Holiday movie night: “Dear Santa”

Poor Amy Acker. She gets chased by so many monsters; she deserves good things. I’m not sure this is it.

Rich mom threatens to stop funding her rich 30-year-old daughter’s life unless she “figures it out” … or at least finds a man. Moms. Meanwhile, a little girl writes to Santa looking for a new mom; her mom died a year ago. So of course the rich woman stalks the girl and her father. Of course.

There’s a weird food fight. A catty woman fighting for an engagement ring. And the whole thing about finding a step-mother ASAP is weird. But somehow this was one of the most watchable holiday movies so far.
