Delivery-truck driver Eddie Popko, a dreamy wannabe-cowboy, always flirts with convenience-store clerk Rhonda Thompson, but his enthusiasm dims when he meets her hostile 5-year-old twins, Sarah and Julie. When they hear her wish for a holiday without her handfuls, they sneak off to Great-Grandma Mimi's house; unable to find her or the right bus, they sneak into Eddie's truck. He takes to babysitting during his round, but when he delivers them home, he's knocked unconscious by dumb Harvey and mean Shirley, senior robbers who steal his truck, including the Christmas parcels and the twins--who have possession of the lottery tickets he bought in hopes of winning $1.3 million. He decides to help Rhonda and police detective Gremp with the search and even raises a 'borrowed' ransom. Written by KGF Vissers

An adorable one !
5 August 2009 | by xhailiexskxSee all my reviews

Oh i loved this movie. The twins are so sweet and you can just sense the whole Christmas spirit. Mary Kate and Ashley had done a great job even though they were just kids. J. Eddie Peck was really good too. He completely blended in his role. The cast was brilliantly picked. You would never say it is an 1992 movie because compared to some 'nowadays' movies this is a classic ! This was my favorite movie when I was a kid and even though so many years have passed I can still watch it and feel the same way I did when I first saw it. It's an adorable movie for the whole family to watch and enjoy. Especially around holidays.

I would recommend it to anyone.
