Saving Christmas



In this outrageous family comedy starring Ed Asner, a gang of brainy young kids launches a bumbling investigation to reveal the truth about Santa Claus. Spoiler alert: he’s real!

Dove Review

Is Santa Claus real? Only if you believe! This cute movie about believing in Santa features Danny, his sister Jennifer and friends who want to know the truth. Along the way, the group has a run-in with bullies and others making fun of them—and some of the friends have doubts of their own.

There are many wonderful lessons in this story. Lessons about the effects of losing a parent, bullying, making fun of others, posting things on internet media without that person’s permission, and believing in something. Christmas is the time of year when family love is celebrated, and anything can happen if you believe.

The Dove Family-Approved Seal for all ages is awarded to “Saving Christmas.”
