Stealing Christmas is a heartwarming holiday movie that captures the true spirit of Christmas. The movie revolves around a small town of Hamden, Vermont, which is known for its Christmas traditions and celebrations. However, things take a hilarious turn when a thief attempts to steal the town's Christmas decorations, including the iconic Christmas tree, just a few days before Christmas.

The thief in question is a professional criminal named Jack Clayton, played by Tony Danza. He thinks it's an easy heist, but his plan is thwarted when Emily Sutton, played by Angela Goethals, spots him and alerts the police. Emily is the daughter of the town's sheriff, Tom Sutton, played by Kevin Pollak. Emily is a rebellious teenager who is still grieving the loss of her mother, and her father is trying to cope with the challenges of parenting on his own.

Lea Thompson plays Sarah Gibson, a best-selling children's book author, who is in town to research her new book. Sarah is staying in the same inn as Jack, and after he gets caught stealing, she takes pity on him and agrees to help him with his heist. Sarah is drawn to Jack's vulnerability and sees him as a misunderstood character.

As Jack and Sarah work together to pull off the heist, they start to develop feelings for each other even though they have very different values and beliefs. Sarah wants to experience a real Vermont Christmas with all its traditions, while Jack doesn't see the point in celebrating a holiday that has lost its true meaning.

As the movie progresses, the characters come to their realizations about life and the real meaning behind Christmas. Emily reconnects with her father, and they work together to solve the mystery of stolen Christmas decorations.
