A group of six lost tourists and their van driver find their way to an elegant hilltop mansion where they are invited to stay for the weekend by an eccentric and overly cheerful middle-aged couple who introduce themselves as Nanna and Pop. They soon reveal themselves as the actual Santa Claus and his wife whom spend their summers away from the North Pole at their summer house in southern California. Everyone, except for teenager Andy, who is dealing with his bickering and workaholic parents, Dean and Sadie, is skeptic to Nanna and Pop's claims. During the weekend, Nanna and Pop try to open up their guests to brightness and positively to better their lives to find the true meaning of happiness. Written by Larry B.

I watch a lot of these daytime Christmas films and surprisingly find most of them ok around the 6/10 standard but this one was woeful.

The plot was not actually the worst, but acting was atrocious, the married couple worst of all, along with Mrs Claus. The wife of the arguing couple seemed to have no interest at all in even being in the film or acting.

They were not given much by lines to work with and that added to one endless game of croquet, with no dialogue, no idea how the the game worked and awful editing where one of the phases of play was shown twice and images of Christmas items between scenes made it a arduous watch.

The guy who played Santa tried his best and the young boy and girl were fine but could not improve it.
