Workaholic FBI agent Jake Cunningham fears his case against investment fraudster Scott Shift may not stick without the testimony of cocktail waitress Brandi O'Neill, who naively believed to be more then Scott's latest throwaway flirt. Jake is tricked by his ma to spend Christmas with his 'badly ill' dad, judge Joe Cunningham. Jake never visited his family in years, so he passes off Brandi as his steady date. She insists to stay, and like ma enjoys the posh - working class seasonal culture clash. Things get grim again when dad discovers Jake is undercover and sympathizes rather with the corrupt Shift family's lawyer Stanley. Written by
Undercover Christmas is an easy going and unoffensive film with a romantic festive theme. Jamie Gertz plays Brandi a cocktail waitress whose wealthy boyfriend Scott is being investigated by the FBI for major tax fraud.
When Scott is arrested the FBI try to get Brandi to testify and to prevent her from being influenced by Scott they put her in protective custody and assign a FBI agent to her, Jake played by Shawn Christian.
When Jake hears that his dad had been taken ill, Jake takes Brandi home to meet her parents at Christmas and makes out that they are engaged.
It becomes clear that Jake and his father, a prominent judge do not get on. His mother (Tyne Daly) tries to keep the peace but it seems clear that his father is more interested in impressing people than actually getting on with his family. He is far from impressed once it transpires who Brandi really is but by this time both Brandi and Jake develop feelings for each other.
There is little to surprise you here in this made for television film. Tyne Daly gives the stand-out performance as the mother who wants to keep her family together, the dad is certainly obnoxious and puts the film out of kilter. He really is badly written, in real life every member of his family would had walked out on him.
