I don't think there is anybody in the whole world that cares about Drake Hunter.
Every year we are exposed to different takes on traditional stories. There are rarely new concepts, just different ways of interpretation.
Kevin Sorbo has a dozen screen appearances this year, and it is a welcome break to see him in something other than Hercules or Syfy.
He is perfect as an unloved CEO - no wife, no girlfriend, no friends of any kind. He pushed cheap toys and is only interested in sales, not people.
Of course, he runs into the real Santa, who decides to teach him a lesson. He is now broke and in a Santa suit. What else is going to do but work as Santa for Christmas? Of course, there is a sad, cute little girl (Brianna Daguanno), and a perky social worker (Jennifer Gibson).
This one will tug at your heartstrings even if you know how it will end.
