch. If you look at the reaction to movies like "Passion of the Christ" and "Facing the Giants", you can see that people want movies that reflect their values and tell great stories. Unfortunately, Hollywood doesn't usually do a good job at making those kind of movies. They are good at the lighting, audio, camera work, and acting but not at writing stories that reflect family values. Most Christian productions are good at reflecting the values, but not the technical aspects. Unfortunately, this movie is another example of that. "Homeless for the Holidays" is a heartwarming story, but it's very hard to tell past the bad writing, acting, lighting, video, and audio. Even allowing for the low budget, the movie was quite bad. I really wanted to like it, but I just didn't.
I sincerely hope the makers of this movie take what they've learned from this experience, get better, and try again, because we need more good family movies.
