Ray Richmond of Variety called the film "a holiday grab bag of improbability
                                                                                      Release date        12 December 1999
stacked atop improbability." [1] However, other reviewers say the predictability is
what makes it a good Christmas classic.[2]                                             Running time               90 minutes
