Home

Directed By:
Robert Lieberman

Starring:
Thora Birch, Lauren Bacall and Leslie Nielsen

Rated G
Genre: Fantasy/Comedy/Drama
Contains: Mild Violence

THE PLOT:

Hallie is visiting Santa at the mall for the first time but she has a very strange Christmas wish, her wish for Christmas if for her divorced parents to get back together if for only Christmas. So her brother cooks up a scheme in order to make that Christmas wish come true.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

This Christmas take on "THE PARENT TRAP" is just as clever as that classic movie. The story works, the kids do a great job and Leslie Nielsen does a great job as old Saint Nick. But it is dry at points and somewhat sappy in places, but I guess a movie like this is suppose to be sappy. 8 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I really don't have much for add but for a movie that looks like it was made for ABC FAMILY'S 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS it's pretty watchable and enjoyable. In fact, I would have to say that I do agree with what Zedd wrote about this movie. 8 STARS as well.
