Do you need a couple of holiday movies to watch? I love Christmas movies and watch them one after the other. I usually have to watch them on my laptop with my headphones on because my husband and son are watching their own shows. But that's ok!! I have just finished watching two great movies from Cinedigm. They are 'Christmas Trade' and 'Christmas Tail'.
This was a fun, family movie that I enjoyed and had some laughs while watching. There was room for improvement in the acting, but I personally found it enjoyable. I watched it by myself, but it is a family movie that you could enjoy with your whole family. I love Tom Arnold, so will usually watch about anything he is in.
Some information on the movie...
Mitch Taylor, is a workaholic attorney and widowed dad to a 12 year-old son, Robbie. Lately, Mitch is in way over his head, trying to be a dad, please his hard edged boss and make partner, while juggling an impatient girlfriend.
His son Robbie has problems of his own. The school bully has made Robbie his latest target, he is trying not to be a total nerd in front of the girl he likes, and to make things worse, he was cast as lead role in the Christmas Pageant unwillingly. Robbie really want his dad to go out of his way this year to make Christmas all it s cracked up to be.

The second movie I got to watched was 'Christmas Tail'. The story was cute and showed a family that came together over their furry friend. I also watched this one by myself, but it is a safe, family friendly movie. I will probably watch it again with Aiden because he loves dogs and I think he will enjoy it.
Some information on the movie...
Two single parents fall in love while “splitting custody” over a puppy that both had wanted to give to their children for Christmas.
Single mom Maggie has sworn off dating. Jack, also a single parent, gives his daughter Olivia a Labrador retriever named Bear for Christmas. Maggie’s son Ethan also wants a dog for Christmas, so she visits the local dog pound the day after Bear ends up at the pound after chasing a cat and adopts him. Meanwhile, Jack arranges for a local TV host to mention his missing dog on her show and Maggie recognizes him. Bear is clearly depressed without Maggie around, so Jack and Maggie decide to “split custody.” Jack and Maggie end up spending a lot of time together “for the dog” and fall in love.
