Quotes

Jake Spankenheimer: You saw it, didn't you, Grandpa?
Grandpa Spankenheimer: I'm sorry, did you say something? I was too busy watching Grandma get hit by Santa's sleigh. What a sight, sleigh comes out of nowhere, Grandma takes a header into the snowbank, sleigh vanishes, like the Ghost of Christmas Past.
Cousin Mel: And that's what's known as an advanced case of Santa-Claus-is-real syndrome.

Oh, the Pure Agony...X_X
8 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Never I have seen a movie so terrible that i've gone insane. It was a HUGE waste of time seeing this crappy film. There are a lot of things i hate about this movie: The songs is so terrible (yet a little bit catchy) i hit my head on the wall(especially from the song 'Grandpa is gonna sue the pants out of Santa' which i hit 10 Times *shrugs*), the character design, and that evil, greedy, and Bitchy cousin Mel.

I cannot stand her for one second, she has got to be one of the most bitchiest person i've seen. Even though i kinda like her southern voice.

The only bright-side is that Austin Bucks is played by the person who is the voice of Liquid Snake from Metal Gear Solid.

I would not recommended to people to watch for the holidays as it was a HUGE disgrace for x-mas.
