12 Days of Christmas Movies - Day 10

"On the 10th day of Christmas, my TV gave to meeee...NICK FREAKING ZANO!!!"
Thanks to ABC Family's Desperately Seeking Santa, I got to see my obsession, Nick Zano, in a cheesy Christmas TV movie.  It was a Christmas miracle, I tell ya! wasn't awful!  It wasn't great but it wasn't awful.  How could it be when this guy is in this hat?
 Plus he dances!!!
Ok, the dancing and original music was not good.  But the rest of it was pretty good so I excused the dancing and the music.  There was some bad acting but the two leads, the aforementioned Zanooooohh and Laura Vandervoort, did just fine. Actually the story was pretty dang weak too.  Ugh.

The story is this:  Mall manager Jennifer (Vandervoort) needs to boost her sales numbers or her mall will get shut down and she won't get a big promotion.  Isn't that always the way?!?!  She decides to have a search for a sexy Santa instead of the same old, big belly, bearded type.  Because the holidays are all about competition!  But it's ok...Zano shows up and wins the competition.  Zano's character, David, works at the family restaurant but is also studying to be an EMT and then a doctor.  David's dad thinks he should be focused more on school and less on being a sexy, dancing Santa.  David entered the competition for the prize money, which he uses to hire a lawyer to help the family fight some big development that is going to buy up the whole neighborhood for some new building.  Convoluted?  Yes.  But who cares?!?! 

Dancing Zano!!!

She's pretty too, I guess:
She has the best eyebrows!
So, naturally, it all works out.  Jennifer is offered the promotion but passes on it in order to save her mall from closing as well as saving the neighborhood where David's family's restaurant is.  The plot actually happens in the last half of the movie and it's a blink and you'll miss it situation so don't even bother looking for it.  I mean, all I want for Christmas is you:
Oops! How did this get in here?!?!
