The Christmas List (1997)

Movie Summary

Perfume saleslady Melody Parris feels like her life is in neutral. Her stick-in-the mud boyfriend won’t commit, and she gets passed over for a promotion at the store where she works. She decides to make a Christmas list. After it’s deposited in Santa’s mailbox at the store, she starts getting everything she wanted, but it doesn’t always turn out as she expected.

Is it available to purchase or rent?

No.

The Christmas List is one of the most requested movies each season, however it has not aired on TV since 2012. As far as we know, Disney/Buena Vista owns the rights to this movie. We encourage everyone to contact them directly. Perhaps if enough of us do, they will consider releasing it on DVD or at least airing it on one of their many networks.

    since Disney now owns the rights to this movie, it is time or them to make money off the dvd, by selling them. everyone is asking for this movie to made into a dvd. the dvd needs to have closed caption on it.

      I literally love this movie! My favorite part is the creme brulee scene! I look for it every year but to no avail and miss it terribly. I was also tricked by Hallmark when they used the movie title for one of their new movies. Please bring this movie back to TV or put it out on DVD! I will purchase!

    Everyone who wants to see Mimi Rogers “The Christmas List”, go to Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas webpage and scroll down to “contact” and send them a comment saying YOU WANT TO SEE IT! It’s too late for this year, but if we ALL tell them to bring it back, maybe they will air it next year.

    What would it take to convince the company that owns The Christmas List to air it. This is a wonderful movie and I looked forward to it each year.

        The Ebay DVD is a bootleg pirated copy of a recording off Family channel. It doesn’t have the deleted scenes, the quality is poor.

      Hi Pat, so many others agree with you! As far as we know, ABC/Disney (the movie originally aired on The Family Channel – later ABC Family, now known as Freeform) still owns exclusive rights to air it. They simply choose not to. We updated the YouTube link above to show the full movie.

        This link is not the full uncut movie. The original was so much better without all of the cuts taking it down to 1 hour and 26 minutes. I would pay anything to have that version myself!

        The youtube video was removed by youtube due to it being a pirated copy off the air.

    It would seem that whomever owns the rites to this movie would see the many replies to the fact that we want to see this movie again. It is one of the nicest Christmas movies that was made for TV and I urge the powers that be to show this movie again this season, 2017. I am 75 yrs. old and I just yearn for the Xmas movies to come on at this time of year. I am in a wheelchair and have many abnormalities and would hope and pray that these comments fall on the ears that matter in TV land. Please show this movie this year. Thank you.
