Storyline

When he breaks a promise to spend Christmas with his family, Randy, a six-foot elf, appears and turns him into Santa Claus. Now Mr. Covington has to learn the true meaning of Christmas as he gets to work putting some crooks in jail, making up with his family and, oh yes, delivering presents to children all over the world.

PLEASE BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. I HAVE OVER 400 REVIEWS OF "CHRISTMAS RELATED FILMS & SPECIALS" WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN.

Now Someone keeps reporting my reviews. I guess they are jealous because I do tell the truth. I want to point out that I never make snide remarks about actors weight or real life sexual orientation. If there acting is terrible or limited "I talk about that". If a story is bad "I will mention that" So why am I being "picked on"? IMDB? When one of my reviews gets deleted IMDB will not even tell me what someone found offensive. Well on to this review.

In this movie Gordon Covington (D.L. Green) doesn't get to spend enough time with his family because of woes associated with his job as a used-car salesman. Work pressures keep him from family obligations, and he even misses Christmas with his wife and kids. His lack of caring about his family sends out a red alert to "The North Pole" and one elf is determined to reset Gordon's life.

Now all of this sounds good but it was poorly made. The acting was "terrible" and the overall plot feels forced and unnatural.
