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

Fundamentalist self indulgence at it's best
26 December 2010 | by papabearEGSee all my reviews

This film is so disgusting and disturbing on so many levels I refused to let my niece watch it. I want her to know that our faith is about love and that means having utmost humility and respect for the beliefs of others. What strikes me as most sad is the "us against them" viewpoint that has become all to prevalent in today's churches along with The idea that being a Christian puts you automatically at war with anyone who doesn't believe as we do. this film has a confrontational, angry tone that is based an a fantasy that America belongs to us and us alone, and our faith has no room for anyone who is not a fundamentalist Christian, I am disturbed that it paints us as angry, hard hearted people. Christmas with a capital C is nothing more than paranoid masturbation and has no place in my home.
