Defending Santa (2013) Rated TV-PG

Santa goes on trial for mental competency in a small town. Starring Dean Cain, Jud Tylor, and John Savage.

Defending Santa is one of those typically sweet Christmas films that pepper our TV at this time of year. The film is a type of remake of Miracle on 34th Street, but this one falls short. The film tries to deliver the sweetness of a holiday film, and it does; however, it’s predictable and gives off a “been there, done that” feel. Some scenes don’t need to be there with the magical part of the season. I wish the chemistry and the script had worked well in this film, but they don’t. Even the actors, whom I usually enjoy watching, don’t make the film entertaining. This one is not worth a watch.
