A little girl discovers dreams do come true if you really believe. Six-year-old Susan has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle, Santa Claus. Her mother told her the "secret" about Santa a long time ago, so Susan doesn't expect to receive the most important gifts on her Christmas list. But after meeting a special department store Santa who's convinced he's the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all, something to believe in.Written by

There is a scene in the department store (Cole's) where Mrs. Walker (Elizabeth Perkins) is standing on the second floor looking down at a group of children below. Her hair is pulled back in a low ponytail and she is talking to Mr. Shellhammer. This is a shout out to a scene in Big (1988), in which Elizabeth Perkins also stars. In Big (1988), she is also standing on the second floor with the same hair style looking down at a group of children below talking to Paul (John Heard). See more »
While Bryan is giving his final statement, Susan is seen sitting away from her mother in one shot and cuddled up next to her seconds later. See more »
I remember seeing the original movie Miracle on 34th Street, that movie could never be replace with this version. This is the best updated remake of a classic story. There are some difference between the movies, but it is almost the same plot. If I could not find the original movie playing on TV during the holidays, this is the one worth watching.
