Christmas Jars Movie Review

In the movie, Christmas Jars Movie Review, I will say within the first few minutes I there are many triggers.  So please be aware that this could be a movie that can cause triggers within children who have abandonment issues, adoption, caring for a parent, etc.  That really is the first and foremost thing that I want to say.

Now, onto the rest of the review.  The acting is a bit novice but not horrible by any stretch of the imagination.  You can tell these are all budding actors and they really do a good job.

A bright note is that this is a clean movie!  No sex, booze, or drugs (as my mama would say).  I’m pleased about that aspect of it.  They focus on perseverance, hope, faith, and integrity.  The triggers prevent me from sharing this with a few of my children.  In time, though, we will be able to discuss it and move past those initial triggers.  My goal is to have them to watch it and receive the message of this movie.


Based on the beloved novel by Jason F. Wright, CHRISTMAS JARS shares the story of Hope Jensen, a reporter who uncovers the remarkable secret behind a holiday phenomenon: money-filled glass jars anonymously given to people in need. The New York Times bestseller has created a new holiday tradition that has changed the lives of people in their time of need, all over the country.

CHRISTMAS JARS is a one-night movie event that provides hope to all as we enter this special season. In theaters Monday, November 4 only, CHRISTMAS JARS is a heartfelt reminder that kindness truly is contagious.
