Sweet Xmas romance, fans of love tales will like it
Jack (Tony Danza) and his partner Harry are experienced thieves. Its their profession. But, alas, at a mall, security guards catch them in the act and they have to run for their lives. Thinking quickly, Jack grabs a Santa costume and bags the money in a duffel. Even this is risky and the handsome robber ends up opening the mall doors early and throwing money in the air to escape. He hops a bus to who-knows-where. Ending up in a lovely small town called Evergreen, he is soon mistaken for the Santa hired to listen to children at a local tree farm, run by attractive widow Sarah (Lea Thompson) and her seventeen year old daughter, Noelle (Angela Goethals). About to decline, Jack notices the bank in town. Ho Ho Ho, maybe Evergreen can spare some cash. Initially disliking one another, Jack soon discovers he can be a good Santa and a good fill-in father for Noelle, who has typical teenage problems. In addition, Sarah is soon working her way into his affections and visa versa. Jack even has great advice for luring shoppers to the stores in Evergreen for the holidays! How will this affect Jack's plans to make off with the town's monetary holdings? This sweet Xmas romance has two fine, eye-catching performers in Danza and Thompson. Also nice are the setting, costumes, script and direction. Betty White shows up to enchant the audience, too. Therefore, steal away to view this one in December or any other time of the year.
