Trivia

Slyly and Ridley were redesigned only months before the movies release. Ridley was going to have a striped blue and white Butler suit and Slyly was originally going to be red before (the latter was changed to white likely to reflect the movie's North Pole setting). See more »

Goofs

When Rudolph gets disqualified from the reindeer games, the referee clearly removes the winners' wreath from around Rudolph's neck to give to Arrow instead. However in the next scene, Rudolph is seen with the wreath still around his neck in the background and his rider is taking it off him. See more »

Rudolph finds himself in odds with others around him.
22 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I liked this movie and thought that it was great even for adults. I didn't find the music distracting from the overall message of the film. The wonderful fact that it teaches courage in the face of insecurity is one that is lost in a lot of movies that are made today. It also teaches that we do not have to be the same as everyone else around us. We can be different and even if we get teased about it we can find solace in ourselves in the fact that we are the way we are because that is the way that we were made and we are each special and unique. I found it a joy watching it by myself for the first time and again watching it with my 4-year-old nephew. It is one that I am glad that I bought and will watch many times over the holidays.
