Movie Reviews

Cute holiday film, but it gets cheesy
D. J. Nardi | Washington, DC | 11/22/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Around the holiday season, every TV channel seems to show yet another movie about somebody saving Christmas. Once Upon a Christmas / Twice Upon a Christmas has the benefit of being at least a bit original/different. In the film, Santa's two daughters, Kristin and Rudolpha, alternatively try to save and destroy Christmas. The movie doesn't focus so much on jolly St. Nick himself, but rather the naughty and very nice daughters.

However, this movie isn't going to make it into the holiday classics. The acting is decent, but not great. In fact, the movie seems to spend way too much time with Rudolpha, the evil sister/villain, whose acting was over the top, rather than developing the rest of the characters. Kristen Claus by contrast comes across as a bit too pure and kindly.

The film was made-for-TV, and definitely looks it. The production quality looks more like a late 1980s movie than something that came out only a few years ago. In fact, when I was watching it, I was sure it came out much earlier.

Other scenes were just flat out corny. The call to Donald Trump didn't really advance the story and wasn't particularly funny. The movie doesn't even use the real Donald. The ending came a bit too magically and suddenly (I don't want to spoil it, but you'll see what I mean).

If you like the The Santa Clause-type movies, you'll probably like Once Upon a Christmas / Twice Upon a Christmas. It's sweet, Christmas-y, etc. - just don't expect too much."
