Storyline

Teddy Duncan's middle-class family embarks on a plane flight from their Denver home to visit Mrs. Duncan's parents, the Blankenhoopers, in Palm Springs - all except daughter Teddy and mother Amy, for whom a cross country odyssey begins when a chance at free plane fare leads to a curtailed bus ride, a nightmarish experience in a Yugo, hitchhiking with a pair of alien abductees, and peddling through the desert on a tandem bike. All the while, the male Duncans survive a zany Christmas with Grandpa and Grandma Blankenhooper. Written by Disney / revised by statmanjeff

Trivia

During the airport scene the song 'Run Rudolph Run' is playing while the Duncan family runs to their gate. This could be hinting at the 1990 Christmas classic 'Home Alone' where a similar scene with the same song is shown. See more »

Goofs

After the Yugo parts are carted away, Amy and Teddy are left moping in the diner parking lot. Far away in the background is a black vehicle parked next to the nearby motel. When Teddy is filming her video diary seconds later, the vehicle is missing. See more »

Amy Duncan: [nearby on the phone] No, no, no, Mom, you have to toddler-proof the place.
Teddy Duncan: [continuing her video] Just so long as you don't touch anything.

Warm, funny movie!
2 December 2018 | by jboyce-87321See all my reviews

I thought this was a great movie to view with the family around the Christmas tree. I laughed several times. The only thing holding this back from 10 stars, is simply the fact of the acting. I think the series actors were better than this. Although the actors are the same, they performed differently. 8/10
