Review Date 2/20/2018 PLEASE BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. I HAVE OVER 400 REVIEWS OF "CHRISTMAS RELATED FILMS & SPECIALS" WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN. Now Someone keeps reporting my reviews. I guess they are jealous because I do tell the truth. I want to point out that I never make snide remarks about actors weight or real life sexual orientation. If there acting is terrible or limited "I talk about that". If a story is bad "I will mention that" So why am I being "picked on"? IMDB? When one of my reviews gets deleted IMDB will not even tell me what someone found offensive. Well on to this review. This film a man wins a sizeable amount of money. Not Lotto money but sizeable. His finance wants him to save it or spend some of it on their future wedding. She gets mad when she finds out he has been spending the money being a secret Santa. This whole is built upon the premise that its "Better to give than receive". The film works and its not perfect but it's not a time waster. This is one of the better Television Christmas movies
This is a pretty good TV movie. Baxter wins $50,000 and decides to do some good with it during the holiday season. He remains anonymous because he's a nice guy and just wants to see people happy. Along the way he meets a few different people, specifically a single mom and her son. Everyone isn't thrilled about Baxter's giving though and conflict arises. The male lead's acting was solid. Kinda reminds me of Sam Jaeger. Everyone else was okay, but he and the movie plot were good enough to make me want to stick it out. There was some realistic conflict in the movie which I liked. I'd recommend it.
Unfortunately it's ruined by a bad child actor who was given an unlikable character. Am I supposed to find the disobedient kid who blackmails someone doing something nice, cute? Because no, I hate that kid. Maybe his acting sucks so much because he hates being that kid. Anyway, there are better movies out there, but this one is okay in a pinch.
Loved the story of a lottery winner ($50,000) suddenly deciding to help pay off a stranger's store card balance - we'd do the same in similar circumstances. This snowballed into further anonymous charitable acts. Unfortunately it veered off to a predictable love story. The girlfriend who appeared to be a little nasty, and an older woman whose son he befriends. Unfortunately the son, I think, has a disability (similar to Jimmy Clitheroe - growth issues). I thought he was little different, especially to have braces on his teeth at such a seemingly young age. But the story does progress with the hullabaloo of the anonymous acts of kindness and this gives the film the warm, feelgood factor
12 Days of Giving is a syrupy gulp that could seriously escalate a diabetic attack. Baxter Billings is a photographer who has recently become engaged and he wins $50,000. Instead of using that money for his wedding and squirrelling it away as a nest egg for the future. Baxter decides to act as a secret Santa and give the money away to those that are unfortunate or do not have enough money. This includes people who cannot afford to buy presents from the department store so Baxter pays over $4000 so various families can have Christmas presents. His generosity in his small town leads to other people acting kindly to strangers. Christmas shopping is less of a scrum and maybe people have discovered the true meaning generosity, giving and the festive season. Baxter's fiancée is not too pleased when she finds about Baxter's spending spree. Do not worry she is presented as shallow and not so nice from the word go. Baxter does come across a nice widow and her young son and Baxter falls for her. I watched this with my son who found it rather cheesy and creepy. What was the deal of Baxter taking pictures through the window of the widow and her son in their house? This is really a simple story with a simple message, barely sketched out characters, I got bored by the end. I suspect so did the director who quickly tagged on a hard to buy romantic ending.
