A great Christmas movie...
23 December 2006 | by bob-baerSee all my reviews

I actually agree with everything Beltar said. He didn't mention that Andrea Roth is a real pleasure to look at, but she certainly is.

Good story line - a girl loses her parents and husband and is left driving a limo trying to get by raising her young son. An interesting but strange rich man hires her limo on Christmas eve and has her drive him to various ice rinks where he gives out $100 bills to the people there. The news media catches on and starts following him. Some interesting twists follow, but the movie is somewhat predictable.

Great cast, well done. It's on Lifetime again this year. Definitely worth watching. I'd watch it again too!
