Comedy - A typical Disney live-action motion picture (sweet, unimaginative, and dull) with stale characters and lower-than-usual production values. One reason not to look forward to the holiday season.

Critic's Review Heading
Poor
I'll Be Home for Christmas represents the ultimate insult to a film-goer: a made-for-TV movie that has been dumped into theaters to rake in a few extra dollars before it slips onto video shelves, then debuts next year on ABC's The Wonderful World of Disney. Despite a carol-laden soundtrack and numerous actors in Santa costumes, there's not much holiday spirit evident in I'll Be Home for Christmas, and, what little there is gets smothered by the unbeatable combination of lead actor Jonathan Taylor Thomas' smugness and a feeble script. Only a masochist will get the intended feel-good experience out of this film. In fact, the movie is so bad that it doesn't deserve to be seen on television, let alone in a multiplex. Director Arlene Sanford helps to reinforce a sad truth: Disney's live-action division is creatively bankrupt.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
JONATHAN TAYLOR THOMAS stars as Jake Wilkinson, a self-absorbed college student, who, just days before Christmas awakens to find himself stranded in the middle of the California desert-wearing a Santa suit and a white beard glued to his face.

The butt of a pay-back by the football team who thinks he double-crossed them by not providing the correct answers to a finals exam, Jake has to find a way to get to New York by 6:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve-and catch up with his girlfriend Allie (JESSICA BIEL) who is on the road with the school stud Eddie (ADAM LA VORGNA)-or risk forfeiting the vintage Porsche his father (GARY COLE) promised if his son comes home for the holidays.

As Jake desperately hitchhikes his way east, everyone he meets unwittingly sets into motion a comedy of errors as they look to Santa for help and advice.
