    l Be Home for Christmas is a 1998 Christmas family comedy film directed by Arlene Sanford. It stars Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Jessica Biel, Adam LaVorgna and Gary Cole.

    Jake Wilkinson is an 18-year-old boy attending Palisades Academy in California. For the past few years, he has not been home to Larchmont, New York for Christmas since his mother died and his father remarried. A few days before Christmas Eve, his father offers to give him his vintage 1957 Porsche if he is home by 6:00 p.m. Christmas Eve for Christmas dinner. Initially, Jake had traded in his airline ticket to New York for two tickets to Cabo San Lucas to take his girlfriend Allie, who is also from New York. She considers the act selfish as Jake knows Allie always returns home for Christmas. Jake reconsiders and trades the tickets back in for New York, and she forgives him. Now it's just a matter of getting home, and maybe learning a thing or two about Christmas along the way.
