Caillou's Holiday Movie (2003)

** (out of 4)

Disappointing feature-length version of the Canadian show about the 4-year-old Caillou who learns about the true meaning of Christmas. I'm not going to sit here and play some sort of moral police, which seems to happen whenever Caillou is brought up. Some parents hate the television show yet they still sat and watched this movie. Either way, my son really loved Caillou so I'm pretty sure I've seen all of the television episodes. For the most part they were cute for what they were but all of that is missing from this film. There are many problems here but one is that it just wasn't a good idea trying to take a 10-minute TV show and expand it to 70-minutes. The film seems extremely long and there are just so many scenes that seem to be here for no other reason than the producers needed a longer movie. Most of the charm is gone and even the lessons learned aren't all that special. There are some interesting things here including Caillou learning how Christmas is celebrated in other places but this here takes up a very small portion of the running time. It also didn't help that the musical numbers are incredibly forgetful.
