Parents need to know that Frank Capra's bittersweet, heartwarming movie is a Christmas classic. Tweens and teens will love it as an engaging story that takes on the human condition in all its complexity. While there's some dated behavior -- particularly in the way an African-American maid is treated -- there's also a beautiful message about how much each person means to the world. Expect some gunshots, a short fist-fight, and other scenes involving temper issues -- as well as the despair that drives George to consider ending his own life -- but overall this is a family-friendly pick for the holidays (or anytime!).November 16th, 2015 · Details
This one is definitely in my top 10 for Christmas classics. Jimmy Stewart pulls off one of his best performances. The overarching message of the movie: One man does make a difference, is a powerful reminder of the infinite value of every individual on Earth. Besides this the pacing, comedy, and dialogue are all excellently done. This is a must-see for anyone who needs to see an uplifting movie. Worth your families time.September 1st, 2011 · Details
A Christmas classic! Though the only thing Christmasy about it is that it ends at Christmastime, and is shown at Christmastime, it's a classic story of people in hard times wondering if it's all worth it. Beautiful film showing our impact on the world around us.March 3rd, 2011 · Details
