    I really feel I am being to generous giving this film 2 stars since it really was one dimensional with not much going for it. The story of young girl longing for a mum & the gorgeous mannequin (Olivia Newton John) comes alive & touches all the families heart. Very corny & sentimental this Hallmark TV Movie I'm sure will appeal to some. I found it rather flat & forgettable.

    Classic, Christmas isn't the same without it! This generation won't understand, but if you grew up in the 90's Mom For Christmas has meaning and fond memories.

    Overly sentimental Christmas fare. This telemovie plays out like a retread of the Andrew McCarthy/ Kim Cattrall comedy, Mannequin. Perhaps this is good for undiscerning children, but I found it rather corny and predictable.

    Yes it's really cheesy and the acting isn't great, however, it's a childhood favorite of mine. Disney won't sell it though unless you join their movie club - you can't even find it on Netflix or anywhere else I've seen. Who knows why they're trying to keep this one under lock and key...

    Touching film. I will not say much more, because that is all that is needed to be said about this great film. It takes heart to have a mom for christmas when you really don't have one at all. This was great storytelling!

    Cute Christmas movie, reminiscent of the Pygmalion myth.
