Storyline

After his sleigh is shot down while flying through restricted military airspace, an earthbound Santa is sought for questioning by a pair of overzealous Homeland Security agents. The fate of Christmas is now in the hands of the disbelieving by-the-book duo, unless their faith in Santa can be restored by two children and a trio of elves who have arrived from up North to help out a friend in need.

Goofs

As Sophia is filmed walking through the warehouse area to their play area, she has a pink top and skirt with a purple vest. When she enters the play area, the hot pink is gone and replaced with purple skirt and top. (The pink one appears to be the same outfit as she wears on a later day, so it may be a shot from then.)

A safe film for the kids.
9 January 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 (C H R I S T M A S ) MOVIES AND SPECIALS.

BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN.

Christmas movies are all over the place during the holidays. I have to admit that some of these films are bad however some are great. This film however is somewhere in the middle. Its not great & its not bad. It is however meant for small children which is fine. This film however makes a huge mistake by not making it smart. Children are not as stupid as the producers think and for that the film suffers.

In this film Santa is marooned in a small town when his sleigh is mistaken for a UFO. He is rescued by two children and tries to prepare for Christmas while stranded far from the North Pole. To make sure Christmas isn't ruined this year, Santa must find a way to take flight by Christmas Eve.

A great idea for a film but the filmmakers did dumb this down. That's too bad. They could have had something very special.
