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.
