      Rosana B Bem bonitinho, fofinho como todo filme de Natal deve ser, o diferencial fica por conta da criatividade, ou não, uma máquina jogada fora pelo Papai Noel, tão útil para as estripulias de duas garotas espevitadas… Muito fofo… No final de dezembro teve uma nevasca sem precedentes nos EUA, será que essa maquina foi responsável por ela também?!?!?! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review grace h Idk why but i love it Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Focused on two promising leads and a unique take on a Christmas themed movie. It does everything by the formula but lacks in organically progressing the character development leaving the message being told feeling rushed Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review jon c I completely missed this 20 years ago when this came out Maybe because it wasn't as big as other Disney channel original movies at the time It's one of the more shorter ones taking place around Christmas Basically two best friends Allie and Samantha want the best Christmas vacation and with the lack of snow in California they may have found a solution Turns out Santa clause has a small cottage where they live, he throws out a strange device and they both decide to take it home with them The discover it's a weather making machine that can make it rain, storm, make earthquakes etc Allie and Samantha come up with the idea of making their own snow day so they can finish their homework and get invited to a cute guy's party At first it seems like a miracle with school cancelled and a weatherman named Edwin finally making a name for himself as a meteorologist But problems arise with the snow reaching several inches, canceling Allie's father's flight to come home along with her other relatives, and potentially ruining Christmas for Santa Claus Edwin then decides to get greedy and plans to take the weather making device for himself So now they have to get the machine back and fix the weather to save the holidays A simple premise with a simple enough kid like charm to it Nothing too grand but still a nice time killer with a nice amount of cheese to it The Ultimate Christmas Present is more than just a snow day and we can all learn that Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Great Christmas movie from my childhood! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The early DCOM is typical and, for fun, not really ultimate, but it's a well thought out present to enjoy from these kinds. (B) (Full review coming soon - with better wording probably) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
