Review

Our Score
There's a quaint premise behind this yuletide TV movie, as Santa threatens to quit because too many children on his present list are naughty not nice. However, his younger daughter (Kathy Ireland) is convinced that the family firm will fall further into disrepute if her hissable older sister (Mary Donnelly-Haskell) assumes control and persuades her father to give her the chance to see if she can convince just one household to mend its ways. Essentially, it's Scrooge without the ghosts, as Ireland sets out to reform workaholic John Dye and his neglected, but ghastly kids. Unexpectedly lively festive fodder.

Summary

As a disillusioned Father Christmas prepares to hang up his famed red suit for the last time, his own kids decide to prove the seasonal spirit is still flourishing. Family drama, starring Kathy Ireland, John Dye, Michael Gilden and Douglas Campbell.
