Ratings & Reviews
While navigating the road to success and fortune, book editor Susan Stone (Ally Walker) has become cynical and jaded, abandoning the youthful idealism and enthusiasm which propelled her forward in the first place. As a result, Susan has lost her personal and professional momentum, and is in danger of losing not only her job but also the love of her family. All this changes when a strange but adorable seven-year-old girl named Suzie (Hayden Panettiere) enters Susan's life, apparently with the express purpose of jolting the heroine back to humanity -- and guiding her toward the true love of her life. It may not be difficult to guess from the outset whom the ebullient "Suzie" really is. A typical but nonetheless enjoyable Christmas-season offering, the made-for-cable If You Believe first aired December 6, 1999 over the Lifetime network. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
A Different Kind of Christmas
The bane of the existence of city attorney Elizabeth Gates (Shelley Long) is the jovial, widowed former barber (Bruce Kirby) who has chosen to be a year-round Santa Claus, transforming his house into a permanent "North Pole" village and giving away free presents to needy children. Unfortunately, "Santa" is operating out of a residential zone, and thus is technically running an illegal commercial business. Elizabeth's problem is to evict the would-be Kris Kringle without endangering her mayoral campaign -- and to hide from her impressionable son Tommy (Nathan Lawrence) the real reason behind her dislike for "Santa." Meanwhile, a cynical big-city reporter (Barry Bostwick) follows the case with interest (his interest is mainly in Elizabeth, of course), and a local land developer goes into "Scrooge" mode as he schemes to tear down a landmark train station. Based on an actual 1989 court case, A Different Kind of Christmas was made for cable, airing originally over the Lifetime network on December 9, 1996. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
