My thoughts on "Defending Santa"
10 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

LOVED this film....ESPECIALLY loved characters played by Jud Tylor and Dean Cain....perfect film for the holiday season! Myself, my husband and son really enjoyed it. A film to make you feel good, it made you want to bake cookies and decorate your Christmas tree! And the cast excelled with solid performances...hoping this is going to become a holiday tradition, like watching A Christmas Story or Miracle on 34th Street! In this day and age, it's refreshing to watch a film of this quality, without nudity, drugs, sex, and violence, as this does not always have to be included in a film for it to be successful. Or, to touch your heart....
