Our Score
A dysfunctional yuppie family restores hope to a backwater Colorado town in this far-fetched diversion celebrating unity and the magic of Christmas. Stranded in the appropriately named Nowhere following car trouble, Lauren Holly, Rick Roberts and their two kids inadvertently each become saviours - laughably able to solve all the stereotyped residents' woes with their big-city ways. Events are goofy and idealistic - from a cartoonish Holly cheesily choreographing the local yuletide pageant to her obnoxious teen daughter (Torri Webster) teaching a high-school band how to rock - as they rush towards their predictably convenient conclusion. Naturally, the materialistic clan also ends up transformed, with the ultimate kindness of young son Azer Greco (Holly's real-life offspring) bringing genuine sweetness to the otherwise emotionally flat final act.

Summary

A dysfunctional family gets stranded in a remote and impoverished town two days before Christmas, and ends up getting involved in the local festive pageant. As they help the townsfolk with their problems, they also learn to get along better with each other. Drama, starring Lauren Holly and Rick Roberts.
