I may be in the minority, but I absolutely LOVE this movie! There is only one minor detail that could (and probably should)have been left out. That aside, this is a wonderful Christmas movie that will warm your heart. Mara Wilson is incredible as Susan, and gives a great performance. The two things I love most about this movie are (1)It's full of vivid colors (2)The elements of romance between Mara's mother and Brian (Dylan McDermott), who plays her on-again, off-again boyfriend. The story isn't just about a girl whose mother taught her not to believe in Santa Claus. It's also about her mom, wanting to trust and love someone again. Judging from the other reviews, I'm the only one, but I definitely recommend this film.
