It stinks
23 December 2003 | by (Ontario Canada) – See all my reviews

I love Patricia Heaton on Everybody Loves Raymond and I was a big fan of Peter Falk as Columbo. However, I would like my two hours back after watching this lame movie on television. The actors did their best, but the script and storyline are simply terrible. Do not watch this. If you want a good Christmas film, try It's a Wonderful Life or A Christmas Story instead.
