A father needs to get a Turbo Man action figure for his son just before Christmas. Unfotunately, every store is sold out of Turbo Man figures, and he must travel all over town and compete with everybody else to find a Turbo Man figure.
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

When he renders his judgment in the climactic sequence at the end of the film, Jugde Harper mentions that the $1 bill on which he found the words "In God We Trust" was issued by the Treasury of the United States. In fact, current U.S. banknotes are issued by the Federal Reserve Banks, not the Treasury. (Note that this error does not apply to the original 1947 film of which this is a remake: At that time, the U.S. Treasury still issued a form of banknotes called silver certificates.) 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!
