Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Inspired by a shamelessly sentimental song, the storyline of this winsome TV movie follows lawyer Rob Lowe as he rediscovers the meaning of Christmas. He has a change of heart through his encounters with mechanic Hugh Thompson, music teacher Kimberly Williams and their son, Max Morrow, who is determined to buy his mommy some cherished red shoes before she succumbs to a fatal heart condition. Lowe also strives to save his marriage to Maria Del Mar, who abandons big business to substitute at Williams's school. 'Tis the season to be corny, and you won't find much that can top this mawkish, melodramatic mush.
