A genuine heart-warmer from start to finish., 3 November 2001
Author: kcs from Vacaville, CA, USA

Lloyd Bridges, in the waning years of his film career seemed to devote himself, to a greater degree, to utilizing the film media to express family values. In this particular entry in the genre, the acting is of medium quality and the story line is simple... Santa has to find his replacement or Christmas is lost. (Hollywood seems to put aside the real meaning of Christmas in their tale-telling.) During his search, several sub-plots evolve and therein lies the fun and warmth. Of course the ending is cast in stone, but in spite of the lack of major production values, I found myself identifying with the characters and rooting for the good guys to win. I was not disappointed and left the picture with a good feeling in my heart and a little bit more love for mankind, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ALL AGES.
