A Christmas cracker
25 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While not among my top 3 from Golden Films like Thumbelina, The Little Mermaid and Pinocchio, The Night Before Christmas is definitely in my top 5 along with Three Musketeers. The animation is mostly colourful and fluid with some of the better character designs of the Golden Film animation. The classical music choices are lovely as ever, the use of the Carmen En'Tracte and the Air on the G String were very touching in particular, while the song of the toys has be one of the catchiest songs of any of Golden Films' resume, every time I hear that song or watch this I hum that song all the time. The script is sweet and well-meaning while never resorting to preaching or cloying sentimentality, while the story is heart-warming and really puts you in the Christmas spirit. The characters are all engaging, Santa is suitably jovial and Jeffrey is a likable protagonist. The mouse I also find amusing. The voice acting is solid. All in all, a lovely Christmas cracker, not my favourite Christmas film/special of all time but one I have great fondness for. 9/10 Bethany Cox
