Storyline

When successful attorney, Mitch Bright (Daniel Baldwin), returns home after more than 20 years to the small town of Trapper Falls, Alaska he runs into his old high schools rivals: the Reed brothers, Dan (Ted McGinley) and Greg (Brad Stein). Dan is building a new platform for the town's traditional nativity scene, but he is the mayor of the town, the platform is being built with city money, and it's on city property. To top things off: Dan is even married to Kristen (Nancy Stafford) the girl both Dan and Mitch liked in high school. The first thing Mitch does is file a legal injunction against the nativity citing separation of church and state. The second thing he does is decide to run for mayor against his main rival Dan; Dan has been the mayor for years. Mitch accuses Dan of forcing his Christianity upon the entire town, then Mitch goes on a rant about the arrogance and hypocrisy of all Christians. Mitch has a way with people, and plans to bring more business to the town, and soon he ... Written by Tana Colburn

Haven't seen it but...
17 December 2011 | by ectogwarbSee all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie, but I have to comment on the others reviews here. I hate how people are so quick to criticize and become "offended" at every little thing they can get their hands on these days. Christmas may have started as a Christian holiday, but now it is a secular holiday. It's Hanukkah, Kwanza, Christmas, and every other winter gift giving season in one. There are a lot of people of every faith that celebrate Christmas. It's a time to set aside to be nice to each other, spread a little more love than the rest of the year, give and get gifts that say "you're special to someone" and generally feel better than the rest of the year. There's not a lot to feel nice about these days, and the fact that people attack the celebration of Christmas because it happened once to be a Christian holiday is abhorrent. It didn't even start as a Christian holiday. It used to be a pagan holiday and was turned into a day to celebrate Christ's birth because it was convenient for the church because everyone was celebrating at that time anyway. It has changed again. Ask almost any child who they think of when they think of Christmas and they won't say Jesus, they'll say Santa Claus. I would say you should be ashamed of yourselves for denigrating something that should make everyone feel better about everyone else, but it's Christmas time, so I'll just say Merry Christmas to you all, regardless of religion, and consider this message strongly the next time you think about badmouthing Christmas.
