If you’re like me, you’re a sucker for Lifetime movies and Holiday films. I don’t care how cliche or predictable, I’m here for it. So I was really excited to learn that on Saturday, while we’re eating all of our Thanksgiving leftovers, we can do so while watching Tatyana Ali in a Lifetime Holiday movie called “Dear Secret Santa.”

Shadow and Act reports that the film follows a newly single Jennifer who moves back to her childhood home. While there she is flooded with memories of her friend Jack who recently passed away. One day Jennifer gets a Christmas card in the mail from a secret admirer. Who calls himself her secret santa. The admirer knows personal details about her life and so she decides to write him back. In fact, his letters remind her of her friend Jack. Throughout the movie she tries to determine who’s been writing her.

You can watch the trailer for the film which stars Della Reese, Bill Cobbs and Jordin Sparks.

The film premieres on Lifetime on Saturday, November 30 at 8/7c.

    I apparently missed something in this movie. Was jack really dead? If so how did they appear together at the end.

    The movie wasn’t that great and like someone else said Ms. Ali acting isn’t that great like some other child actors.

  • Just saying!!

    Hopefully it will be something good or at least okay because to be honest, as much as I love my “Ashley Banks”, her acting is………not the best. :) still love her though…

    This movie looks like it would make great background noise while one putters around the house doing small cleaning projects.

    Those LIfetime movies are always filmed in places with no snow. Despite that I grew up on the west coast and shouldn’t mind that, I still like to watch Christmas movies with snow. The storyline reminds me of ‘Sundays at Tiffany’s” for some reason, but I’ll probably end up watching it.
