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.

Simply, hilariously bad
25 November 2011 | by (US) – See all my reviews

This movie is really bad, but really funny because of it. Yes the plot is rather stupid but most Christmas films are not exactly plausible or in this case, "clausible". HA HA. The songs are also lame, but still funny. They also seem to have added extra ones that branch of ideas from the original. The jokes are not that hard to get, there isn't really any violence or foul language...just fine for the kids. The animations are fine, doesn't have to be CGI to be considered good. Don't know why this movie is being trashed so badly, it's not by far the worst holiday one out there. We look forward to seeing this every year and hope they keep airing it. If you haven't watched it out yet, definitely look for a copy on Amazon or YouTube.
