Our Score
Anyone who's seen movies like Bedazzled or Ghost Rider will know that movie wishes are never granted without strings attached. Well Santa proves to be every bit as sneaky as Satan (now there's a curious anagram) in this festive frolic, starring the shamefully undervalued Mimi Rogers. She plays a perfume counter assistant who gets more than she bargained for after dropping a letter into the mailbox at her department store's grotto. Veteran TV-movie director Charles Jarrott allows the romance to get a touch tacky towards the end, but he draws a spirited performance from Rogers as well as a splendid supporting turn from Stella Stevens.


A shop assistant is frustrated at her lack of success at work and fed up with her boyfriend taking her for granted. She writes a list of the things she wants out of life, which ends up in the shop's mailbox for children's letters to Santa. Magically, her wishes start coming true, but not always in the way she hoped. Fantasy drama, starring Mimi Rogers, Rob Stewart and Stella Stevens.
