Family-Friendly Christmas Movies, holiday gifts

'Tis the season to watch holiday movies!

We have a family tradition of watching Christmas movies every year.  It's a fun tradition and we really look forward to it.  We recently watched Santa Fake which is now available on DVD.

A classic Christmas movie full of holiday music, sentimental romance, family-friendly comedy, and colorful holiday spirit, SANTA FAKE brings holiday cheer with top-notch musical numbers and brilliant performances by a delightful cast that will enchant the whole family.
Pat Keeley (Damian McGinty, “Glee;” Celtic Thunder), an undocumented Northern Irish immigrant has made his way to NYC where he is taken in, unwittingly, by a crime boss (John Rhys-Davies). Asked to deliver two mysterious briefcases, naïve Pat in a panic ends up in the wrong destination: Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Santa Fe gives him a home and a job as the shopping mall Santa Claus, allowing him to hide in plain sight from both the authorities and the gangsters he is trying to evade. As Pat gets wrapped up deeper into the spirit of Christmas and his role as Santa Claus, he finds that the phony white beard and big red suit are more than just a handy disguise, but instead his real destiny.
SANTA FAKE features an all-star cast including Damian McGinty (“Glee;” Celtic Thunder), Heather Morris (“Glee”), John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the RingsIndiana Jones), Judd Nelson (“Empire;” The Breakfast ClubSt. Elmo’s Fire), Jeff Fahey (“Lost;” Alita: Battle AngelMachete), Tony Amendola (The Legend of Zorro; “Stargate;” Blow; Annabelle), Gary Farmer (Dead Man; “Longmire;” “The Red Road”), Soledad Saint Hilaire (Real Women Have CurvesOcean’s Thirteen), and Pancho Moler (“Ray Donovan;” “American Horror Story”).

Also on its way in Santa’s sleigh, as companions to the film, are the EP “Songs of SANTA FAKE” by Damian McGinty, “SANTA FAKE: The Movie Soundtrack,” and the children’s picture book: SANTA FAKE: You Are Never Alone at Christmas, which will be available in e-book and print.

Not all Christmas movies are going to be your favorite.  This one unfortunately wasn't mine.  The trailer looked pretty interesting (I'm Irish and love a good yarn), but the film was very slow going and just didn't keep my kids' attention.  We're used to more slap-stick comedy like Home Alone, where you're drawn into the film from the beginning.  

There were some good songs from Damian McGinty, but we just didn't get into this one as I had expected.    Maybe if you're a Damian McGinty fan you will appreciate it more.  You'll have to judge for yourself.
