Hunter Toys’ CEO has turned his father’s toy company into a profitable business. However, when he denies his staff their Christmas festivities, he finds himself turned into Kris Krandall, a man who is forced to work as Santa in a small business toy store. Starring Kevin Sorbo, Jodie Dowdall, Derry Robinson, Rosemary Dunsmore.
This film is a modern take on A Christmas Carol. Although Sorbo’s performance is great, my frustration lies more with the fantasy side of the story where, as the real Santa, his performance seemed out of place. I guess I would have preferred it to be more realistic. I have to give it credit for not following the standard Hallmark tendencies. This film has great acting, a strong story, and is low on romance. It is worth a watch.
