Jake is a young college student who gets through life scamming and scheming others. After making up lies to miss going home for Christmas, Jake’s father offers him his classic red Porsche if Jake makes it home at 6 P.M. on Christmas. The only hitch is that Jake is left in the middle of the desert in a Santa suit after a prank is pulled and he has to figure out a way to make it home in time.


I was able to get the DVD for a cheap price and watched it as part of the movies I watch every year for the holidays. The movie is a decent Disney live-action film starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas in the day of his Home Improvement time. The best thing I can compare it to is Planes, Trains, and Automobiles but not nearly as good or funny.
