I have not actually watched the first one, and hearing the plot described in the beginning of this, I am quite thrilled about that. This is also the only of Takács' flicks that I've caught, and unless there's actually entertaining(in the "so bad it's kinda good") crap among them, I certainly don't intend to change that. The holiday being immensely popular with gentile children everywhere, it is sadly also something that a lot of movies get made about and for, and countless of them, plain and simple, suck. This is one of them. While I truly wish that I could bring attention to something in this that is good, well-done, or at least shows a hint of promise, in spite of an extensive search, I have not located anything. Production value is non-existent, with the elves and Santa(who, by the way, has got so much jolly flooding out of every freakin' pore that everyone over the age of five will grow nauseous from mere seconds of exposure) wearing Halloween costumes and walking around whatever sets real films rejected. The effects are wholly unimpressive. Editing and cinematography are below average. The humor is stupid, silly, childish and never funny. Every acting performance is poor, and the characters are bland, one-dimensional cardboard cut-outs. The plot? Christmas is being ruined, because the North Pole is being sold. That's right, it's all about stuff! Yes, materialism! The spirit of what now? Who is responsible for this atrocity, not to mention pointing out that the Helpers probably ought to form a union? One of Mr. Claus' supposed daughters, Rudolpha(no, I'm not buying that as her lineage; I personally believe her to be the bastard child of Cruella DeVil and The Grinch... hey, the green, furry skin could be recessive), of course. And she teaches us several new meanings to the word pain when she, without any provocation whatsoever from the audience, performs one of the most god-awful songs that you will ever hear. The moral is about what you'd expect; I just find it hilarious that it's so vague that it could be applied to any number of beliefs and/or faiths that the parents of the potential viewers hate. There is nothing offensive about this apart from how awful it is, and some will loathe the completely religion-free approach that it takes. I recommend this solely to people with low(or no) standards. 1/10
