Review

Our Score
The original Waltons cast members are back for this heart-warming TV film, the first in a round of reunion movies based on the Emmy Award-winning series that ran from 1972-81. In 1963, the close-knit Virginia family gathers together to celebrate Thanksgiving at the old homestead. Their own personal problems are soon put on hold as the clan reacts to the assassination of President Kennedy, whose death changes the lives of many in the family. If you're not a fan of the popular series then there is no reason to sit through this one, but if you are, then there is fun to be had in seeing the familiar faces all grown up. Richard Thomas effectively reprises his role as John-Boy as do Ralph Waite and Michael Learned as Ma and Pa Walton. Although at times mawkish and obvious, it's all quite harmless, as holiday fare should be.

Summary

The family battles a host of personal and romantic problems at a gathering in celebration of Thanksgiving, but also takes advantage of the holiday as an ideal chance to draw strength from one another. Drama based on the TV series, starring Richard Thomas, Ralph Waite, Michael Learned and Ellen Corby.
