Storyline

About the Movie: Debbie Macomber's Call Me Mrs. Miracle No one celebrates the holidays like Emily Merkle (Doris Roberts) - or Mrs. Miracle as she is known by some - who is back to ensure that this Christmas is the most magical and meaningful of all. When Mrs. Miracle appears as a seasonal employee in the toy department at the financially troubled Finley's Department Store, neither the store's owners, nor the customers, have any idea of the events that are about to unfold. Just when it seemed Christmas might not come at all this year, Finley's favorite employee proves they don't call her Mrs. Miracle for nothing! Also starring Jewel Staite, Eric Johnson and Lauren Holly. Written by MovieCollector.com

Goofs

Sixteen minutes before the end of the film, the elder Mr. Finley gives his son Jake a Bachmann "XL Express" H-O gauge toy train set. The father explains that the gift had been purchased 20 years earlier, before Jake's mother died, which would have been in 1990. There is a large sticker on the toy train set that reads, "DVD format video instructions now included with this set." However, DVDs were not developed until 1995 and both DVDs and DVD players were not available on the market until 1997. See more »

Sugary Sweet and Utterly Forgettable
28 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a sweet story, but there was a theme throughout of returning to a more slow-paced, old fashioned type of holiday. The movie suffers from an seriously saccharine script that is so sugary sweet, it's practically coma inducing. Even when I agreed with the sentiment being stated, I had to roll my eyes at the dialog that was about as subtle as a frying pan to the face.

I actually felt bad for Lauren Holly. Her character was such a ham-fisted caricature of a shallow self centered individual, she occasionally seemed on the verge of cringing while delivering her lines. I'm sure her character was intended to be so over the top as to be humorous, but instead it was just plain awful. I was embarrassed for her.

This movie is okay for what it is - a Hallmark Christmas movie. It's sweet, incredibly simplistic, rather vague on the conflict, and the resolutions are quick and easy. In fact, some of the resolutions are so quick, they're instantaneous. I wouldn't say it's a complete waste of time to watch, but it's such a shallow and frothy piece of fluff that your syrup tolerance level will need to be pretty high. There is so little substance, you will probably forget it thirty minutes after you've viewed it.
