The one where Tatyana Ali teaches Jackée the true meaning of Christmas at the mall. With her grinch of a boss (Jackée Harry) looking over her shoulder, shopping center manager and Christmas-lover Heather (Ali) has no choice but to shut down a beloved but poorly performing toy store. Enter new love interest Ryan, who just happens to be the nephew of the woman who runs the toy store. The predecible story that follows is charming and silly in all the right ways, even if the store that everyone’s so desperate to save only stocks the kind of boring off-brand toys that literally zero kids will be asking for.
Part of the fun of these things is playing spot-the-celebrity—very often a TV or soap star having some fun during the off season. Here we’ve got a heap: there’s Ali (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Young and the Restless), Kim Fields (The Facts of Life, Living Single), Jasmine Guy (A Different World, Dead Like Me), Brenden Fehr (Roswell), Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers, The Goldbergs), and, of course, the legendary Jackée (227, Days of Our Lives), who spices up any holiday party.
