Widower Bill Morgan took in his loser brother-in-law, Uncle Johnny to his cynical, materially spoiled brats Kyle and Charlene, who never need long to chase each new au-pair screaming, while Bill spends all his time on business and a budding affair with a close, equally workaholic spinster colleague. The kids' misbehavior and disbeliever comments on a 'Santa Smells' website got them struck from the Northpole Christmas gifts list, like so many that Santa refuses to go on and leaves on his and Mrs. Klaus's first Hawaian holiday. Firstborn daughter Rudolfa was waiting to succeed and turn Christmas into a creepy prank festival, but her gentle younger sister Kristen begs a change to save Christmas be redeeming the Morgan family. So she reports as new au-pair, who wins the rascals over, finally helped by Johnny, who fears eviction. However Rudolfa has an evil plan, exploiting Bill refusal to pit up a Christmas tree and a crucial business presentation.Written by

A cheesy Christmas movie.
Model Kathy Ireland stars as Kristen Claus, the daughter of Santa Claus, out to prove to his father that there is still Christmas spirit out there in this troubled world. She also pays a visit to the Morgan Family and befriends them.
While Ireland might be a gorgeous and kind lady, she couldn't act much, as she hardly shows any serious emotion. John Dye, who plays Bill Morgan, also didn't have an acting performance that blew me away.
Much of the plot is dull and a drag - too much sappy and happy-go-lucky stuff, but nothing suspenseful or attention grabbing. There is also not much character chemistry and not very likable characters, especially the spoiled, cocky kid Kyle Morgan (James Morgan), whom you wish Ireland would just run over with with the reindeer.
Feel free to overlook this movie if you're looking for some good Christmas-themed entertainment.
