Storyline

Poor Santa Claus. This live-action feature finds his sleigh stuck in the sand on a Florida beach only days before Christmas Eve. He psychically summons prepubescent aid from a nearby subdivision. In order to extricate Santa's sleigh, the local children bring many different animals (presumably the sheep was someone's housepet), but nothing works, and the kids are afraid they won't get any gifts this year. To boost their spirits, Santa tells them the story of Thumbellina, and the setting dissolves into a "fantasy within a fantasy". Thumbellina is a beautiful but very tiny girl, "not much larger than a clothes pin". She becomes lost in the forest during the winter and finds refuge in the underground home of Mrs. Mole. A neighbor mole, Mr. Digger, falls in love and wants to marry Thumbellina, but she's having none of it. When warm weather returns, she runs back into the forest and deserts the two kindly creatures who saved her life, crushing their spirits forever ... the end. As Santa is ...

Who is the Ice Cream Bunny???
21 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this awful movie with my house mates in 2001 or 2002. It was so horrible it was hysterical!!! We laughed for hours after seeing this film. It is incredibly disjointed and makes no sense. The movie is VERY cheaply made. In one scene you could tell how many times they had to shoot the scene because the firetruck left wet tracks every time they re-did it. Also, at one point the back of Santa's pants look like he had an accident in them! Who the heck is the Ice Cream Bunny anyway??? If you enjoy watching bad movies because they are so bad, this is one to see! I will always remember this movie and hope I can buy it to share it with my friends and family.
