This is the worst movie I ever remember seeing, and I've seen some pretty bad ones in my time... believe me. The acting isn't just bad, it's abysmal. Ludicrous. It's like the makers tried to make this film so it would be as awful and boring and silly as humanly possible. Caulkin's "Rich" isn't great, but it's a heckuva lot better than this drek. The people who made this ought to be banned from the film industry. The only reason this could have been made was for money: don't let it steal yours! Avoid this movie like a disease! Why?

Because it sucks like a black hole.

Alternate Versions

After the movie was released on video in 1998,it was shown on Fox Family Television during the holiday season and is shown every holiday season on that network. The version on television features two scenes not on the home video version. They are:

  • Someone knocks at the door which Sgt. Mooney would put a hole in later. A maid opens the door and it is a package delivery man. She says "Oh,another one!" After she closes the door and puts the package down,Richie gets out of the box. Now we know how he got in,and we know what present it was that Reggie says he found torn open.
  • After Richie finds his parents at the orphanage,instead of going to outside the Rich Manor,we go inside where Mr and Mrs. Rich,Cadbury,Prof. Keenbeen and Mrs. Peabody from the orphanage are sitting by the fire. Richie come up and gives them each a present. Mr and Mrs. Van Dough appear with Reggie and
  • Reggie is forced to apologize to Richie for making the sleigh malfunction. Mrs. Van Dough says "Kids,you know. You never know what they'll do" Richie gives them presents as well and Prof. Keenbean tells everybody to listen. He can hear people singing outside. They all retreat outdoors. Then the scene from the video version starts outside.
