This is really a beautiful movie. It's dark, but deep down it tells a great story about a bad guy turning good for a kid around Christmas.

Some of the dialog, one liners are the funniest I have ever heard in a Christmas movie. "I beat the s*** out of some kids today... Made me feel pretty good about myself."

The movie features one of the last roles of John Ritter, who just kind of disappears from the movie half way through. I grew up watching John on Three's Company, so he helps add the classic to this MUST SEE Christmas flick.
