When Nolan is talking with Jake in the van while driving he is holding a tomato in one hand and a hamburger in the other, but when he hands them over to Jake (to catch Allie and Eddie) he only hands over the hamburger, and the tomato is nowhere to be seen. See more »
Well, I'd give this a 6 out of 10 because I love Christmas, but really the plot was fairly thin and wasn't this same idea run through in John Hughes "Dutch (aka Driving Me Crazy) - kid doesn't want to go home (for Thanksgiving in that movie), but then he has all sorts of adventures on the road on his way home and learns his lesson, etc, etc.
The only problem with this movie is that, unlike "Dutch", I honestly didn't feel that JTT had learned his lesson at all, he was still a scam artist at the end. Disney should really learn some lessons from John Hughes / Chris Columbus, they really know how to make a kids live-action movie!
I was so disappointed because it sounded like a really fun idea, but turned into the plot of a so-so TV movie.
It's worth seeing, but go on cheap Tuesday, or with free tickets, you'll feel less ripped off!!
