It’s time for the very first movie review of the Countdown to Christmas season! You asked, and we delivered with a review of “The Santa Stakeout” starring Tamera Mowry-Housley and Paul Campbell. Plus our thoughts on opening weekend as a whole and Megan’s plea for the Hallmark Movies Now app to make a comeback as an app actually worth using.

News and Notes on The Santa Stakeout
- Joe Pantoliano aka “Joey Pants” has 153 acting credits according to IMDB! He’s been busy, and we LOVED him as Francis Martin.
- Unfortunately 2020 wasn’t kind to Joe as he was hit by a car!
- Tamera Mowry Housley is married to Adam Housley and we’re grappling with our feelings about his former workplace.
- No shock here, The Santa Stakeout was filmed in Vancouver. Filming took place in August, which means we only get digital snow
Were we fair in our assessment of Paul Campbell’s Wowee Zowee status?
