I Have Reviewed OVER 500 "Christmas Films and Specials". Please BEWARE Of films and specials with just one review! For instance When "It's a POSITIVE" chances are that the reviewer was involved with the production. "If its Negative" then they may have a grudge against the film for whatever reason. I am fare about these films.

Here we see a replacement Santa Claus being sought and the humble Father Lloyd Court (Arnold Pinnock) has been picked out to carry out the highly important task.

However Lloyd is far from happy with his sudden elevated status and is soon accidentally wreaking havoc at the North Pole.

This film starts off great. The first 45 minutes were wonderful. Then the rest of the film the cast seems to be rushing their performances. The greatness this film promises dies out rather quickly the 45 minute mark.

The ending was a rip-off of the much better film "The Santa Clause"
