Jake Richardson stole the movie with his really bad moods!
4 November 2007 | by (Richardson, Texas) – See all my reviews

It's not often that a villain steals the performance. Besides Margaret Hamilton (Elmira Gulch/Wicked Witch of the West), Jake Richardson falls into that category.

He plays the bratty Reggie Van Dough who threatens to be in a REALLY BAD MOOD! if he doesn't get his way. Maybe he should have dated Veruca Salt (Willy Wonka).

All in all, this holiday movie is awesome & David Gallagher did a better job than MacCauly Culkin in the title role.

Glad that Jake & David also did a 7th Heaven episode where Jake played a bad boy who had a gun. Maybe he should've told Simon to break up with his girl or he'd get into a REALLY BAD MOOD!
