It's the time of year when we get all warm and fuzzy, evoking family and generosity and love and goodwill.
Because it's a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie "November Christmas" (CBS, 9 tonight) makes sure all of those elements are present. As a consequence, you'll need to have your hanky nearby because the movie will prompt the season's first weepy moment.
It makes sense that the film stars Sam Elliott, that laconic, handsome actor who plays a cowboy whether he's playing a cowboy or not (here, he's an organic farmer), because it ambles in that same laid-back way Elliott always does. Honestly, it was about 40 minutes in (and I watched without commercials) before something actually happened and it became clear what all that I'd watched meant.
