Editorial Reviews

Sophie Kelly is a top-rated lawyer with three kids and a husband that take up all her time. All of her family and work stress comes to a chaotic halt at the shopping mall, days before Christmas, when she sees Santa and wishes for a different life. However, the grass is not always greener as a single, successful lawyer with her own firm and the most eligible bachelor vying for her attention. Freedom has its price as she realizes the sweet life is not so sweet and must race against time to find the true meaning of family and love before Christmas Day.

Yes, there are probably dozens of Christmas movies out there ripping off the "IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE" theme, but really, does anyone watch these things to see great film making. You know how it's going to end before it even starts. You know the main character is shallow in the beginning and sees the error of his/her ways by the end and you know that the Angel or whatever will make it right in the end. Come on, these movies are just supposed to make you feel good. This wasn't the best of those theme movies but it's not the worst. I say, watch it and then when it's over just say: "Aww, wasn't that cute."

This movie has a very good story line about being content with the life you have instead of wishing you had someone else's life. The one thing I want to mention is that the cover says, "Family Approved" and it really is not. The movie takes God's name in vain several times, characters say ass and hell, the main woman wears revealing clevage and short skirts, and there is a scene where a man in a towel is coming onto the main character to have sex with her. I am disappointed in the "Family Approved" seal that I have come to trust in choosing movies.

I thought this movie was adorable, it had a great message and lighthearted entertainment. I will watch over and over even when it's not the Christmas Season.

This movie is terrible! The final message is nice, but getting there is painful! Poor acting and attempt at special effects was really bad. Content for small kids is not appropriate. Don't waste your time.

This movie is a rehash of every other tacky Christmas movie that you've ever seen, cranked out in time for holiday audiences to spend money on. See it on cable if you must, but save your money for the tons of wonderful, uplifting and entertaining films with decent acting.

If you like this theme of holiday dreams coming true with valuable lessons learned, I'd highly recommend Holiday Switch, also available on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Holiday-Switch-Bret-Anthony/dp/B003X2P98K/ref=cm_pdp_rev_itm_title_2

I hate to pile on, but The Christmas Clause certainly was a disappointment. The whole "It's a Wonderful Life" is just boring and cliche. It's become the theme of hundreds of other Christmas movies. Frankly, I think audiences are becoming sick of it. It's fine to preach that people should appreciate their lives, but adult life is more complex than shown in these films. The Christmas Clause tries too hard to preach the virtues of family life, but instead comes across as unoriginal. Part of the problem is that the acting is lousy. Lea Thompson sounds like she's repeating her lines rather than engaged in emotional dialogue. I just couldn't get excited about it or the story - especially when there are so many other great Christmas movies to watch, like It's a Wonderful Life.

A cute take on It's a Wonderful Life, this is more on todays time with a questionable, Santas, part time job. Fun.
