Not as good as the original - Fell short on all counts...
on November 26, 2016
This remake cannot compare to the original. The changes to the script don't seem to work either. This is one of those movies that would be extremely difficult to remake into a better movie. The original cast, direction, writing, set...all worked together to make a classic. This movie fell short on all counts. No feeling, no warmth, no charm and the actors didn't do justice to their rolls...all but Mcdermott. Don't bother with this and watch the original 1947 film with Maureen O'Hara, Natalie Wood, John Payne & Edmund Gwenn as santa.
