Audience Reviews for The Christmas Star
Sep 06, 2007Ed Asner's character escapes prison and convinces some kids that he's Santa Claus. He has it planned to steal some money and use the children to help him do the job. The movie is more magical than it sounds and since I grew up with it, I think it's a Holiday Classic.Jim W Super Reviewer
Jun 09, 2007Great Christmas film where fuzzy-faced Ed Asner escapes from prison by stealing a Santa costume, and then is mistaken for the real Santa Claus by a group of kids. He enlists their help to find the cash his dead partner stashed away after a robbery. Ed turns from a crusty criminal to a warm-hearted man, whilst helping the kids with some of their problems. A story of redemption, done with a bit of humour.Lafe F Super Reviewer
Mar 31, 2007The young star looks an awful lot like Barret Oliver, although they do not list the child star's name in the credits -- A great story too!Tom E Super Reviewer
