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

According to an interview with Adam McKay, Fox had planned to give the film a small, eight hundred-screen release until it received a perfect one hundred percent test screening score. Instilled with confidence, the studio tripled the marketing budget, and gave it a wider release, but the strategy backfired, when the film collapsed in the crowded 1994 holiday film slate, notably compared to another, more successful Santa Claus-themed film, The Santa Clause (1994). McKay attributed the film's failure to the film's plot depicting bureaucracy out to disprove the existence of Santa Claus, joking that "No one's going to say Santa Claus sucks.'" 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.
