PRANCER (Theatrical Release USA 1989)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Prancer is sweet, but weak without much thought put into its storyline. While Sam Elliott superbly casts as the western hero, he is a little too rough as supporting character for Rebecca Harrell Tickell  in this movie. There is one scene in the film where Sam Elliott, while reading a newspaper, becomes distracted by outdoor sounds that works well; but he does not convey enough emotion to carry the majority of the scenes for this particular story well.

Storyline

Young Jessica Riggs (Rebecca Harrell Tickell) nurses a reindeer back to health. She believes she is caring for Prancer, a Santa Claus sleigh reindeer.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Better Christmas watches are: A Christmas Story, Polar Express, or How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
