Snow in L. A. for once
16 July 2002 | by (Brentwood, California) – See all my reviews

"The Ultimate Christmas Present" is an okay movie with reasonably good actors and actresses, the characters are okay and they story is pleasant. My favorite part of the movie is that it had to do with snow because I love snow. But if you saw the behind the scenes, you would find out that the snow was actually made out of sugar and rice. Only a few scenes had real snow that was created by a snow making machine. "Joey", played by child actor Spencer Breslin, had the typical little brother to older sister rection. I especially like the parts where the mother is catering for her many parties in the Christmas season because her helper when she is catering, the chef, has lines that are very funny. He has much talent and his wittyness livened up the show a little bit. And I do agree with other reviewers that he should have had more lines and was a good character to have.

We all know that it is impossible for it to snow in L. A. let alone 14 inches in one night, but if you like fantasy movies where the plot of the story could never happen, this would be a good one for you. It seemed that Allie, Joey's sister in the movie, had a perfect life except for that one little thing with her father about Christmas. It is a typical thing for Disney to do. Have the main character have a perfect life except for a few minor problems in which the movie is centered on. But it is fun to see. Adults might think it is a silly thing to make a movie out of, but children and teens 6-14 may have the opportunity to enjoy it.
