Storyline

On his way to a luxury resort for the Christmas holiday, banker Charles Benson's car breaks down, so his family gets stuck in Nowhere, Colorado, a sleepy town which seems to be dying since its mine closed. Son Nolan befriends the grumpy old former toy shopkeeper, and pushes the charmed grump to become the naturally perfect Santa in the Christmas pageant his mother helped organize despite the disheartened mayor. Charles gets stuck in the mine with the mechanic, whom he befriends, and ends up as the real Christmas benefactor. Written by KGF Vissers

Nice family made for TV Christmas Movie
1 December 2010 | by bogusannieSee all my reviews

I think this movie was no worse than any other made for TV Christmas movie. It was predictable, yes, but still a cute movie nonetheless. It was definitely a great movie for kids to watch without fear of inappropriate scenes or language. The acting was fine, I certainly wouldn't call it horrid...let's try remember that this was not billed as a blockbuster, it wasn't "profound" but I loved it anyway...and Lauren Holly looked beautiful as always. I guess it's easy to be a critic when you aren't the one in the movie. It entertained and was definitely a 'feel good' story. There were several funny lines. It was a good little Canadian made film. Great job Stephanie!
