I should've wished for a sweater and you should've stayed in your store!
25 June 2002 | by (Montgomery, Alabama) – See all my reviews

Juliet Sorcey is awesome as Jessica in this marvelous Christmas flick. Olivia Newton-John is floppy but average as Amy, the mannequin turned Christmas mother. The guy who plays Jessica's father is cool and he's really good at the role. Doris Roberts is a nice touch for the movie as well as Philomena, a mysterious clerk who has strange magical powers. Mom For Christmas is a glitzy Christmas romp that will bring tears to the viewer's eyes. 10 out of 10.
