"Miracle on 34th Street" is one of my favorite Christmas movies, right up there with "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Scrooge." It is funny, touching, and fun for the whole family, being one of the few Christmas movies to be like that.
Beginning with the scene with Kris telling a store manager that he mixed up the reindeer in a model of Santa and his reindeer, it shows that this movie is telling you to sit back and relax, because you're in for a real treat.
"Miracle on 34th Street" is one of the best Christmas movies I've seen, and only a few Christmas movies are as good as it.

Ever since 1947, "Miracle on 34th Street" has been known as a lovable piece of holiday schmaltz.
Sufficiently intimate to involve youngsters, yet full of little weird satirical digressions designed to charm the most hostile viewer, "Miracle," which runs through Dec. 29 2002, is among the very best of the holiday theatrical bets this year.
More so on stage than on the screen, "Miracle on 34th Street" comes across as a restless blend of light airy, comedy and serious dissertation on the true meaning of Christmas.

 Review: Miracle on 34th Street (1994)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The message of Miracle on 34th Street is one of hope for a society which has become increasingly jaded and cynical: that, even in the '90s, men and women can still look beyond their selfish interests to see - and react to - the needs of others.
Miracle on 34th Street remains a solid family feature (for those who don't mind its seasonal - albeit essentially non-religious - theme), with no vulgarity, nudity, or violence.
Miracle on 34th Street is unrepentantly nostalgic, sentimental, and manipulative, yet for those very reasons (which typically sink any "serious" production), it's difficult to dislike.

Miracle on 34th Street has been a favorite holiday movie since its release in 1947, and sharp-eyed observers may or may not have noticed that the film essentially retells the New Testament's story of the life of Jesus Christ.

 Miracle on 34th Street DVD Review
Anyone skeptical of updated retreads of Christmas movie classics may be genuinely surprised by this 1994 version of Miracle on 34th Street.
Based on the 1947 holiday classic, this new Miracle sticks close to the original's story, though it offers more contemporary, crisper pacing and a tone curiously more reflective--even sorrowful--than before.
"Miracle on 34th" has been remade before this one, as a TV version with David Hartman as the lawyer in 1973 - many normally discerning viewers liked that one too.

 Miracle On 34th Street - Music from the Movies
Les Mayfield’s 1994 remake of Miracle On 34th Street brought with it heart-warming comedy, a dash of romance and a sleigh-load of festive cheer — helped along greatly by Bruce Broughton’s music.
Clocking in at less than thirty minutes Miracle On 34th Street is hardly value for money, however it is a classy selection of tracks but one that is all too brief.
Bruce Broughton’s music is far too sparse and the short running time of the release makes me wonder why more score selections weren’t included (the ‘love theme’ for example, or the finaleĀ…) Thank goodness for Intrada’s 2002 score album.

THE MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET opens during Manhattan's Christmas Parade as Macy's executive Doris Walker (Maureen O'Hara) finds the Santa Claus for the store float so drunk he can't stand up.
Chiding Doris for employing such a derelict is a kindly, white-bearded man who, when she asks his name, tells her it's "Kris Kringle." Ignoring this, she pleads with him to replace the drunk, and he proves such a crowd-pleaser that she hires him as Macy's resident Santa for the holiday rush.

 CNN - arts & style - Macy's windows bring 'Miracle' to 34th Street - Nov. 23, 1999
NEW YORK (CNN) -- Taking advantage of its apt location in Manhattan at Broadway and West 34th Street, Macy's has interpreted six scenes from the film classic "Miracle on 34th Street" for holiday-season window displays.
That meant watching the 1947 original 20th Century Fox version of director George Seatons' "Miracle on 34th Street" repeatedly.
Macy's says the windows are a gift to the public as well as, of course, a commercial lure to the estimated 15,000 potential shoppers who move through the intersection of Broadway and West 34th every hour.

The 1947 holiday classic Miracle on 34th Street is transplanted to the 1990s with few changes in this family-oriented remake.
The screenplay by the prolific John Hughes sticks close to the original outline, centering on Macy's executive Dorey Walker (Elizabeth Perkins) and her young daughter Susan (Mara Wilson), neither of whom much believes in the spirit of Christmas.
Viewers familiar with the original may still prefer Edmund Gwenn's original Kris Kringle and consider the remake unnecessary, although the newer version reflects enough of the earlier film's spirit to prove entertaining to modern family audiences.
