Daily Telegraph (UK)
George Bailey's everyman charm reminds us that it doesn't take a war to make a hero.
Rating: A+ -- A movie people will have a good time watching with their families for enduring decades. Full Review
...With the power to melt the coldest of hearts. James Stewart gives a flawless performance...
Paralyzing joys are the very heart of George Bailey's dilemma; they are, to borrow words from George's father, "deep in the race." Full Review
The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Rating: 2/5 -- One problem with the film is that it's only in the acquisition of money and the community subjugating their own savings and needs for George, that his rebirth can be complete. Full Review
Rating: 4/4 -- The most well-loved of all Christmas movies. Full Review
A good but slightly ineffectual man tries to off himself after an error that really wasn't his fault. In Christmas Carol fashion, his crusty-but-lovable guardian angel shows up to give him a tour of the world without his presence, and it isn't a pretty place. Moral courage, small-town American life, civic cooperation, and family love are glorified; corporate greed and self-involvement are vilified; at the climax, a blanket of snow like spun sugar makes everything pure and clean like redemption itself.
