Storyline

When successful attorney, Mitch Bright (Daniel Baldwin), returns home after more than 20 years to the small town of Trapper Falls, Alaska he runs into his old high schools rivals: the Reed brothers, Dan (Ted McGinley) and Greg (Brad Stein). Dan is building a new platform for the town's traditional nativity scene, but he is the mayor of the town, the platform is being built with city money, and it's on city property. To top things off: Dan is even married to Kristen (Nancy Stafford) the girl both Dan and Mitch liked in high school. The first thing Mitch does is file a legal injunction against the nativity citing separation of church and state. The second thing he does is decide to run for mayor against his main rival Dan; Dan has been the mayor for years. Mitch accuses Dan of forcing his Christianity upon the entire town, then Mitch goes on a rant about the arrogance and hypocrisy of all Christians. Mitch has a way with people, and plans to bring more business to the town, and soon he ... Written by Tana Colburn

Finding the true meaning of Christmas and why it is celebrated
20 December 2011 | by (Stoney Creek,Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is what one might say"where the rubber hits the road",it was not what I expected after reading someone else's review,I was about to dismiss this as a movie that trashed Christian beliefs.The acting was very good(Daniel Baldwin had you disliking him right from the beginning because of his dislike for those who celebrate Christmas for what it is),but if I didn't watch it I had no right to review it,I am a Christian and I try not to be narrow minded but I do stand firm on my faith so I watched it and was more than mildly surprised and showed we as Christians are tolerant of other faiths,yes sometimes the Christian faith(those who believe in The God and Jesus of the BIBLE)have not lived up to the commands of Jesus to Love everyone and will admit we are an imperfect people.No matter what your faith this movie says what needed to be said and for at least 1 day a year we can come together and be joyful and happy in a world that sees little of it for the other 364 days of the year.It's a shame it was not released for this year 2011 but for me it was a 10 star. :)
