The Santa Incident


When ten-year-old Daniel and his little sister Sophia stumble upon a dazed, white-bearded gentleman named Nick, they immediately recognize him as Father Christmas and will do anything to help him get back in his sleigh again. But first they must rely upon the help of their mom, the town’s sheriff and the North Pole to outwit two bumbling government agents determined to spoil the holidays for the masses. Starring Greg Germann (“Ally McBeal”) and Ione Skye (Fever Pitch), The Santa Incident is a charming holiday adventure the entire family will love.

Dove Review

After Santa is shot down by a jet’s missile, he befriends a couple of kids who help him complete his toy making until his elves can rescue him. Government agents track down Santa and believe him to be a threat to national security. In the end, the kids help Santa reunite with the elves and save Christmas.

This is a fun, light-hearted romp that will have your family laughing along with Santa as he thwarts the Government agent’s plans. There is a bit of slapstick violence but nothing too rough. Due to some mild language issues, we have awarded “The Santa Incident” our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12 and over.
