Reviews - What do customers think about The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey?
if you love the book, you will appreciate the movie Feb 11, 2010
This is one of our favorite Christmas stories. The main actors capture the characters from the story well. The poignancy and transformation in the book come through in the movie.
The Christmas miracle of Jonathan Toomey Jan 17, 2010
An excellent family Christmas film. The "judge not that ye be not judged" principle is very evident, also a touching storyline involving the simple youthful perspective of right and wrong.
Horrible! Dec 26, 2009
This movie was BAD. Leonard Pinth-Garnell bad. I had to eject it after forty-five minutes. The acting was dreadful! In fact, everything about the movie was dreadful.
Movie So-so; Arrived in Good Condition Jan 7, 2009
The movie arrived in a timely fashion and in good condition. The movie itself was not as great as some of the reviews indicated. First, Jonathan's "miracle" was not much of one. There is an implication that he went to church, but there is no personal confession of faith from his lips and neither does he repent for his lack of trust of God or the time He has spent disobeying him by keeping to himself without serving Him and forsaking the assembling together of the saints as the book of Hebrews forbids. The end is abrupt and leaves you feeling a bit unfulfilled, as if something more of a summation or conclusion was wanting.
Also, the son's bad attitude is not really dealt with much. The mother and son presumably have faith in God since the nativity set was so important to them, but there is not much evidence of same in how they act and interact throughout the movie.
Over all, the movie is family friendly, but I'd say some discernment should be used when watching with your kiddos and some poignant questions would be appropriate afterward to address what is wrong both spiritually, theologically and behaviorally. For example, "What should Mr. Toomey have done in response to losing his wife and child?" and "What comfort could the boy's mother have taken and given to her son in light of what happened?"
Great Family Movie! Dec 12, 2008
Save at least one night in the Christmas season to watch this movie with the whole family. It is worth the time!
