Lame and sad.
3 June 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Good actors tied to a bad product. In 2009--when this was made--digital animation was hardly in its infancy, but you would never know it from this movie. The animation is just bad all the way around; badly designed, badly drawn, badly rendered, herky-jerky, and downright painful to watch. Even more strange, when the Christmas tree is flown to Macy's by helicopter, the helicopter is a U.S. Navy SH-2F Seasprite. This is an aircraft not operated by civilians at all, and the tactical mission equipment such as the radar dome is clearly visible under the fuselage. I figure that for some reason, it was the only helicopter they had an existing 3-D model for, so they just used it. (BTW, I have 2000 hours flying H- 2s, so it was fun for me to see it in the movie, but in no way makes the movie worth watching...)
