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

Christmas with the family, eww!
4 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh, Santa, you are just so out of date. I mean that suit is so last century, and a beard, Eww! You just have to quit stuffing those cookies and milk in your stomach.

Brooke Nevin (I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer) is a superficial teen who wants to go skiing on Christmas and makes a deal with Santa. She'll make him over and help him deliver presents, and he'll help her with her problem.

She makes Santa over into George Hamilton and they work on each other until the predictable ending.

The only thing that was really bad about this movie was the mall security guard. He was a real nut case.

Who knew that Mrs Claus was so hot. Donna Mills from "Knots Landing" played Santa's missus.
