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 »

cute, heart-warming movie for Christmas!
19 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I give it an 8 of 10 for what it is - a feel-good family oriented Christmas movie. Dean Cain's aunt Rita runs an orphanage while he and wife Cheri operate a handmade toy company on their lovely farm property, complete with horses. Dean (Jack Green) and Cheri can't have children although both desperately want kids. Aunt Rita talks them into taking 3 little boys (maybe 10 YO) for the Christmas holidays and the little guys overhear Jack and Cheri talking their first night about adopting ONE of them. They begin to compete to see who can get picked and also begin to work their ways into the Greens' hearts. The little boys draw together and become the team they were before the competition and we get a sweet happily ever after ending. Watch it with kids and grandkids, completely safe for all:)
