Our Score: 3 out of 5 stars
There is something about Hallmark Original Movies that just work over the holiday season. The films are cheesy and the acting is decent at best but we still watch them. Some are good and others are a waste of time. This one is cute and deserves a watch. The story is not terrible and the characters are relatively likable, except for Greg Germann’s character Erickson. If you can get past him, this is a cute holiday film for the family.
The story follows what happens when Santa’s sleigh is shot down while flying through restricted military airspace. Santa lands on Earth and is rescued by two kids and takes refuge with them and there mother from two Homeland Security agents. The agents believe that Santa and his “operation” are extraterrestrial. It is up the kids and Santa’s elves to help him return to the North Pole to save Christmas before it is too late.
