PG Certificate


Our Score
Kelsey Grammer gives a lively performance as Santa's errant son, Nick, in this clichéd yet nicely acted fantasy. With Dad (a robust Charles Durning) reluctantly retiring, he's due to take over... but the man known as Miami's most eligible bachelor isn't ready for the responsibility. Soon Nick is beset with lightly humorous problems, as his playboy lifestyle starts turning sour and he also magically begins transforming into Father Christmas. Fortunately, he's got his feisty Venezuelan cook (Ana Ortiz) watching his back, leading to a rushed and chemistry-free romance that nonetheless guarantees the film at least has a neat and predictable ending. For a festive TV movie, it's fun enough, but some suggestive jokes and unnecessary swearing mean it's best enjoyed by older family audiences.
