Not bad if you like stories about Kris Kringle
25 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

There are some familiar story lines, but this story is put together a little differently. Kris Kringle has been Santa (not "playing Santa") for 50 years since his new wife died on Christmas Eve. A skeptical reporter is sent to blog about this man and the town of Mistletoe. Kris seems to know things that perhaps wouldn't be common knowledge, especially about the kids.

William Morgan Sheppard does a wonderful job as Kris. The other actors are passable.

The story, the production, the acting - there is nothing special except for Sheppard. To me, the story was forced. For one thing, the leading man doesn't have a conversation with the leading lady until 1/3rd of the film passes. People around them are hinting at romance before they have gotten to know each other at all. The movie is totally unconvincing as to why they should fall in love. Part of the problem with the romance is that this movie is just as much about Kris and it is hard to have time to do justice to both.

There are some heartwarming moments at the end which are probably worth persevering for.
