If you know the Clement Clark Moore poem, you'll know that Prancer is one of Santa Claus' "eight tiny reindeer." When 9-year-old Rebecca Harrell, who still believes in Santa despite the remonstrations of her parents and the taunts of her peers, stumbles across the selfsame Prancer in a remote part of the forest, no one will believe the girl. Later on, Harrell's no-nonsense father Sam Elliot comes across a wounded reindeer, he feels it his duty to put the suffering animal out of his misery. The deer, of course, is Prancer, and it magically vanishes before Elliot's startled eyes. Harrell nurses the deer back to health in secret, with the help of kindly doctor Abe Vigoda and her troublesome older brother John Joseph Duda. Harrell is determined to contact Santa and let him know where Prancer is, but her efforts only result in public humiliation for her father. But this is a Christmas film, and the spirit of goodwill is contagious by fadeout time, even transforming town-recluse Cloris Leachman into a warm-hearted social animal. Filmed in Indiana, Prancer isn't quite a classic, but it's perfect midwinter videocassette entertainment.

Prancer 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This movie is great for both children and adults. A nice little story about an eight year old girl who nurses an injured reindeer back to health and believing in the spirit of Christmas. A very touching film to be enjoyed by the entire family.

This movie had the intention of being a magical feel good Christmas story. It is instead the longest, slowest moving movie I have watched since Benji. A movie that will have your children squirming in their seats in the first 20 minutes. This movie is a yawner. Stay far away!

Here is a movie with heart and magic. A lonely little girl finds a wounded reindeer, which she believes is Prancer, and nurses it back to health, with many difficult obstacles for her to overcome. This warm well-told involving story is about love and human understanding with a wonderful (and surprising) happy ending. I've seen it bring tears to the eyes of viewers. Highly Recommended, and for me, it is a true Christmas Classic.

It all started when Jessica saw the street. Above it were the eight reindeer hanging from a wire...and then Prancer fell, and was run over. Then when Jessica walks home, she finds a wounded reindeer that looks just like Prancer...could this be the real thing?
