Pete's Christmas

Starring: Bailee Madison, Zachary Gordon, Bruce Dern, Molly Parker
Plot Synopsis: At fourteen, Pete Kidder is sick of being the middle child in his family, always overlooked by his parents. Unlike his brothers, jock Jake, and bookworm Kenny, Pete hasn’t yet developed a distinct personality that sets him apart, and he often feels left out. With the kids’ grumpy grandfather unexpectedly in town for Christmas, the pressure is on to make the day as great as Grandpa remembers with his late wife, but the holiday is filled with disastrous moments, including a toppling Christmas tree and a bout with food poisoning. Just when things can’t get any worse, Pete wakes up the next day and realizes he’s reliving December 25th all over again. Stuck repeating the day over and over, Pete panics, but slowly realizes, with the help of his new friend and next door neighbor, Katie, that he can use his unique gift for good and give this Christmas day the do-over it deserves

Its sort of like the movie Ground Hog's day, but with this..a lot of Christmas. What if you had to live Christmas day over and over again before you could get it right? This family movie gives you a lot to think about. And I really did enjoy the meaning of this movie. It might be the best Christmas movie I've seen in a very long time.
