Santa and his broken leg
4 January 2014 | by (Margate Florida) – See all my reviews

Patsy and Cynthia go to Switzerland so Benji can be Grand Marshall in a parade. When they arrive they find that Kris Kringle has a broken leg and will not be delivering gifts on Christmas. But, his leg may not be the problem. If it were not for Ron Moody (who played Fagin in the movie Oliver)the movie would be a total bust. He is quite the actor and showman. Other than the fact that they were in Switzerland for Benji to be in a parade, he was pretty much just carried around and had very little interaction in the movie. The dog had no personality and seemed disinterested during the whole movie. Did I mention it was VERY short. I know it was listed as a short and short it was..
