Film suffers because the leads are 20 years too old for the parts
Listen I like Connie Sellecca and Corbin Bernsen. They are good actors but they are both around 50 playing parents to a 7 year old.
This film however also suffers from steeling a few things from "Home Alone" and failing to execute even a minor chuckle from obvious set- ups.
In this film Young Justin Carver (Dylan and Cole Sprouse) is having Thanksgiving dinner with his family, only for it to end with the news that his best friend Bobby's (Hannelius) bickering parents are finally deciding to divorce. When he overhears his own parents, Stephanie and David Carver (Sellecca and Bernsen) having a heated argument, Justin retreats to his bedroom. A few minutes later, Justin peeks downstairs, only to see his mother Stephanie locked in a warm, romantic embrace with none other than Santa Claus (actually his father in a Santa suit). He takes a photo, shows it to Bobby the next day, and then sends it to Mrs. Claus. Fooled by Bobby's own situation with his parents, Justin jumps to the conclusion that his mother is having an affair with Santa. So he decides to behave as badly as possible in an attempt to prevent Santa from coming to his house on Christmas Eve night for him to make off with the Justin's mother. The resulting hi-jinks include Justin setting traps and throwing snowballs at a street Santa, and even getting himself in trouble at school. Then, on Christmas Eve, Justin's mother receives a letter from the post office. Inside was the photo which didn't actually get sent. In the end, Justin finds out that Santa was actually his father and apologizes to the street Santa.
This film might entertain young kids but parents will hate this. It also seems mean to show that Santa can put married people back together if that is child;s Christmas wish.
If you want to watch this and you are over 12 you will be bored!
