Storyline

Jack Clayton can only escape after his partner in crime Harry Zordich messes up a Christmas sales department store robbery in a Santa suit. Stuck in a rural small town, he finds himself forced to accept a menial job under the alias Oscar Burton as Santa in Sarah Gibson's nursery. Jack relaxes when invited in their home and proves a good substitute father for Sarah's frustrated fatherless daughter Noelle. Widow Emily Sutton's nostalgic Christmas shop completes his nostalgia, and becomes crucial when his ex-con cahoot turns up to plan a bank robbery. Sarah's admirer keeps warning the sheriff against 'Oscar', who meanwhile teaches the town how to fight off competition from the city mall. Written by KGF Vissers

Nice movie
24 December 2006 | by EasternMafiaSee all my reviews

Very, very nice. Deep and nice.

Took me some time to get into it. But I have easily get inside I continue to like the movie... So many nice dialogs and the love actions inside. All actors are so great. All of them just fit there. No fake ones. Idea is good.

To shame of bad endings. If I have wrote this, it wouldn't be like that. It will be something: he have took the money and run with her somewhere on the Hawaii :-). But this have a better ending.

As the actors are so great, not to much standard American Hollywood, this deserves 10 points from my side.

!The only problem with this movie is: you will watch it one time, not two times. It is to simple to watch two times. This is like a family movie... That is the reason way I prefer action and emotion together.
