The Town Christmas Forgot

Synopsis: On his way to a luxury resort for the Christmas holiday, banker Charles Benson's car breaks down, so his family gets stuck in Nowhere, Colorado, a sleepy town which seems to be dying since its mine closed. Son Nolan befriends the grumpy old former toy shopkeeper, and pushes the charmed grump to become the naturally perfect Santa in the Christmas pageant his mother helped organize despite the disheartened mayor. Charles gets stuck in the mine with the mechanic, whom he befriends, and ends up as the real Christmas benefactor.

Whatever it takes, Freddie.

This deal has to happen.

This account could turn

everything around for us.

We're talking major

sponsor events.

God knows what the media buys will be.


More than millions.

So we have to do what we have to do.


You can finish the proposal

before the holidays...

Just pull an all-nighter,

you're brilliant at that, okay?





Not now!

What do you mean

no service?

This is supposed to

be sattelite digital.

Charles, I need

a phone.

Hey, honey, there's no

cell phones around here.

Oh, and what do we

owe this casual mood to?

You know what?

Try five days away from work.

Come on.

They can't

reach you now,

but you'll get calls

at the resort.

Nope, I told the guys

upstairs that I am going

to Colorado, to Colorado!

Come on!

You really think

that's gonna happen?


what's this?

No, no this can't be

happening, come on.

There are satellites


Apparently not here.

Where are we?

Forty-eight miles from

highway eighty-three.

Okay my little map-maker.

When's the next town?

Seventy-three, four,

seventy-five miles.

What's going on? What are

you guys talking about?


dad's gross music?

How can she be plugged into her

own world and then suddenly

know that it's quiet in the car?

I don't get it.

Teenage telepathy.

We're lost and we're never

gonna find our way.

Oh my god,

where are we?

What's up with

all this snow?

Where are all

the outlet malls?


I'm on vacation.


I'm on vacation.

Dad, Nolan's

making fun of me!


Didn't mom ever tell you

they adopted you?

Okay, both of you. Okay that's enough.

All right?

We are the Benson family. We

can brave these hardships.

I mean, who needs satellite radio?

Who needs cell phones?

Or CD players or DVD's or ABC's or XYZ's.

So sit back.

Enjoy the luxury of a well made

automobile as we drive... Whoa!


Whoa! All right. Okay, that's fine.

All right. Okay.

I told you,

we should have flown.

Is everybody okay?

You're okay.

I don't like this. Not at all.

Can we go now?

I don't think we're gonna go anywhere.

We're stuck.

Do not tell me this.


Okay, everybody, we're fine.

It's okay.

Someone will...

will come along.

Oh, someone will

come along?

It's a paved highway, there's

bound to be some traffic.

When was the last car

you saw?


Where are you going?

I'm going outside. I'm gonna

check out the damage.

Dad, there's

wild animals out there.

It's nothing. Okay,

everybody, just relax.

It's fine.

It's good.

I read that the bears that can't sleep

all winter, they hunt for food.


What? I did.

Mountain lions, too.

Well, Charlie boy. What

are we gonna do now?

Now, about that someone will come along...

the line you said a while ago.

Okay, I cannot miss

this party tomorrow night.

Dad, do something!



What is it?

Please be a car

with boys!

What if it's

a serial killer?



It's gonna be

perfectly fine.

Hey you okay?

Are you all right?


You folks okay?

Yeah, uh, do you know

a mechanic?

You're lookin'

at one.


We need help.

Tell ya what,

I can drive it back to town,

and we'll fix up that

later on.

Town's still pretty

far away?

About eight miles,

and uh, no use lookin'

at your map there, sonny, they

stopped puttin it on five years ago.

Um, sir, how much do you

think it would cost?

Cost? Nothin',

I'm goin' that way.

Oh, what about

our luggage?

I got lots of room

in the back of the truck.


Let's go. Thank you. Thank you.
