This is a sweet and funny underrated Christmas classic, which depicts everlasting kindness, compassion, charm, holiday cheer, romance, comedy, and family. McKeever is a homeless New Yorker who moves into the mansion of the wealthy Michael O’Conner and along the way he gathers friends to live with him. Before he knows it, he is living with the actual homeowners. Everyone in the house begins to bond together as a family. It is one of my favourite Christmas movies because it teaches us the value of friendship and love. I highly recommended this movie. 5/5. @janmarrow1225 of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
