Everyone, especially children, knows that the holiday season is a time for miracles. However, six-year-old Susan Walker (Mara Wilson) has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle...Santa Claus. This holiday season, Susan is going to receive the most precious gift of all: something to believe in. And she's about to discover that miracles do occur...The story relates the arrival of one Kris Kringle (Richard Attenborough), a department store Santa who believes he's the genuine article, and who subsequently turns a skeptical child's world upside-down. When Kris is put on trial to prove he's Santa, the youngster -- and everyone around her -- learns the true meaning of faith, the importance of family... and that even today, we all need something to believe in.




  • Terrible

    Never should’ve been made. Mara Wilson is terrible, the whole thing was terrible. All actors, the whole script. just trash. never been so embarrassed for a production company.

    One of my favorite movies. Saw it in the theater on Thanksgiving Day when it came out and have watched it every year since. A classic. The scenery and costumes are among my favorites of all time.
  • Former favorite, but pushes an agenda

    This was one of my favorite movies growing up. I never saw the original, so to be perfectly fair, I can’t compare it to that. Instead, I’ll give my thoughts on the remake only. As a child, I loved this film, but as an adult it doesn’t sit right with me. I’m an atheist, and this movie portrays skeptical people as misguided, rigid, and cold. The comparison between belief in Santa and belief in God is obvious, with the filmmakers showing a clear bias towards one side. At the end of the film, the protagonist is vindicated because of “In God We Trust” present on US currency. It’s stated that God is backed by the US government and you get an overwhelming sense that the antagonist, while never directly stated, is an atheist (who often refer to themselves as nonbelievers). It’s unsettling to see skeptics portrayed as rude, unfeeling people with, to borrow a phrase from the film, “grumpy faces.” While the film is well made, I encourage people to think critically about its message. If you’re not sure where to start, ask your friendly neighborhood nonbeliever. They’d likely be more than happy to share their experiences with you.

    Great movie but why is the HD version so high? Please lower the HD price for this movie.

    I'm not sure why there are so many violently bad reviews of this movie. It's not supposed to be Citizen Kane; it's a sweet, sentimental family Christmas movie designed to invoke holiday spirit and warm fuzzies, and it does just that. The original is, of course, incomparable, but this remake is charming in its own right, and worth seeing.

  • Wonderful Family movie

    By OUfan1981
    We watch this every year on Thanksgiving evening. It's a family tradition. Probably one of the best performances ever by Dylan McDermott, Elizabeth Perkins and the wonderful Mara Wilson. You couldn't have cast a better little girl in the part! She's just extraordinary!
