Beverly Hills 90210 alumni Jason Priestley takes the helm for this warmhearted romantic comedy about a die-hard party girl struggling to change her frivolous ways. Crystal (Amy Acker) comes from a wealthy family and loves to spend money-her parents' money. When they decide it's time she made something of her life, they give her until Christmas to clean up her act--if she doesn't, they will promptly cancel her credit cards. Petrified at the prospect of having no money and no boyfriend, Crystal has a flash of inspiration when she finds a letter to Santa from 7-year-old Olivia (Emma Duke), who wants Santa to find her widower father Derek (David Haydn-Jones) a new wife. Derek owns a local soup kitchen and has dedicated his life to helping others.

During the opening title sequence Crystal is Christmas-shopping and takes out her iPhone to loot at her shopping list via the iPhone-notes app. Although nearly every shop sports Christmas window-displays, the phone shows "Today 31 Mar" in the note. See more »
Love this movie. Plot is totally predictable like 90% of every other movie in the IMDb. Widower dad adorable daughter wants Santa bring daddy new mommy spoiled rich girl finds letter to Santa yadda yadda ...
But who cares? Great execution by everyone involved. Amy Acker lights up every scene. Jason Priestly smartly keeps the camera on her most of the time. The father/daughter pair are cast perfectly and play off of each other well. The antagonist girlfriend hits just the right note. The LGBTQ character plays beyond stereotype effectively. Production values are passable. Hard to imagine a better Hallmark/Lifetime-like movie.
