When Raymond’s mom is done being naggy, she becomes Mrs. Miracle.
Mrs. Miracle is a conglomerate of Nanny McPhee, Mary Poppins, and Supernanny, who takes care of misbehaved children while pairing deficient parents with successful community leaders.
The craziest part, there is more than one of these.
1. Make the plot be about Christmas
2. Get former child star.
advice: avoid meth addicts. try former cast of Full House or Step by Step
3. Add quirky common characters.. example: the mother in law who just wont leave, the neighbor who keeps bringing cookies, the Santa who is stalking the main character.
4. Ask cast to share boring stories on set, so the viewer can feel like they really know the cast.
5. Put in large amounts of product placement for kitty litter or dog food (know your audience).

I am thankful that Hallmark starts their Christmas movie marathon November 12th.
I am a hundred percent sure that The Christmas Card will change my life.
