Our Score
Mira Sorvino returns to Romy and Michele territory to play Santa's romantically neglected wife in this predictable though perky yuletide fluff. A slight, fish-out-of-water comedy, it's one designed unusually for older family audiences, as Sorvino's elderly Jessica Claus magics herself into a bubbly, red-headed hottie and then nips off to Las Vegas to help a little girl fulfil her Christmas wish of finding Mr Right for her mum. But as the innuendo-laden humour and mischievously adult scenarios quickly emphasise, America's Sin City is a far cry from the North Pole, which leaves the naive and sweetly portrayed Mrs Claus exploited and vulnerable. Fortunately, her regret-filled husband (Will Sasso) and a Vegas-loving elf are soon energetically on her tail, adding a splash of fun to the convenient solutions and lessons of the heart that follow.

Summary

Santa Claus' wife feels neglected by her husband, so leaves the North Pole for Las Vegas in search of excitement - and ends up trying to make a little girl's wish come true. When her repentant husband follows to try to make amends, he accidentally puts the whole of Christmas in jeopardy. Comedy, starring Mira Sorvino, Will Sasso and Laura Vandervoort.
