Review

Our Score
Leslie Nielsen clearly enjoyed playing Santa Claus in All I Want for Christmas, as he reprises the role with pantomimic brio in this cheerful Disney made-for-TV film. Blown off course by turbulence, he crashes his sleigh into Scrooge-like TV reporter Steven Eckholdt's car and suffers amnesia. However, it takes young Max Morrow to realise the implications of Santa's condition and the race to save the festivities begins. As you'd expect of a Hollywood seasonal movie, it's awash with sentimentality and the good old capitalist spirit of giving and receiving. But director William Dear has too much experience to let it descend into mush.

Summary

Santa Claus loses control of his sleigh in tricky weather conditions and crashes into a passing car - and the resulting bump on the head leads to a total loss of memory. It is left to a youngster to help him beat the amnesia and deliver presents around the world in time for Christmas morning. Family comedy, starring Leslie Nielsen, Max Morrow, Tommy Davidson, Stephen Eckholdt and Robyn Lively. Includes 5 News Update at 7.10pm.
