What in hell?
2 December 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

A black Santa? And a petty thief, at that? That's the premise of this silly TV movie, as the current Santa dies on-screen (say what?) and a new Santa must be found. Dabney Coleman leads the search. They come up with Arnold Pinnock, the above-mentioned petty thief who has about as much interest in being Santa as the Easter Bunny. Pinnock does his best Orlando Jones imitation while Coleman clearly is just picking up a paycheck. A gal, Deanna Milligan, who vaguely reminded me of Penelope Ann Miller from CARLITO'S WAY plays Coleman's second in command. At least she provided some eye candy. For reasons best known to the filmmakers, Joe Flaherty pops up as Count Floyd from the old Canadian show, SCTV. I would have preferred watching 90 minutes of Count Floyd.
