Jonathan Taylor Thomas left Home Improvement to do this movie. He said he was going to college, but he did this movie instead. When Tim Allen found out, he was really angry. See more »
In the very first scene, Ian is locked in a wall locker and passes Jake his mail, math test, and Dave Matthews passes downward through the lowest vent of the locker from the inside. When the locker door opens we can see that the lowest vent is level with the shelf, there is no way Ian could have reached above the shelf to pass those objects down through the vent. 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!!
