Synopsis


Prancer
If you know the Clement Clark Moore poem, you'll know that Prancer is one of Santa Claus' "eight tiny reindeer." When 9-year-old Rebecca Harrell, who still believes in Santa despite the remonstrations of her parents and the taunts of her peers, stumbles across the selfsame Prancer in a remote part of the forest, no one will believe the girl. Later on, Harrell's no-nonsense father Sam Elliot comes across a wounded reindeer, he feels it his duty to put the suffering animal out of his misery. The deer, of course, is Prancer, and it magically vanishes before Elliot's startled eyes. Harrell nurses the deer back to health in secret, with the help of kindly doctor Abe Vigoda and her troublesome older brother John Joseph Duda. Harrell is determined to contact Santa and let him know where Prancer is, but her efforts only result in public humiliation for her father. But this is a Christmas film, and the spirit of goodwill is contagious by fadeout time, even transforming town-recluse Cloris Leachman into a warm-hearted social animal. Filmed in Indiana, Prancer isn't quite a classic, but it's perfect midwinter videocassette entertainment. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Very heartwarming story about a little girl who finds an injured reindeer in the woods and tries to take care of it secretly from her father. The actress playing the little girl is very good in this role as is Sam Elliott who plays her crusty father. The hook in the story is that the girl believes this reindeer is actually Santa's reindeer Prancer - hence the name of the movie.

    I finally found this on DVD. I have always loved this movie since the year it came out. I saw it in the theater as a child. The story is very touching and warms the heart. It is a great movie about a young girl who is very courageous and determined to save Prancer. She faces many obstacles and goes the extra mile.

    This movie is by far one of my favorite Christmas movies. It has such a good message of hope and togetherness. It's sad, it's happy plus Sam Elliot is in it so it makes it so much better. The movie makes you feel cozy and makes you feel the magic of Christmas. So curl up on the couch with a cup of cocoa and a cozy blanket cause you are in for a treat.

    I originally viewed this movie years ago when it was first released and took my children to see it. Now, I have grandchildren and when I saw the movie in the bin at Best Buy, I snagged it on the way out of the to purchase another product. I enjoyed it as much with my grandson as I did with my children. Great movie to add to the Christmas movie list.

    My family has been watching this movie at Christmas for years. It's one of the movies that slip's thru the cracks becouse all the other Christmas movies out there, Prancer is well worth the watch if you have never seen it and who knows it just might become your Christmas move each year.

    This is an older movie that is charming for Christmas. Focusing on a small town and a young girl, it is appealing and appropriate for all ages. It is not as high tech as today's movies, but it is worth viewing for its simple clean messages.

    This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I've always wanted to own in, but being from the 80's, it's been hard to get my hands on a DVD. I was so excited to spot it in the bargain bin at Best Buy for only a few bucks! You can't beat that!
