Nancy Taylor (Gabrielle Union – Running with Scissors, Bad Boys II) just wants one simple thing for Christmas this year. All she wants for Christmas is to meet a good man. She has had bad experiences with men previously. Nancy is divorced from the father of her children. Her ex-husband J-Jazzy (Charles Q. Murphy – Norbit, Night at the Museum) is a top-selling rapper but a lousy father and husband.
Her daughter (Khail Bryant – first film) hears mommy telling her friends about her Christmas wish, so when she goes to see Santa Claus (Morris Chestnut – G.I. Jane, Boyz n the Hood) she asks him to bring her mother a man for Christmas. Turns out Santa is Benjamin, a struggling songwriter, is the man that Nancy has been dreaming of.
While this might be a light and easy to watch film, it still isn't a good one. It is a charming story and while, pay attention ladies, Morris Chestnut is easy on the eyes, it is so predictable and in spots poorly acted that you won't be able to enjoy it as you should. The makers of this film wanted to create a heart-warming, romantic Christmas tale and instead they made bland, below average movie.
And lastly, to Terrence Howard and Queen Latifah – tsk, tsk, tsk.
