Hunter Toys CEO Drake Hunter turned his father's company from a cozy quality manufacturer into a ruthless, profitable business. After denying his staff any festive generosity again, the scrooge is suddenly and magically transformed into Kris Krandall. That forces him to work as a Santa in Norm Dobson's toy store, with weird would be-actor Sebastian. Drake reassesses his values and priorities in life.Written by
Kevin Sorbo's character is named Drake Hunter, another character Kevin Sorbo played was Captain Dylan Hunt of the Andromeda ascendant in the TV show, Andromeda, giving both of his characters the initials DH as a possible reference to his role as Dylan Hunt or possibly just a coincidence. See more »
When in the park (with the kids and the snow), one of the kids tramples on some snow which appears to slide along the ground, like a rug/piece of cloth. See more »
I don't think there is anybody in the whole world that cares about Drake Hunter.
Every year we are exposed to different takes on traditional stories. There are rarely new concepts, just different ways of interpretation.
Kevin Sorbo has a dozen screen appearances this year, and it is a welcome break to see him in something other than Hercules or Syfy.
He is perfect as an unloved CEO - no wife, no girlfriend, no friends of any kind. He pushed cheap toys and is only interested in sales, not people.
Of course, he runs into the real Santa, who decides to teach him a lesson. He is now broke and in a Santa suit. What else is going to do but work as Santa for Christmas? Of course, there is a sad, cute little girl (Brianna Daguanno), and a perky social worker (Jennifer Gibson).
This one will tug at your heartstrings even if you know how it will end.
