"Desperately Seeking Santa" follows the Hollywood rom-com formula well. Five stars for that. No spoiler here: the guy gets the girl. "Desperately Seeking Santa" isn't an indie-budget film either. There's a great soundtrack, great indoor cinematography, good dancing sequences and excellent costuming. The acting and casting is decent all around. I thought the film got better after the initial silliness of setting up the sexy Santa premise. Laura Vandervoort, who's done a ton of good television work, is a natural leading lady. If you want an award-winning, thought-provoking movie, this isn't it. If you want to have a family friendly, stress-free, entertaining 90 minutes, this is a good choice.
