The basic plot is about two kids, Ethan & Hallie played by Ethan Embry (Dutch) and Thora Birch respectively. All they want for Christmas is to spend the holiday with their divorced parents (Harley Jane Kozak & Jamey Sheridan) and hopefully get them back together. But their mom is all set to marry snotty yuppie Tony played by SNL alum Kevin Nealon.
So they not only have to find a way to break up the new relationship, but also find a way to get their parents to rekindle their old flame. Along the way they enlist the aid of Santa claus played by Leslie Nielsen. The movie also features Lauren Bacall as the kid's grandmother.
It's pretty standard formula stuff. but the kids are cute and mean well and there's some genuine sincerity in the movie, if not a bit of holiday magic. You could do much worse than this if you're looking for a holiday film to watch with the kids.
let me just tell you I have this thing for christmas movies and this one makes the top of my list. So these kids parents get a divorce and they do everything possible to get them back together...and if you want to know if they get back together you better buy this movie!! and there is also a really cute young love story mixed in there and its christmas in new york!!! This movie is awesome!!
