You may consider your luck to have run out when spending time watching this movie. Nothing is more important than honesty; yet sacrificing honesty and helping a friend who steals a car, appropriates contents, and wants to claim a lottery ticket (if possible) is excused. Nice guys make mistakes and true love is found with a lottery winner. Lonely boy finds suitable father-replacement figure who can skate and build a derby car and give advice about winning a bully over with kindness. Norman Rockwellesque home -- replete with parent-grandparentesque caring, wise landlords -- is Christmas-card-worthy backdrop. The true Christmas miracle is that people have rated this movie five stars -- or, for that matter, anything above one star.
