Cheers to this Mini Cheers Reunion
25 August 2016 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

This film is a delight. Shelley Long Reunites with her "Cheers" co- star George Wendt in this Christmas Theme Film. What is perfect is that they play Mr & Mrs Santa Claus.

There is something so special about a "Santa Claus" theme that I will be a huge sucker for.

This is an above average TV-Movie. In this film: A recently engaged woman plans a get-together so her parents can meet her fiancé's family. It turns out that his parents are Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

Lots of fun and has a pure heart. Family safe. Bake some cookies and watch together.
