Wonderful movie!
27 October 2002 | by jbdabneySee all my reviews

I LOVED this movie! It's a very enjoyable, feel-good movie, and it lifts my spirits every time I watch it! It has become one of my "Christmas classics", like the original "Miracle on 34th Street". Mimi Rogers was *excellent*. Enuka Okuma as her friend, Stella Stevens as her mother, Rob Stewart as her romantic interest, and Marla Maples as her (sort-of) competition, were all very enjoyable to watch. I hope more people get to see it and enjoy it as I have.
