    This is the feel good Christmas movie of all time. Anyone can use gifts and mistletoe to brighten the holiday. Not everyone would put a fugitive in a santa suit to escape arrest. Freed Astaire is astounding in multipke roles. Although it was a made-for tv movie, it has all the makings of a box-office smash. you need to see this movie.
