Storyline

After his sleigh is shot down while flying through restricted military airspace, an earthbound Santa is sought for questioning by a pair of overzealous Homeland Security agents. The fate of Christmas is now in the hands of the disbelieving by-the-book duo, unless their faith in Santa can be restored by two children and a trio of elves who have arrived from up North to help out a friend in need.

Goofs

As Sophia is filmed walking through the warehouse area to their play area, she has a pink top and skirt with a purple vest. When she enters the play area, the hot pink is gone and replaced with purple skirt and top. (The pink one appears to be the same outfit as she wears on a later day, so it may be a shot from then.)

Plain harmless fun
5 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay the acting isn't the best but it is made-for-TV. Hallmark style, Santa gets grounded, kids come to the rescue, baddie homeland defense guys are looking for him, and one big scary guy is tracking him, for we don't know what reason. Hide, chase and finally Santa is away safe, and all ends well. Suitable for all family if you don't mind explaining some of it to the wee ones as to how Santa can get knocked out of the sky, or come up befuddled on the ground. It explains it all, but you might want to add you own spin so your children will understand that Santa ALWAYS comes through no matter what the conditions might be. I enjoyed watching the bumbling Homeland Defense guys, kind of like Maxwell Smart or an Inspector Clouseau....
