Storyline

Six-year-old Susan Walker discovers dreams do come true if you really believe. She has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle, Santa Claus. Her mother, Dorey, told her the "secret" about him a long time ago, so she 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, she is given the most precious gift of all, something to believe in.

Christmas comes but once a year...
24 August 2001 | by coverme6See all my reviews

And the remake to the classic original MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET makes the wait very worthwhile! Richard Attenborough makes a delightful Kris Kringle, who starts trouble by claiming to be the one, true Santa Claus. Mara Wilson of MRS. DOUBTFIRE also stars as the little girl who at first is cynical about the whole idea of Christmas and St. Nick, but soon Kris Kringle shows her that he does exist. A good holiday flick for the whole family. I'm a teenager, and I thought MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET was a great movie, partly b/c of the film's excellent lack of sap unlike other family movies!
