The plot for Santa Baby was surprisingly deeper than I originally thought. Mary Class is the daughter of Santa and she's more than just your average independent woman. She has a job and a boyfriend. Talk about your juggling skills! Plus apparently last year, she got the North Pole in shape and delivered presents. Not sure why Santa dropped the ball, but maybe I should have watched the first movie before this one. Maybe Netflix should have helped me out.
The story is, Santa doesn't feel like doing his job again, and Mary goes back, but Santa's got a new assistant and she's trouble. Spoiler alert: she's an elf that wants to be Santa.
Posted this to show that they put Santa's mic on under a very figure hugging sweater.
Also to show the moment this movie went from cutesy to Single White Female.
Santa comes back from a drum circle. Santa is in loose flowing robes. I do not approve of these wardrobe choices.
On no one's Christmas list will you find the item "Want to see Santa in small white shorts."
This dog eats stew at the table. Immediately, I want the movie to be about him.
Mary owns a porcelain figure of a deer in a suit, lounging in a chair and drinking wine. This is horrible judgement and Teri's case for North Pole management just gets better and better.
One thing this movie has in spades is montages. Just tons of montages. Here's a montage of Luke playing hockey....
Here's a montage of Mary just trying to have it all and make a teddy bear....
And a montage of Teri and Luke making cookies and having just a delightful time doing it....
It turns out Teri's a bad elf who is immediately guilty when confronted. That being said, her jacket is fabulous.
Meanwhile in less stellar jackets, Mary and Santa are going to deliver toys with less precision than a bitter FedEx worker.
Lessons were learned, lives were juggled. Mary does significant damage to someone's innocently parked SUV. Because that's a Christmas present everyone wants.
So here's the lesson we take away from this: When a problem arises, just watch the first movie and see how you did it there. Then repeat. Hashtag it later with the word, Christmas.
