Not good
13 November 2014 | by dougdelise-1See all my reviews

I have seen many of holiday movies over the years, this is one that can be easily missed. It has a very weak story, and is a Miracle on 34th Street rip off. The poor writing is compounded by bad acting by those in lead rolls. Weak dialog, inconsistent character interaction, poor character development makes me believe this project was ill conceived from the start. I found myself tempted to turn this movie off and delete it as I recorded it on DVR. Then decided to suffer through it like have a root canal without enough Novocain. Why you ask? To see if I was correct in the predictability of the storyline ending. I'm sure that somewhere there is some that may enjoy this movie that does have two bright spots...the young daughter, and the neglected love interest. Too bad Santa comes across as an absentminded mumbling old man. While his Lawyer is totally clueless, aggravated by a poor performance by Dean Cain. Do yourselves a holiday favor and stay away from this movie, I gave it a four because after all....It is Christmas.
