Simon, Elodie, Santa Claus, Mary Ellen and Gramma = PARTAY!
10 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is beyond the slightest shadow of a doubt, the most ridiculous movie ever made. HOWEVER, it is entirely impossible to watch this movie and NOT be entertained. My brother and I have watched this movie every Christmas since we were 3 and 4. We laugh, we cry, we sing along... Not really. Actually, we DO laugh.. a lot. When the fairy takes the children to the "workshop" and the elves sing a little song, listen to the words... you'll understand why. Also, classic scenes like Santa arguing with a monkey.. and Santa swimming with a crocodile are spellbinding. Watch for the scene where Santa literally throws the dog across the room in order to wake the children... When the maintenance man throws putty at Simon's face, the look in the child's eyes is priceless! When you watch this movie, make sure you "Stop All Your Crying Business", what for, you say? You'll find out!! ;)
