Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

In a season of THE SPECIALIST and PULP FICTION et al, maybe a remake of
MIRACLE ON 34th STREET *is* necessary.  John Hughes certainly believes
in Santa Claus and his Les Mayfield-directed production does nothing to
tarnish the memory of the 1947 original.  The romance between costars
Dylan McDermott and Elizabeth Perkins doesn't work too well, but the
film makes a strong case that Richard Attenborough is the definitive
Kris Kringle.  His chemistry with children can moisten any eye.

No Claus for alarm.

Grade: B+
