*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In Search Of Santa is a cute, short movie based for children around the ages of 6-10. It is a fun movie because of its adventure, music and comedy. Of course I am 13 and only got the movie because I am Hils Biggest Fan but I still found it funny. Hilary and Haytlie, plus other cast did great jobs as voicing this movie. **May Contain Spoilers** The animation in this film was OKAY. But it seemed like you were playing a video game! But that doesn't matter as the animation is still fun. So overall, it is based for younger children but if you are 13, like me, and watch the film you can watch out for the funny parts in the movie that children wouldn't point out. (Haylies Voice!!!) Overall, 7/10
