The setups for Christmas movies don’t get much more convoluted than the one for 2011’s TV movie Dear Santa. A spoiled rich woman gets a vague ultimatum from her parents to “make something of her life” before Christmas, otherwise they’ll cancel her credit cards. Does she get a job? Go straight to volunteer work? Nope! She finds a little girl’s letter to Santa asking him to find a wife for her widowed father. and tries to win him over. Oh and also the guy owns a soup kitchen, which she starts working at. She then tries to marry the father. Surely that’s exactly what her parents had in mind! Wouldn’t she pretty much have satisfied the request once she went to work at the soup kitchen?
