Lillian Brooks: [on the phone] I've just returned from a very expensive night at the Charlisle to find a $1200 bill form your branch of Rodent Murder Incorporated and no rats.

Lillian Brooks: No, I don't want the actual rat bodies. I want proof that you found something in this house other than a grade A sucker.

Adorable Christmas movie
13 January 2003 | by Sarah-EmbrySee all my reviews

I think this is a great movie. Perfect for families to watch on christmas eve together. Ethan Embry(credited as Ethan Randall) gave a stunning performance for a 12-13 year old, in only his second starring role. Flawless New York accent. Thora Birch was of course perfect for the role of Hallie, and seeing Leslie Nielson as Santa was cool. Kevin Nealon deserves some credit for his role, that man always amuses me.

Although the movie is quite typical for a family christmas film, I like it better than most.

8.5/10 stars.
