Under the Mistletoe

Devoted father and husband Tom Chandler dies in a car accident, but appears as a ghost to his teenage son Jonathan. Now single mother, Susan Chandler tries to concentrate on her reporter job and dismisses the idea of a ghost, but allows the school counselor, Kevin Harrison, to work with Jonathan. Tom and Jonathan arrange for Susan to enter a radio show's dating game, and conclude that only Kevin, a widower and coach in Jonathan's former favorite sport, ice-hockey, will do as his stepdad, while she leans towards lawyer Greg Roberts. 

Our Two Cents:
This one is kind of The Christmas Ornament meets Mighty Ducks. The idea that Jonathan is getting help from his dad's ghost to find a boyfriend for his widowed mom might be a little odd, but it somehow works. Very cute, and sweet, and just a tiny bit of a tear jerker.
