Trivia

In one scene of the film, George Graves (John Ratzenberger) mentions to Melanie, Dean, and Chris that he is having pork chops for dinner. This is likely an amusing nod to Ratzenberger's role as the voice of Hamm the piggy bank, a.k.a. Evil Doctor Pork Chop, in the Toy Story film franchise. See more »

Goofs

While Melanie and Santa are chatting before takeoff, the captain announces that they are "number 3 for takeoff". However, the scenery outside of Melanie's window shows that the aircraft is still near structures and not on a taxiway. Nor is there any engine noise from other nearby aircraft taking off.

Romance, Sweetness, Santa
29 October 2017 | by juneterry-93075See all my reviews

I suppose I should confess I am a true hopeless romantic. I love most all Hallmark Christmas movies, but even with that said I still have my favorites. I will also add that I don't always feel the chemistry is there between the actors. When it is, when that magic is there, it makes them so much more enjoyable. I loved this one for that reason. I thought the actors all interacted well. This movie has my favorite Santa (he's played Santa in a few Hallmark movies)so I am sure that helped. Lacey Chabert does tend to be one of my favorites. She is such a believable character and everything I see her in. This is my current favorite Hallmark movie, and quite honestly in a world where things are a bit chaotic and full of bad news, movies like this are exactly what I need to restore my faith. I love the old fashioned traditions of making cookies, going to a tree lighting, and just overall feeling like love still exist. The world just needs more of it.
