All I Want for Christmas is a 1991 American romantic comedy film directed by Robert Lieberman, and stars Harley Jane Kozak, Lauren Bacall, Thora Birch, Ethan Randall and Leslie Nielsen. The score was composed by Bruce Broughton, including a theme setting song by Stephen Bishop.[1]


In New York City, siblings Ethan (Ethan Randall) and Hallie O'Fallon (Thora Birch) launch a hilarious scheme to get what they most want for Christmas with their parents, Catherine (Harley Jane Kozak) and Michael (Jamey Sheridan), and grandmother, Lillian (Lauren Bacall). When Hallie meets Santa Claus (Leslie Nielsen), she asks for an unusual gift-her parents back together again.

As the children embark on their adventure and while planning ahead, Tony Boer takes interest with Catherine. Ethan gets pre-occupied with not only his parents' romantic dilemma, but also his own-one brought about by his new friendship with Stephanie. An elaborate scheme involves with mice, telephone calls and an ice-cream truck, as Ethan and Hallie try to achieve their goal for helping Stephanie, and sees Tony with the primary obstacle. They succeed with a little Christmas magic from Santa Claus. Catherine decides to reject Tony and remarry Michael, completing Hallie's wish, and Stephanie and Ethan talk one more time as she gives him a kiss and they began a relationship and everyone lived happily ever after.[2]
