Storyline

Jack Green inherited a southern Californian horse ranch and an all-natural toy factory in the barn. With his wife Cherie, he accepts taking in the three 'holy terrors' from his bossy aunt Rita's orphanage during renovations, until the holidays. Resourceful Mike and his buddies, Henry and Ray, prove handfuls, but Jack proves father-potential. The trio even goes on best behavior after overhearing the couple considers adopting, but that also means rivaling, resulting in trouble for everyone. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Jack took the three boys to find and cut down a Christmas tree with a double-bladed ax, but when they showed up afterward at the orphanage with a tree, it had clearly been cut down with a saw as the trunk had a smooth straight cut all the way through it with no ax marks on or around it. See more »

DVD Please?!
13 September 2016 | by (Orlando, Fl) – See all my reviews

My daughter and I look forward to this Christmas movie every year. We would love to have it on DVD. Will it ever be released to DVD? We hope so. This is a sweet story about a family who take in 3 orphans during the holiday season. The bumps along the way provide for a moving adventure and a very sweet story. It is a good lesson in what the holiday season is truly about. Dean Cain does a great job portraying the owner of the ranch whose aunt helps run the local orphanage. Due to unforeseen circumstances, he and his wife, who cannot have children, end up taking in several children. In more recent years, we've only found this title on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel. We realize it was released back in 2009 and the viewership may just not have warranted a DVD release, but since it was a Hallmark Original, we can hope for that. We enjoy many of the family films Hallmark and Gold Crown Media release!
