Angels Sing is a heartwarming and family-friendly holiday movie released in 2013, directed by Tim McCanlies. The story revolves around Michael Walker (played by Harry Connick Jr.), a man who has lost his Christmas spirit after an unfortunate incident during the holiday season. He lives in Austin, Texas along with his wife Susan (played by Connie Britton) and their young son David (played by Chandler Canterbury).

The movie begins with a flashback scene of a young Michael, who is with his father picking out a Christmas tree. His father was involved in a car accident while driving home, and Michael feels responsible for the accident because he asked his father to take a different way home. Since then, Michael develops a dislike for Christmas and anything related to it.

Fast forward several years, Michael is now all grown up and has a family of his own. However, he completely avoids celebrating Christmas and refuses to decorate their house for the holiday season. He even goes to the extent of trying to bribe his neighbor with money to turn down the volume of their Christmas carols.

One day, Michael meets Nick (played by Willie Nelson), a mysterious man who appears out of nowhere and offers him a train set for his son. For some reason, Nick knows quite a bit about Michael's past, and he tells him that he can help him regain his Christmas spirit. Michael finds Nick to be a bit strange but takes his advice and starts to embrace Christmas once again.

Michael's journey to regain his love for Christmas begins when he becomes friends with his new neighbor, who is a schoolteacher and also a singer. Her name is Sally (played by Lyle Lovett), and she convinces Michael to join the neighborhood choir. Michael reluctantly agrees and finds himself singing Christmas carols and learning about the holiday season once again.

As Michael begins to connect with his community and gets involved in their holiday traditions, he slowly starts to regain his love for Christmas. Meanwhile, at home, his son David builds an elaborate display of Christmas lights and decorations in their front yard as a way to bring his family together during the holiday season.

But just as everything seems to be going well, the unexpected happens. Michael experiences a setback that threatens to ruin his newfound Christmas spirit. But with the help of Nick and his loved ones, Michael overcomes the obstacles and learns what the true meaning of Christmas is all about.

The movie features some great performances from the cast, especially Harry Connick Jr. His portrayal of Michael is relatable and believable, and the chemistry between him and Connie Britton (as Susan) is natural and heartwarming. Chandler Canterbury's portrayal of Michael's son, David, is also quite charming and adds a bit of innocence and fun to the movie. Willie Nelson's brief appearance as Nick adds an extra level of depth to the story, making it more magical and enchanting.

Overall, Angels Sing is a delightful holiday movie that is sure to put the viewers in the Christmas spirit. It is a movie that emphasizes the importance of family, community, and the joys of the holiday season. The movie is kid-friendly, and the message it delivers is uplifting and positive without being overly preachy. It's a must-watch for anyone who loves holiday movies and wants to experience a heartwarming story that reminds us of what the holidays are all about.
