He wants to meet his girlfriend Holly's parents, Nick and Jessica, so that he can ask them for her hand in marriage. Holly has so far always made excuse after excuse why he can't meet them, they who live up north, but she realizes she can no longer put it off seeing as to Connor's intentions, he who she does want to marry. The problem is is that she hasn't told him of her background: Nick and Jessica are Santa and Mrs. Claus. Holly knows that it will be difficult enough to tell Connor this news, but that it will be even more difficult to tell him the fact that in marrying her, he will eventually take over the reigns as Santa.

Little Jack Frost get lost!
This film is just really silly, but I persevered all the way to the end, because I have to support my husband Jesse Hutch.
I could cope with the ridiculous Father Christmas, who was quite obviously wearing a muscle suit under his costume, instead of a fat suit for some reason? I could also cope with the funny little man playing Mario the Elf. I could almost even cope with the tosspot that ran the toy company, but Jack Frost was just so vile he made my skin crawl and I don't think it was just his acting!
It's a good story, but I'd like to see a more serious version. However it was better that the producers of this film decided to go fully silly instead of the odd mix you can sometimes get.
Also, there's no way kids would rave about a wooden dog with wheels!
