Trivia

Kate tells Chip that her cookies and brownies are named after family members. The first one is the Sabrina Snickerdoodle, an obvious reference for the Melissa Joan Hart fans, to her character in "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch". The other names are Joe, Aviana, Bella, Clover, Dizzy Izzie, Oliver and Paula. She says Aviana is her niece, which is true - Melissa really has a niece named Aviana. The name Paula is clearly a reference to Melissa's mother Paula Hart. See more »

Goofs

When arriving at the theater, Kate is being repeatedly shushed by the audience while she's yelling at Chip, and she finally shushes the audience right back; at that moment an extra right behind her--a blonde lady wearing a pearl necklace--can't help herself but grin broadly and sweetly at Melissa, thereby breaking character: she, (along with the rest of the audience) is supposed to be very upset at Kate for yelling so much and disrupting the peace, but we can tell from that lady's sweet smile and tender look at the actress, that she was amused by how well Melissa performed her aggravation in that scene. This goof turned into a very cute moment. See more »

I'm nuts about it!
2 December 2018 | by filmklassikSee all my reviews

This Christmas movie starts with an ingenious premise (one I'm shocked has never been used before): A young woman, Melissa Joan Hart, who's lost the spirit of Christmas, finds it rekindled one year when a Nutcracker ornament hanging on her Christmas tree comes to life in the form of handsome, gallant Barry Watson!

Do romantic sparks fly? Watch and find out!

This is one of the most whimsical and imaginative Christmas movies of the last few years. The two leads are terrific, and so is the supporting cast. And the photography - - and music! - - are tops.

Watch and enjoy!
