Movie Info

In this holiday-themed comedy, Danny (Josh Zuckerman) is a teenage boy who doesn't always have the good sense to ignore the bad advice of his Uncle Nick (Bryan Cranston), a good-natured small-time con man. The night before Christmas, Danny and Uncle Nick make an amazing discovery -- Santa Claus has designed a new, state-of-the-art sleigh, and Danny and Nick can't resist the temptation to take it out for a ride. But once they head out, the question becomes: can they get the sleigh back in one piece -- and in time for Santa to deliver his toys? Produced for The Disney Channel, 'Twas the Night first aired on December 7, 2001.

Audience Reviews for 'Twas the Night

"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston took a part of Disney Channel's early times in this creative, but somewhat sort-of poorly-written holiday flick that was picking out small presents that contained rehashed elements from a couple of Christmas classics than trying to be more Christmassy heartening and balanced with the creativity. (B-) (Full review coming soon)

This is a great television film. I love the concept of Santa being able to stop time not only as a gimmick for the plot, but it actually makes sense, that would be the only way Santa could do it in one night and it would explain why nobody sees him. All the POV's were done brilliantly and the plot was brisk and fun.
