Gotta Catch Santa Claus (2008)
14 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Cheaply animated and obnoxious Christmas special. It's painful watching it trying to be so hip and cool, as it's already dated. Hardly going to become a classic. I really feel as those some of these sequences could have been created by youngsters just getting started in animation. The songs aren't memorable and also use bizarre genres to make it feel fresh, when it just ends up awkward. Nobody wants to see Santa dancing to funk. Shatner is underused, and any good vocal work is betrayed by the lifeless faces of the characters. Some big icy monster on a comet with 3 snowmen henchmen makes it interesting for a while, but it gets old fast. The highlight is Santa's ridiculously hot wife, and when talking about a shoddy animated film, that's quite depressing.
