Storyline

As if young Jake Spankenheimer doesn't have enough problems on Christmas Eve, he has to help his mom and dad prevent mean-spirited cousin Mel from taking ownership of the family store. When his grandmother gets lost in the cold in the midst of the confusion, Jake is sent out to find her, only to discover that she's become the victim of a rather unusual hit-and-run accident, and that Santa is real but not quite the sort of guy he was expecting.

Bad in almost every way possible
9 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas specials but I really disliked this one. This did have the ingredients for it to be at least charming, but so much let it down that my head was throbbing from hitting the wall countless times. The animation is very shoddy especially in the character designs, while the music is mostly awful. The incidental music is okay, but the songs were what irked me. Not only are the melodies forgettable and the lyrics trite, some of them don't fit with the story at all. The story is a great idea but badly told, and not helped by the poor pacing and terrible dialogue. Very few of the characters are likable either, and the voice acting ranges to decent to sub-par. So all in all, this was really quite bad, at least for me. 1/10 Bethany Cox
