Storyline

Lucky Christmas is the story of Holly Ceroni, a single mom trying to get back on her feet, but who is crushed to learn her winning lottery ticket is in the glove compartment of her recently stolen car. Mike Ronowski, the construction worker behind Holly's missing property, goes along with a master plan to befriend Holly and coerce her into giving him half of her winnings. Mike unexpectedly falls in love with Holly and learns there are more important things in life than quick money in time for the holidays. Written by Smash Media

Did You Know?

Goofs

When they are at the Pine Wood Derby all of the boys have exactly the same uniform and they are all bears. There should be tigers, wolves, and webelos present. A Pine Wood Derby is a pack event, not a den event. There would be boys from different ranks and dens therefore they would have different color hats, neckerchiefs, and different den numbers on uniform. See more »

Stocking stuffer or holiday junk mail? Maybe a bit of both...
13 November 2011 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Elizabeth Berkley is once again the freshest thing in an otherwise stale movie, this one made-for-TV. Sorry yuletide concoction attempts to equate car theft, a lottery win, ice hockey and last-chance boy-girl romance with the holiday spirit. Financially-strapped single mom (whose husband disappeared somewhat mysteriously before the story begins) has her car stolen with a special "Christmas lottery ticket" in the glove compartment. Of course the ticket is a winner--worth an underachieving one million dollars--and of course the guy involved in the car-nabbing is a handsome bachelor with a soft spot for struggling moms and their offspring. Berkley actually manages to make her scenes tender and believable, however the rest of this Hallmark Channel presentation is rather bedraggled.
