For the Christmas holidays, Buck Seger has been tasked with getting some reindeer from a game farm for the San Ernesto California Zoo. Sandy Brooks, an animal keeper at the zoo, is a lonely woman who uses the animals as a surrogate for human affection. Despite this, she detests Buck, who is continually pestering her to go out with him. In his task for the zoo, Buck, indulging his big game hunting passion, decides to get one of the reindeer from the wild instead. He inadvertently captures Buddy, one of Santa's new reindeer. Santa not only has come to San Ernesto to rescue Buddy, but also to teach Buddy to fly, all before Christmas Day. Santa can travel between the North Pole and any location in the world via mirrors. While in San Ernesto, Santa names himself Nick Snowden. To get Buddy back, Nick figures he has to get close to Sandy, a move that does not sit well with Buck. Nick manages to move into the boarding house where Sandy lives. Getting Buddy back is more difficult than Nick ... Written by Huggo

the movie snow
5 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i thought the movie was so fantastic...I'm am almost obsessed with is a perfect movie to show during Christmas. It made me get more excited for the Christmas season. Ashley Williams is such a good actress...she has such a cheery attitude and is so good at being who she was in the movie..i also thought Tom Cavinagh was a good actor..he played the role of Santa so well. U wouldn't have thought of Santa like that. I just really enjoyed the movie and i think the characters were awesome..i have never never liked a Christmas movie more..i think this is one of my favorites..It also had a good story line to it..i liked how they went back and forth to the north pole and to Calinfornia.
