      This is such a great movie! I watched it last christmas with my family. It is about a man named George Bailey. As he grows up, he continually shows incredible selflessness in order to help others. Instead of pursuing his own dreams of traveling the world, he stays at home to run the lowly building and loan alongside his forgetful uncle. He becomes the only business to hold out against the villanous Mr. Potter. As time goes by, Uncle Billy goes to the bank to deposite a large sum of $8,000. However, he meets Mr. Potter there and accidentaly gives him the check. Unfortunately, he can't remember where he left the money and goes home to tell George. Because this would cause them to go bankrupt, George goes off to a bar and gets drunk, crashes his car into a tree, and weaves his way around the town until he finds himself at a bridge. At this point, he has become really depressed because his life seems to be really terrible, so he seriously considers jumping off the bridge to comit suicide. However, God has sent and angel named Clarence to go down to set his life right again. Clarence jumps off of the bridge before George does, so George jumps in, to try to save him. George pulls Clarence out and Clarnce begins to tell George all about him being an angel. At first, George thinks that he i going crazy, but soon comes to accept that. He tells Clarence that eveyone would be better off if he had never been born. Clarence then takes him into a world where there is no George Baily. George realizes how important he was in the towna and begs Clarence to take him back. When George returns, he is overjoyed to see everyone he meets on his way home. In the end, all of the residents of the town come together and pool their extra money to save George and the building and loan. I definitely recommend this movie to everyone, as it has such an amazing story and lesoon. Do not take life for granted. Each person is important in so many ways. It really is a wonderful life.

        I was in tears and couldn't stop crying. What a difference just one person makes in so many people's lives.

          Best movie for Christmas ever! Even though it's a bit old (my mom's favorite movie when she was small) I think it should receive an award!

            Who does not want to live? Who wants to die instead of experience defeat? One man, thinks everything is lost. An angel shows him what the world would be without him being born. The difference... was horrid!

                  It's really good. A great movie to watch like you said, during the holidays. The movie was really good. They should try to make a book with it.

                  I liked this movie because I was left in suspense. I knew there was an angel, but I didn't know what he would do. The best part was at the end when he got his life back. I felt really good and learned a lesson. Even though I thought it was a little slow in the beginning, the movie was really good overall.
