I’ll Be Home For Christmas (1998)

Starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas as Jake, this movie is everything you loved about the late 90’s Disney Channel Originals. Jake is basically a hip, young Scrooge. Dad bribes him to get home by 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve. The rest of the film follows Jake as he tries desperately to get home despite a big setback that lands him in the desert. He takes a warm-hearted romp across the country, through various pitfalls and happy accidents. Will Jake make it home to claim his prize? 5 out of 5.
