Prancer: A Christmas Tale

The story is less consistent and at times feels more like a scenic sleigh ride. Half Christmas fairy tale and half family drama. The rocky relationship between Gloria's parents and Bud's constant clashes with his two adult children comes and goes before being resolved a bit too neatly. While Bud and Gloria's pursuit of Prancer relies on a lot of exposition. A stronger villain would've made things more interesting, as would've making Gloria's uncle Gerald (Aaron McCusker) a bit more devious. But anyone looking for some throwaway fun to help the turkey go down could do worse than add this to their Christmas watch list.

James Cromwell is the standout in this better than average tale of a mysterious reindeer that appears to reveal itself to people that are requiring some extra guidance to regain their holiday hearts. Beautifully shot, warming musical score, and great chemistry between grandpa Cromwell and his granddaughter, Gloria (Darcy Ewert). Cromwell works great with kids, animals, and pulls this film through some poorly written subplot with a villain hunter that is not sure it should be comical or menacing.

Before midnight the northern chill left the place, the wind ceased, and a sweet-aired calm fell upon all things. The rustics of old England long ago brought to New England a tale which I love to believe, that at midnight before Christmas the cattle kneel in adoration in their stalls. So in this town of strange contrasts, which is so old and so new, it seemed to me as if at midnight all nature knelt in adoration. Of what went on within palace or hovel I know little, but without the air renewed its kindly warmth and from every garden rose upon the air a gentle incense of flowers. Here poinsettias flaunted red involucres that were brave with the color of the season and there the dark green of English ivy fretted the walls with close-set leaves. Chrysanthemums held up pink and yellow and white blooms to the silver light and sent out the medicinal smell of their leaves as you brushed by them.
