It's the Christmas season. Connor is a struggling toy designer, he wanting to make timeless toys as opposed to flash-in-the-pan electronics which regardless seem to test well in focus groups. He wants to meet his girlfriend Holly's parents, Nick and Jessica, so that he can ask them for her hand in marriage. Holly has so far always made excuse after excuse why he can't meet them, they who live up north, but she realizes she can no longer put it off seeing as to Connor's intentions, he who she does want to marry.

Holly knows that it will be difficult enough to tell Connor this news, but that it will be even more difficult to tell him the fact that in marrying her, he will eventually take over the reigns as Santa. Holly wants to ease Connor slowly into all this news, but she admits she has nagging doubts that Connor will either want or be up to the responsibilities of being Santa, ...Written by
Even comparing this to the admittedly low bar set by other Christmas movies, this is just awful. A weak plot, poor acting (with the exception of Meredith Baxter Birney), and terrible effects. For example, when they're sitting on the roof in the snow, the snow bounces- because it's obviously cotton batting. And the shooting star flying through the sky? I could throw a flashlight and make a more convincing magic star.
My husband and I decided that Jesse Hutch looks like the love child of Seth McFarland and Christopher Knight. Laura Bell Bundy? I just kept waiting for her to yell "Boats! Boats! Boats!". I do have to say the Clauses did have a lovely ski lodge house.
This was just painful. Though i should rate this a 1 or 2, I'm giving it a 3, because it's Christmas and I'm feeling generous.
