New Hallmark movie
In Catch Me If You Claus, Italia Ricci plays aspiring news anchor Avery. When she finds a strange man in her living room one night, she is convinced she has caught a local burglar who keeps eluding the police.
When the man (played by Luke Macfarlane) tells her he is the son of Santa Claus, she doesn’t believe him. But before she can turn him over to the cops, he convinces her he is the real deal. The two then set their sights on catching the real burglar and along the way, sparks fly.
