Storyline

For the Christmas holidays, Buck Seger has been tasked with getting some reindeer from a game farm for the San Ernesto California Zoo. Sandy Brooks, an animal keeper at the zoo, is a lonely woman who uses the animals as a surrogate for human affection. Despite this, she detests Buck, who is continually pestering her to go out with him. In his task for the zoo, Buck, indulging his big game hunting passion, decides to get one of the reindeer from the wild instead. He inadvertently captures Buddy, one of Santa's new reindeer. Santa not only has come to San Ernesto to rescue Buddy, but also to teach Buddy to fly, all before Christmas Day. Santa can travel between the North Pole and any location in the world via mirrors. While in San Ernesto, Santa names himself Nick Snowden. To get Buddy back, Nick figures he has to get close to Sandy, a move that does not sit well with Buck. Nick manages to move into the boarding house where Sandy lives. Getting Buddy back is more difficult than Nick ... Written by Huggo

Great Christmas Movie for the whole family
20 December 2005 | by wendysgoodnewsSee all my reviews

This is an excellent movie shown on Family Channel for the whole family to watch. It is so nice to see a fun light hearted movie that has no cussing and no sex in it. We watched it a couple of times last year and already this year a couple more times and I am hoping to get the chance to watch it again. It is one of those movies that make you feel Christmas(y) and happy. I hope at some point they put it out on DVD so I can buy it and watch it all Christmas Season. Nick Snowden is just the all time cutest Santa trying to get back his missing reindeer with the help of a small boy with big ideas. Sandy Brooks is a naive zoo worker who plays the perfect part of prospective Mrs. Claus. This is truly a must see movie for everyone from the youngest to the oldest.
