Television Budget / Running Time Ruined This
18 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The gem of an idea get ruined in this television production. In this film a teenager gets visited by a "Christmas Spirit". This kid is not exactly full of "Christmas Cheer" but he isn't a bad kid. He is an only child to a single mother.

One day he gets a visit from a spirit that he MUST show another family the joy of Christmas. Not knowing how to do that he must wing it. THe spirit tells him to "follow the signs" and he will find the destination! She then hands him a fortune cookie that helps lead the way! Sounds great right. The kid must travel and look for signs. What a great funny set up. Can imagine the stranger on the bus looking at him. He getting the signs wrong. Great Right! Well it never happens. The TV Budget limits this film to just one location.

We go from his home to his destination. The film took too many short cuts. The film could of been great, But it becomes predictable and boring. Kids might like this but adults will just be bored. What could of been a funny and heartwarming story becomes another forgettable Christmas movie.

This film had a great and funny idea. This however a film with an idea that should be re-explored. A bigger budget would help. A longer journey for Riley should be on the agenda if someone does remake this.

If you come across this film pass on it!!
