CHRISTMAS BREAK – IN

(Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Director Michael Kampa

Music by J Bateman

Label Plaza Mayor Company Ltd

Izzy is an energetic 9-year-old. Overscheduled and running late, her parents can’t pick her up on time on the last day of school before Christmas break. A blizzard complicates the matter, but not as much so as a pair of bad guys who are freezing in an ice cream truck. The school janitor is kidnapped by them, and it’s up to Izzy to save the day.

It’s close to Christmas and nine-year-old Izzy (Cameron Seely) is desperate to get a new guitar. Her parents have promised to take her after school if they can be bothered. You see, Izzy’s parents are ridiculously consumed with their very busy jobs, to the extent that they borderline neglect their two children. So off Izzy goes to school where she spends quite a lot of time with Ray the Janitor who teaches her the guitar. Then a blizzard hits, the school closes early and all parents must come and get their kids. All except Izzy’s. We’ve already established that they are not the most reliable people.

By now, Ray has realised that Izzy is on her own in the school and goes back to get her. He then gets kidnapped by the thieves who don’t know Izzy is still there. All the while the idiot parents have crashed their car, and are attempting to get to the school by other means. That includes trying to rob a snow ski, which they also crash. I told you they’re idiots.

Of course, this is primarily a kid’s Christmas movie so everything works out in the end. Christmas Break-In is basically Home Alone with a girl in a school. Sadly, it doesn’t have any of the same comic genius, decent script or plot as it’s predecessor. To the woman on IMDB who gave it two reviews, both with 10 stars – what were you thinking????
