the year: 2010
the genre: rom-com
the cast: Doris Roberts (Mrs. Miracle/Merkle); Jewel Staite (Holly Wilson); Eric Johnson (Jake Finley); Tom Butler (J R Finley); Patricia Mayen-Salaza (Gloria Martinez); Lauren Holley (Lindy Lowe)
the plot: When Mrs. Miracle appears as a seasonal employee in the toy department at the financially troubled Finley’s Department Store, neither the store’s owners, nor the customers, have any idea of the events that are about to unfold. Just when it seemed Christmas might not come at all this year, Finley’s favorite employee proves they don’t call her Mrs. Miracle for nothing!
I liked the original Mrs. Miracle, but Mrs. Miracle is a bit more impish in this one and her ongoing battle to get the Scrooge-ish J.R. Finley in the Christmas spirit is fun to watch.
