A little girl discovers dreams do come true if you really believe. Six-year-old Susan has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle - Santa Claus. Her mother told her the "secret" about Santa a long time ago, so Susan doesn't expect to receive the most important gifts on her Christmas list. But after meeting a special department store Santa who's convinced he's the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all - something to believe in. Written by

There is a seen in the department store (Cole's) where Mrs. Walker (Elizabeth Perkins) is standing on the second floor looking down at a group of children below. Her hair is pulled back in a low ponytail and she is talking to Mr. Shellhammer. This is a shout out to a scene in "Big" in which Elizabeth Perkins also stars. In "Big" she is also standing on the second floor with the same hair style looking down at a group of children below talking to Paul (John Heard). See more »
In the list of 'We believe' is Ironworkers Local 542 - there is no such branch in New York state. The other union reference Teamsters Local 237 is correct. See more »
And the remake to the classic original MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET makes the wait very worthwhile! Richard Attenborough makes a delightful Kris Kringle, who starts trouble by claiming to be the one, true Santa Claus. Mara Wilson of MRS. DOUBTFIRE also stars as the little girl who at first is cynical about the whole idea of Christmas and St. Nick, but soon Kris Kringle shows her that he does exist. A good holiday flick for the whole family. I'm a teenager, and I thought MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET was a great movie, partly b/c of the film's excellent lack of sap unlike other family movies!
