Mediocre but will pass the time on a wintry evening
This made-for-TV film centres around a little boy Justin who witnesses his father, clad in a Santa Claus suit, kissing his mother. Fuelled by his best friend's worries over his recently separated parents, Justin jumps to the conclusion that his mother is having an affair with Santa. So, Justin decides to behave as badly as possible in an attempt to prevent Santa coming to his house on Christmas Eve night lest he make off with the boy's mother.
Dylan and Cole Sprouse, the child actors who share the role of Justin, are wooden on occasion but deliver a passable performance. This is a rather predictable, mediocre film and will hardly be a contender for any awards but it's enjoyable enough to pass time on a quiet December evening. I wouldn't really recommend this film for very young children though as they might be confused with why Justin is beating up Santa!
