There are far better out there!
28 July 2015 | by ChenanceouSee all my reviews

Bad script with the usual formula done in a very lazy way. It misses the mark in all its attempts - there's not enough romance to make it romantic, not enough religion to make it Christian and the "Santa is real" theme has been done a lot better elsewhere. The actors do what they can with the material given, but their efforts are not enough to patch up a predictable storyline that feels off from the start. I can think of a lot of Christmas movies that are preferable to this - "Pete's Christmas," "12 Dates of Christmas" and "Northpole" are part of a long list. There are so many titles to choose from when looking for a feel good Christmas movie - do not waste your time with this one.
