The Christmas Clause Reviews
Yet another twist on the "It's a Wonderful Life" idea. This time Lea Thompson is feeling overwhelmed at Christmas as she is trying to balance her job, her kids, and her commitments. One day at the mall a Santa overhears her wish she had someone else's life, so he grants it to her.
The movie acts as though she is the only person suffering from this over Christmas and it is hard to sympathize with her struggle to find her way back.
