Our Review:
I love watching this movie. I know that Christmas is just around the corner when IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE is playing on TV. I would watch it every time it is on. Although I love this movie, I am not sure why I never thought about picking up a copy. Now that we have kids, I am so glad we finally got a copy of this fantastic on Blu-ray. I am not sure if this movie will be too complex for DD to understand, but I am really looking forward to watching it with her before Christmas is here. Being 5 years old, DD is all about wanting Santa to bring her the latest toys. I want her to understand that instead of asking for gifts, the holiday season should be about quality time with friends and loved ones. IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE is a classic film about the life and the value of family and friends. This is a great movie to own and watch during the holiday season for sure. Although I could have easily watch it on TV when it gets aired, I am still glad to own this on Blu-ray. The picture quality is amazing and plus I don't have to watch all of the commercials -- that's a huge plus in my book. 

To buy this movie, please preorder it from Best Buy
