Saturday, November 29, 9PM ET/PT

Because she never gets chosen by customers, she develops a sour outlook on life... until one day during the holidays, a very special 12-year-old girl named Chyrstal enters the pet store and falls in love with her after realizing she is the only person who can hear this unique cat talk. As the two develop a close friendship during the holiday rush, Grumpy reluctantly thwarts the kidnapping of an exotic dog she dislikes, and on Christmas Eve rescues Chyrstal after the mall closes.

His father (Danny Nucci, The Fosters) runs the local diner, and their family's claim to fame is their cousin, Annette Funicello (Krysta Rodriguez, Smash), the famous teen star and Mouseketeer.

Small-time con man Nick DeMarco (Barry Watson, Hart of Dixie) is ordered by his parole officer to take a minimum-wage job as a department store Santa during the holidays... and he hates it. Near the end of his first shift, he hastily promises a young boy, Billy (Tucker Meeks), that Santa will bring his estranged parents back together by Christmas. When his sister Rosemary (Melissa Joan Hart, Melissa and Joey) hears this, she is livid and can't believe he would break a little boy's heart with an empty promise. After a long night of soul searching - and with the help of an insightful female pastor (Wendy Williams) - Nick decides to make good on his promise to the child, somehow. But after meeting the boy's mother Carol (Melissa Sagemiller, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), will Nick ultimately choose to put the happiness of others ahead of his own? Jaleel White (Family Matters), Scott Grimes (Party of Five) and John Ratzenberger (Cheers) also star. Hart also directs this film.
