Storyline

Sixteen-year-old Lindsay Deerfield wants absolutely zilch to do with the whole deal, especially hanging out on Christmas with her family. Lindsay's just way Too Cool for Christmas. She'd totally prefer going skiing with her buds and chilling with the wickedest guys in school. But as sometimes happens on Christmas Eve, Lindsay meets a whiskery old chap whose magic stirs up her spirit and transforms her life forever.! With only two shopping days before Christmas, Lindsay gets up the nerve to notify her physically expressive male homosexual parents that her whole class is going skiing on Christmas Day and that she is definitely going too. The Deerfields are not impressed and ask Lindsay to try to be a little less selfish and consider the feelings of others. Lindsay's six-year-old sister Alexis is devastated by the thought of Christmas without her sister, but for Lindsay, Christmas at home is so been there done that! -- nothing can change her mind. Lindsay -- and her best friend Paige -- ... Written by Insight Film and Video

An adorable, family, feel good movie.
11 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was actually surprised when I watched this as I had put it off for several weeks. It is definitely one of my top Christmas movies of all time and is definitely worth a buy. At the very least, its worth a watch.

The whole thing has been done before both in movies, TV shows and various other outlets for entertainment but there are quite a few things that make this a unique, "the real meaning of Christmas" movie. I absolutely loved the characters; from the stereotypical first-born blonde upper class teenager to the aged Santa (George is definitely on my Christmas List of Best Santas, both in and out of "the Beard") to the her parents. I spent most of my time grinning while watching this movie and would readily watch it again and again.

If you're looking for a movie to make you grin, while it may not be hilarious, it is definitely humorous. Oh, and don't forget the security guard! Probably the strangest character I've yet to watch. And I tend to pick weird movies.

I'll say it again, definitely worth a watch!
