So much hate for so such a warm movie
11 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus has been my favorite Christmas movie since the fateful year of 2005 when I first saw it on the PAX Network. Before going to ION, PAX would show movies I believe every Friday night and during the month of December, obviously they would show Christmas films every Friday. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus was one of the movies and tuning into it about fifteen minutes late, I still enjoyed it and it never gets old.

The film may be panned by audiences who call it "cliche", and I don't recall it ever going to theaters in it's release year 2001. I taped it off of TV in 2006, and finally bought a DVD in 2008. Ever since 2005 it has become a ritual that I watch this film at least once in the month of December to not only to commemorate the holidays, but as well as my childhood. Some films can't go one year with out a watch, and I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus is one of them. Whenever I pop this in the player, or watch it on ABC's 25 Days of Christmas I get a flashback to when I first watched it and even memories of my first Christmas. The four stars not only goes to the film, but it's ability to send me back to the past...

The plot: an eight year old boy named Justin (played by both Cole and Dylan Sprouse, respectively) feels bad for his friend Bobby who's parents are constantly arguing and fighting. The parents announce at the Thanksgiving dinner they will be getting divorce. Justin sneaks out of bed to find his parents arguing with his dad leaving and fears the same events will happen to him. He sees Santa (his father) come in the door and kiss his mother. Justin snaps a picture and now he has the best evidence any eight year old can have.

Justin talks it over with his friend Bobby who says if he behaves badly, Santa won't come to his house and stay away from his mom. The father then goes away on business so the kid can't tell his father about his evidence. The whole film is Justin trying to kick down every mall, Salvation Army, and school Santa there is to prevent him from going near his mother. As well as establishing cleverly inventive traps.

The traps resemble Home Alone to an extent, but they keep them minimal so it's not like a flat out copy. One of my favorite scenes is the chase between the mall Santa and Justin. Somehow I wanted to reenact that scene in real life when I was little - that never worked out too well.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus is more than meets the eye. Don't think because it's not as famous as Scrooge, It's a Wonderful Life, and Charlie Brown that it's not as good. To me, it's my favorite Christmas film and one of the few reasons I look forward to the Holiday season. Movies have come a long way, and for this to be one of the few bright sides about the Holidays is a very unusual thing. Nothing but smiles, memories, and laughs when I turn this gem on.

Starring: Connie Sellecca, Corbin Bernsen, and Cole and Dylan Sprouse. Directed by: John Shepphird.
