Enchanting Christmas Movie
23 January 2000 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

This Christmas movie, is destined to be a wonderful Christmas classic. Olive the other Reindeer is a charming Christmas story with a bit of abstract modern animation that still manages to be very endearing and quite original compared to the very frequent re-hashings of Christmas type stories. I hope they release this movie on DVD or Video, I would certainly buy it. I hope this wonderful movie is aired again next year.
