Cute Christmas comedy!
27 November 2007 | by windypoplarSee all my reviews

Shannen Doherty stars in this made for TV caper, she plays Cate, a savvy thief who get betrayed by her partner and must run from the law. With her Sister and Brother-in-law stranded in the Bahamas, she hides out by baby-sitting her niece and nephew in Comfort, USA. Cate being Cate, she's less than thrilled. Cate grew up in comfort and her ex-boyfriend is now the sheriff! Uh-oh! Her Nephew, Parker, takes after her, and Cate's not so sure thats a good thing. Can the holiday spirit melt her heart?

Shannen is well cast here and she does great with the role. She looks fantastic too I might add. I didn't know the supporting cast but they were all good, especially the kids, who manage to be cute without being annoying. "Christmas Caper" doesn't have the sweetness of the Kathy Ireland movies, or the panache of the Mimi Rogers "Christmas List" but its a nice holiday movie for the whole family.

The scene that really got me is at the Christmas party, somewhat grudgingly Cate decorates the house with Hank and her kin, then her little niece Annie gives her a heart, because her Mom, Cate's sis, said she didn't have one, the look on Shannen's face broke my heart. Its very touching and you pretty much figure that she'll have a change of heart.

Even so , I was surprised by Cate's decision, I won't spoil it in case you haven't seen this, This is a good Christmas movie in an age when they don't do very many. The big movies that get released in the theaters tend to be awful, so stay home and enjoy this on with a glass of eggnog!
