Christmas In Wonderland

"It's turning out to be a pretty rotten Christmas for the Saunders family. Having just moved to a new city from Los Angeles, they have no friends, no money and, with the exception of the bright-eyed Mary, no Christmas spirit. To make matters worse, their mother is stuck in L.A., stranded by airline overbookings. So, the Christmas shopping duties fall on Dad and the gloomy kids. Things start looking a bit more like Christmas when 12-year old Brian and 6-year old Mary find a satchel of money at the local mall and they launch a Yuletide shopping spree...that is, until the crooks who counterfeited the money chase them through the mall packed with holiday shoppers."

I really liked this movie. Of course, I enjoy most Christmas movies. You need to be able to get in to the Christmas spirit and forget that a lot of what happens in movies could never happen in a million years in order to really enjoy this one though, but if you can do that then - if you enjoy Christmas movies - you will enjoy this movie.

It looks like a fun movie. I watched the trailer and it kinda reminds me of the "Home Alone" movies. I loved those movies. LOL

I was surprised to see that Patrick Swayze was in this movie. Must have been one of his last movies he made. RIP Patrick.

I'd want to see it just because of Patrick Swayze, but this one isn't on Netflix, either. :( I'll keep my eyes open.

Reminds me of Home Alone, too. ;)

Yeah, it's kind of like Home Alone in the West Edmonton Mall for most of the movie.
