Think Planes, Trains and Automobiles set at Christmas instead of Thanksgiving and without the comic talents of Steve Martin or John Candy. This vehicle for Home Improvement teen actor Jonathan Taylor Thomas is watchable enough if you're in the festive mood, as he's clearly having fun as the smart aleck college kid who finds himself stranded in the desert wearing a Santa suit and facing a bizarre journey back to his family for the holidays. While the nightmare trip home has been done better, there are some laughs to be had.

Plot Summary

Seasonal comedy starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Jessica Biel. A self-centred student is offered a vintage Porsche by his father if he can make it home for Christmas. But after a college scam goes wrong, he finds himself stranded in the desert, dressed as Santa.
