A farm girl nurses a wounded reindeer she believes is one of Santa's, hoping to bring it back to health in time for Christmas. Her holiday spirit inspires those around her, something her disheartened father is having trouble understanding.

Ethan, a practical older brother, and adorable Hallie, who knows how to charm her way out of a difficult situation, are intent on spending Christmas with their parents, Catherine and Michael, and grandmother Lillian. As Ethan and Hallie embark on their adventure, almost nothing goes exactly as they planned. Complicating things is a smarmy businessman named Toney Boer, who has taken an interest in Catherine.

Ethan falls asleep while playing a home video of his parents, obviously on videotape, since it is 1991. When he wakes up in the morning, the TV is still showing a freeze-frame of his parents kissing. A video cassette would have shut off within a few minutes of freezing and would display only a blank screen or, if tuned to a broadcast, to a program. See more »
How's my favorite ex-mother-in-law and second lady of the American theatre?
Fine. And quite happy to see you. Though I can't say the same for your ex-wife, though you haven't even asked about her yet.

How can you watch a movie with Thora Birch and not just want to eat her up for being so cute. I am not referring to the lovely Thora in American Beauty, but the really cute one in this film.
She just wants Santa to get her parents back together. Her brother Ethan (Ethan Embry) doesn't believe in Santa, so he tries to help make his sister's wish come true with the help of the lovely Amy Oberer.
Now, I don't know what mom (Harley Jane Kozak) sees in Kevin Nealon, when her ex is Jamey Sheridan (Syriana, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent"), so he must have screwed up big time.
Anyway, Ethan comes through and all is well. Or, was it Santa (Leslie Nielsen)?
