Wish Upon a Christmas

A Charming Fantasy

A widower’s son asks Santa in a letter for someone special for his dad. Meanwhile, his Dad’s old high school sweetheart, now a successful corporate actuary, comes to town to shut down his factory and the major employer in the charming old-fashioned town. With a little help from a distinguished old man with a white beard mysteriously come to town looking for a lost bauble, everyone gets their happy ending. This is one of the better entries of the season, thanks to some charming performances by the main actors. Aaron Ashmore and the young actor who plays his son are particularly winning. Amelia is well played as well, as is Mr. Tomptey (alias Santa Claus). The only weak link is Allan Thicke who has an unnecessary role as her father. He delivers his lines like he has been nipping at the eggnog one too many times. **8 out of 10 stars**
