What a marvellous film for children & adults alike!Whoopi is great as the grouchy non-believer,& Nigel Hawthorne is simply the BEST - what a believable Santa he portrays,with twinkling eyes,friendly smile,& a very jolly laugh!A story filled with fun,joy,a bit of sadness,& a few surprises tucked in here & there.The supporting cast is wonderful as well - overall,a must-see holiday film!
