At the very end of the movie, B.Z. is shown floating far away in outer space far from Earth's atmosphere. Since there's no oxygen in outer space, he should be dead and not screaming for help. See more »
[Dooley is reading Twas The Night Before Christmas]
What is it?
It's a poem. A poem about me. They say it's a big hit.
He had a broad face, and a little round belly that shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly.
What was that? That last part.

He had a broad face.
Yes. Go on.

Wonderful adaptation of the world's greatest legend.
I have seen this movie every Christmas since I was a child, and I believe it brings explanations of how the fable of Santa Claus, and all of the childhood beliefs came to be. It may be a watered down version of Willy Wonka, but it had great effects for the 1980's, and it brings out the child and Christmas spirit in everyone. It is a grade above Ernest Saves Christmas ( I love watching it as well on a comical basis) especially when it comes to the story line and characters. Dudley Moore was wonderful as Patch the elf, and delivered a great performance without being a drunk or married to two women. It's movie of morals, and the spirit of Christmas.
