Ever since she was a little girl, Sparky Elf always wanted to work for Santa Claus. But when her dream finally comes true, she discovers that Santa's Workshop is in fact a sweatshop, and that her fellow workers are overworked and underpaid. Soon she becomes caught in an ugly labor strike that goes terribly wrong, putting the elves in the crossfire of a maniacal Santa, toy machines gone berserk, and a workshop doomed for nuclear meltdown. Can Sparky and the elves survive the holiday? Written by Alex George

Hilarious send-up.
29 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Saw the film at the 2005 Mill Valley Film Festival. The group I was with all loved it.

The film is a clever mix of a Rankin & Bass holiday special a Thunderbirds TV show and Adult Swim humor. The story is a very funny take on today's corporate culture of greed and corruption. The characters range from the twisted greedy Santa Claus, the corrupt union president Frosty Snowmen, the innocent hero Sparky Elf and the insanely obsessive hench-elf Mr. Fritz. The look of the film combines string puppets, detailed cardboard sets and computer effects. There are many film homages and an ending that would make any James Bond fan happy.

Unless they're fans of the Simpsons, I would not recommend this movie for young children as it portrays Santa and the elves in a negative light.
