Our Score
Everybody Loves Raymond matriarch Doris Roberts returns as uncanny problem-fixer Mrs "Miracle" in this ultra-simplistic TV-movie sequel. Working in a struggling New York department store in the run-up to Christmas, she combines magic, meddling, and traditional values to hurriedly bring festive cheer to the emotionally needy souls who cross her path. A playful Roberts charms whenever she's on screen, but once again it's the beneficiaries of her kindly ways that dominate the contrived events. In this yet heart-warming offering, they are the shop's idealistic manager Eric Johnson and fashion designer's assistant Jewel Staite (Serenity), whose developing romance is sweet and engaging despite its predictability. Unfortunately, not all the cast share the pair's gentle appeal, with Lauren Holly, in particular, a pantomimic embarrassment as Staite's bitchy boss.

Summary

The kindly Mrs Merkle takes a job in the toy section of a financially struggling department store. She helps the downtrodden manager to enjoy a happy Christmas for once by making a success of the business and assisting him in his quest to find love. Family drama sequel, starring Doris Roberts, Eric Johnson, Jewel Staite and Lauren Holly.
