You'll Want this Mom For The Holidays!!!!
4 July 2000 | by thespian01See all my reviews

I am A HUGE fan of Olivia Newton-John,so I might be Just a little prejudiced. But this sweet,Wonderful story about a lonely little girl's Christmas wish is classic holiday fare on par with It's a wonderful life! Jessica Slocum is an eleven year old girl who lost her mom when she was three. For the last couple of years,she would go to this department store to watch the other little girls shop with their moms,and wish that could be her. Well,through the help of some good ol'"magic" Jess get's her wish, and we get the best made for t.v. holiday movie ever!! There's also 2 new ON-j songs written especially for the movie!! This Xmas gift is funny, touching,and VERY moving!(
