Flaws but Still Worth Watching
11 August 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA.

In this film Drake Hunter, the president of Hunter Marketing, has the perfect plan to boost sales for his father\'s toy company over the holiday season—hire department store Santas to promote his father\'s merchandise. When the real Santa Claus turns Drake into a Santa lookalike, Drake finds himself working as a dress-up Kris Kringle to make ends meet. Stripped of power and position, Drake discovers the importance of honesty, compassion, and respect.

Now the flaws with this film is numerous. The production itself is the main problem. You can tell its fake snow. Out of camera range there is not snow. There is a scene where someone runs down the street. Then when she turns the corner its nighttime.

As for the film itself? Well it works. However barely. Kevin Sorbo is only saved because the people around him are much better actors. There is a few minor surprises here and there but in general it is very predictable. However the film works. If you like Christmas films you will enjoy this. I did.
