    There's little point in critiquing the acting other than to say this isn't a production that will embellish anyone's list of credits. Nearly everyone here is a caricature trying to make the best of a miniseries that is all about the special effects.

    Despite its pedigree as a "Hallmark Hall of Fame" presentation, "Silver Bells" is only slightly more sophisticated than an after-school special.

    This depiction of John Paul II as half human, half saint -- though hardly unexpected and possibly even warranted -- leaves us with a character that is less dimensional and less relatable and, consequently, less interesting.

    Maybe this show would be more compelling if the Donnellys were a little less black and a little more gray.
