PLOT:

from Hallmark:

Christine Taylor (“The Brady Bunch Movie,” “Zoolander”) and Christopher Wiehl (“Jericho,” “Moonlight & Mistletoe”), star in “Farewell Mr. Kringle,” a heartwarming Hallmark Channel Original Movie about a skeptical journalist who is assigned to chronicle the 50th anniversary of Kris Kringle, a Santa Claus in the town of Mistletoe. As her involvement in the town grows, she begins to open up to the enchantment of Christmas and some other wonders of the season.

After 50 years, Mistletoe’s Santa Claus is hanging up his hat and Anna Walls (Christine Taylor), a magazine writer, is assigned to find out what makes this Santa tick. Having tragically lost her husband on Christmas Eve, Anna has become a nonbeliever. But with the help of Mark Stafford (Christopher Wiehl), a former cutthroat divorce lawyer turned compassionate bed and breakfast owner, she finds there is something magical about this particular Santa.

Through various conversations with the townspeople, Anna quickly discovers how much Kris Kringle means to the small town, and how much Christmas means to Kris Kringle. And having lost his wife years before in an automobile accident on the week of Christmas, he honors his wife by being Santa Claus all year long; therefore, he is the perfect person to show Anna the true meaning of Christmas! He brings so much joy and happiness to the town that they changed the name from Summerland to Mistletoe and renamed all the local shops and streets. Through his benevolence and altruism, he brings Christmas magic to everyone. All the while Mark recaptures more than just Anna’s Christmas spirit!

"Farewell Mr. Kringle" is being produced by Larry Levinson Productions. Larry Levinson, is the executive producer. Brian Gordon and Jim Wilberger are the producers. Kevin Connor ("The Wish List") is directing from a script written by Robert Tate Miller ("Secret Santa").




Movie Review:

Christine Taylor stars in this movie. She is best known for her role as Marsha Brady in the Brady Bunch Movies. She was absolutely perfectly suited for the role! I think she will be a great leading actress in this sweet Hallmark Holiday Movie.

Christopher Wiehl is well known to Hallmark fans from another Christmas Movie... Moonlight & Mistletoe, with Candace Cameron Bure. I was surprised they casted him for another Holiday Movie, however, I enjoyed him in M&M - so I'm sure we will like him in this, too!

  1. Thank you for posting this. I am so glad I came across your blog. I really liked this movie! It made me cry like a baby on the scene when Kris tells them that if no one is at the town square when he goes by, to not stop, but just keep driving. Last year was my family's first Christmas without my Dad, and that scene reminded me of him.
