Our Score
Screenwriter Greg Taylor clearly has a thing about Christmas, as he has written several yuletide tales, including the prequel to this well-meaning if overly sentimental family drama. It's something of a surprise to see veteran hard man Jack Palance getting into the festive spirit, but he lends a certain credibility to the story of a lonely boy who believes that the deer he has found in the forest near his home belongs to Santa and vows to return it to the North Pole. Gavin Fink acquits himself well as the misunderstood misfit, but somehow the essential sense of magic is missing.


A youngster moves to a new area, but has trouble settling in, especially when the local bullies set their sights on him. However, his luck seems to take a turn for the better when he discovers a sweet little reindeer in the snow and vows to take care of it - only to have a battle on his hands when locals find out about the cute creature. Festive fantasy adventure, starring Gavin Fink, Stacy Edwards, John Corbett and Jack Palance.
