Its almost Christmas, so naturally, its time to see what holiday themed selections you can find in the queue. In an odd power play by Netflix, you can watch Santa Baby 2 anytime you want, but Santa Baby is still unavailable. That being said, I have not seen the original, so I may be missing out on important story information. Maybe.
This was also a ABC Family original movie that premiered on December 13, 2009. I didn’t tune in. Chances were I was making fun of this movie instead….
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.
Mary throws fancy parties with tons of those little lights you put on Christmas trees.
And then her dad and his jazz trio show up to blow some tunes.
I’ve never hired my dad and his group to play any corporate events, but I’d certainly never kick him off stage. Especially since now its just a bass player and a saxophonist.
Being the avant garde musician he is, he wouldn’t have much credence if he wasn’t thrown in jail at least once.
Two vests in this scene and no acting is going on. Think about that.
Mary’s boyfriend and ex North Pole postal carrier has this look on his face the entire movie. Case in point, he just learned that there’s puppies waiting for him back home.
Santa’s assistant Teri is sort of the North Pole’s version of Tina Fey. She’s trying to keep order in a place that’s run by incompetant cartoonish versions of people. So far, I’m on her side.
