Jonathan Taylor Thomas,
A farm girl nurses a wounded reindeer she believes is one of Santa's, hoping to bring it back to health in time for Christmas. Her holiday spirit inspires those around her, something her disheartened father is having trouble understanding.
"All I Want For Christmas" is a comedy about two New York City children who launch a hilarious scheme to get what they most want this holiday season. Ethan, a practical older brother, and adorable Hallie, who knows how to charm her way out of a difficult situation, are intent on spending Christmas with their parents, Catherine and Michael, and grandmother Lillian. As Ethan and Hallie embark on their adventure, almost nothing goes exactly as they planned. Complicating things is a smarmy businessman named Toney Boer, who has taken an interest in Catherine. Ethan, meanwhile, is preoccupied with not only his parents' romantic dilemma, but also his own - one brought about by his new friendship with Stephanie, his first teenage crush. What evolves is an elaborate scheme involving mice, telephone calls and an ice-cream truck, as Ethan and Hallie try to achieve their goal with the help of Stephanie. The duo's primary obstacle is their mother's fiance, Tony. The children finally succeed with a... Written by
The best present that divorced parents can give their children is remarrying millionaires.
Mind you, the siblings in this comedy would prefer their parents remarry each other.
Products of the 1990s separation boom, Manhattanites Ethan (Ethan Randall) and his sister Hallie (Thora Birch) only have one wish this Christmas: to trick their mother (Harley Jane Kozak) into falling back in love with their father (Jamey Sheridan).
But in order to implement a plan that will get rid of their mom's new boyfriend (Kevin Nealon), they need the assistance of their grandmother (Lauren Bacall), Ethan's crush (Amy Oberer) and Santa (Leslie Nielsen).
While the surprisingly funny script ventures into familiar reconciliation territory, this seasonal take on the subject is greatly benefited by its snappy dialogue and resplendent setting even if it does set unrealistic expectations.
Moreover, if you want to really reunite your separated parents over the holidays just fake cancer.
