It's a Wonderful Life is about hunger. It's about greed. It's about the many ways a good man is stymied. Finally, it's about George Bailey, whose decency prevents him even from killing himself. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/4 -- While it isn't the best picture to come out of Hollywood this year, nor is it Capra's masterpiece, it tells a good story and its conclusion has a heart-warming effect on the audience. Full Review
New York Daily News
Rating: A+ -- It's just such a joyous picture. Full Review
The inspirational, thoroughly festive ending is guaranteed to bring tears to the eyes. Full Review
Daily Telegraph (UK)
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)
...With the power to melt the coldest of hearts. James Stewart gives a flawless performance...
George Bailey's everyman charm reminds us that it doesn't take a war to make a hero.
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.
