Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 10/28/1996
"...A fanciful comedy with an arresting premise....[Kinnear's] natural poise and charm make him a highly likable and effective leading man..."

Product Description:

In lieu of prison, fast-talking con artist Tom Turner (Greg Kinnear) is sentenced to employment in the dead letter department of the post office. Turner thinks he has found a perfect solution for all the undeliverable mail--and his own gambling debts--when he begins to plunder valuables found in the discarded letters. But when he mistakenly sends money meant for his bookie to the address of one of the "Dear God" letters, Turner finds himself the unexpected leader of a crusade of good will--and an accidental hero to the entire city.

Plot Synopsis:

During the holiday season, affable con man Tom Turner is busted after pulling one scam too many, and the judge orders him to get a "real" job. Tom gets a gig at the post office's "dead letter" office, where mail addressed to such figures as Santa, Elvis and God end up.
Soon Tom, and later his eccentric co-workers, selflessly help those who have requested The Lord's aid. The crew makes it a very Merry Christmas for lots of needy people -- and helps reform Tom into a law-abiding citizen.
