16 Sep


Christmas film starring Shelley Long
Year: 1996
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boy ~12 yo ?, girl, men
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium ?
Rating:  7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: At least one older thin dark haired boy (maybe younger than it seems, maybe 11 yo, is this Shane McLoughlin the son of the director??) in quite baggy stone washed blue bibs (bib at low position) and at least a teen girl in blue shortalls. Maybe more actors in bibs, maybe some supporting actresses as well? At least one older man in blue bibs and Santa in red bibs or similar.

Thanks very much for this suggestion!

Unfortunately I only had the time to check the first 20 minutes and confound it with the previous suggestion with first 15 minutes only. At the beginning the boy in bibs hockey skating (also shown from behind but briefly shown). First I thought that this was another boy and this were shortalls but he wears protection pads wich cuffs up the legs. Later the teen girl (briefly shown front and back). At about 16 minutes the car scene (one strap down) also very good, nearly perfect view from behind.

The movie itself looks also very interesting starring Nathan Lawrence (I think 1st pic in the middle), Barry Bostwick and Nancy McLoughlin.

Rating 7-8 for now. 7 means I would buy it. If someone knows this movie and can recommend it or knows some better scenes later in this movie, or the name of the actors in bibs please comment. One short clip on YouTube but without boys/bib scenes.

Reminds me somehow of  “Huck & the King of Hearts” (dark longer curly hair, baggy bibs (much baggier and cycling in there, rating 7+).
