Shoelaces for Christmas (2018) Reviews

  • Sweet movie, some nice things, and some unrealistic things.


    The film had much too quick of an arc for the main character, and the chemotherapy of the mom is hardly presented realistically, but other than that some nice things. I love love love love the opening. Nice images. Beautiful images. This is a nice family movie with some very nice messages. The spirit is extremely strong. Like with most movies the arc of the main character was too good to be true and happened much too quickly. Two visits to the homeless shelter and she is suddenly cured of her selfishness. I would have been more realistic to have the movie begin at the end of the previous school year and have a montage show her work at the homeless shelter over the course of the summer. I also thought that it was unrealistic that her dad was expecting her to work every day at the homeless shelter, help with housework, and do her regular school work and activities. It is why it would have made more sense to show Jennifer putting her whole heart into the homeless shelter over the summer and not have it possibly be affecting her school work. It is also hard to imagine a character that has been so "clueless" of her mother's illness. However, when my mom was ill with cancer and undergoing chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation I was pretty inattentive. Unlike me however the character does come around - albeit unrealistically. Hair and makeup people - how does the mom who has just completed chemotherapy have obviously. long hair???!! Granted, some lucky few don't lose their hair - but if that is the case then why is the mom wearing a hat - the kind of hat that many use during and after chemo to cover a hairless scalp or hair just beginning to grow back scalp???!!! You did do a fair job of making her look pale. If you were going for true realism eyebrows and eyelashes would be also lacking. Film wise that is understandable, but please if she has just had chemo then HIDE the actress's hair under the cap rather than showing half of it!!!! The movie has a strong spirit and makes you feel good. I loved Yolanda Stanger in the role of the homeless shelter director. The movie made me want to be best friends with both the character and the actress. I'm curious though why that in her other films that she is listed as Yolanda Wood. I could tell that she looked familiar and had to look for her. Ivey Lloyd Mitchell does an amazing job as Charlotte the mother of the young homeless girl, and her I assume real daughter Summer does very well in the role of the young girl Chloe. Ivey has done precious little film since her amazing job as a young teen portraying Bonnie in the 1993 family film "Rigoletto." I hope that we will now see more of her. If you want a feel good Christmas movie with the romance only as a sub theme and service as the main theme - although somewhat unrealistic - please don't miss this film!

  • Cute story, could have been better


    While the idea of a simple gift could have made a wonderful plot line, either the director or the screenwriter(s) dropped the ball on this one. The main character was plunged too quickly from horrible selfish girl to loving girl, there is no real transition - it was too forced. After noticing that it was written by two guys, that explains a lot as there was no real sense of the depth in the lead character.
