About the DVD: It's Christmas break at the McDonald house, but silent nights—and days—are nowhere to be found. With the children's constant bickering, pretty packages and a sweet-smelling tree don't come close to filling the McDonald home with the true spirit of the first Christmas. Then Mom remembers an old tradition of building a soft bed for Baby Jesus one straw at a time. Each time someone secretly does something nice for another family member, he or she gets to add a single straw to the manger. Soon the children's quarreling and negative feelings subside and the homemade crib is overflowing. But for one family member, a required act of kindness becomes more than he can take. Inspired by a true story and filled with both heart and humor, The Last Straw may forever change the way your family celebrates Christmas.
My Review: I don't know about you, but Christmas is my favorite holiday and I LOVE watching Christmas movies. Our family has so many that last year we didn't even get around to watching all of them. We have a plan this year though, we're going to start watching them right away. This is one of those movies that you will want to add to your list of Christmas movies you watch every year. This movie is so cute! I loved how the family seems like a normal family, the kids even fight just like ours do. I loved how the mom was pretty much at the end of her rope and then she saw a Nativity set and she knew exactly what to do to help her kids get more of the Christmas spirit and not fight as much. This movie is filled with humor, love, laughter and Christmas spirit. The end brought tears to my eyes. My whole family loved it and our middle daughter asked to watch it again right away, not something she normally would do. I love that it is a movie that you can watch with your whole family. Make sure to make time to watch this great movie!
