It's turning out to be a pretty rotten Christmas for the Saunders family. Having just moved to Edmonton from L.A., 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 Yuletide overbookings. Therefore, the Christmas shopping duties fall on Dad and the gloomy kids who have to fight Edmonton weather conditions to get to West Edmonton Mall. But when 12-year-old Brian and 6-year-old Mary find a satchel of money in the mall, things start looking up... that is, until the crooks who counterfeited the money start hunting them down!
Canadian Connection: Filmed in Edmonton, Alberta. Some cast members are Canadian.
A very enjoyable movie. Patrick Swayze is awesome!!!
What an AWESOME movie!! The guy who played the husband, (Mark Holik), what a hottie!! Makes me want to get married I'll say that much! Perhaps HE should have had Patrick Swayze's part, cuz then more chicks would have flocked into the theatres!
Even if you heard the reviews that it sucked, go check it out for a chance to stare at that man! Guaranteed we will see THAT fine specimen in hollywood PRONTO!
