Inspired by Mariah Carey’s 2015 children’s book, which was in turn inspired by Carey’s 1994 hit song by the same name, All I Want for Christmas is You tells the holiday story of a young girl named Mariah (voiced by Breanna Yde, and by Carey in voiceover) who wants beyond anything else to get a dog for Christmas, much to the dismay of her allergic parents. But Mariah won’t settle for just any dog; she wants the most perfect dog in the pet store, a poochon named Princess, with whom Mariah can proudly walk in her local charity fashion show and earn the respect of the cool girls in school. Mariah’s dad relents, but on the condition that she first takes care of the rowdy, untrained mutt Jack. As Mariah struggles to clean up after Jack and to manage her own expectations of what makes a perfect dog, she discovers in the end what she truly wants for Christmas.
With a wonderful holiday soundtrack by Carey, featuring the titular showstopping hit song, the film is charming family offering with plenty of music and cute dogs for your children to enjoy! The film also features Henry Winkler as Mariah’s decoration-obsessed grandfather, and Mean Girls’ Lacey Chabert as Mariah’s mother.
