Great feel good nostalgia Christmas fodder.
8 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How can you not wane nostalgic for then "good ole days" after watching this gem. There is a Grinch, a bunch of heroes fighting Charles Lane playing a Scrooge who wants to ruin it all for everyone. Still evokes a decent belly laugh or two, even in ultra jaded viewers as myself. Even though anyone watching this realizes it's a wistful fantasy, we all secretly wish we could be heading towards "Hootersville" for our white Christmas. Just sit back, forget the days trials and tribulations, and let this great escape back into a simpler time and place in TV land sweep over you. I guarantee you won't regret it. Don't worry about who is going to play Santy Claus, there is always going to be a big fat gobbler waiting for all who come across the threshold on Christmas day.
