Teri (Kelly Stables) should have been the heroine. Mary Class (Jenny McCarthy) is just a headache.
She's back. Still a corporate suit; nothing in her demeanor has changed as a result from the previous episode. Still obnoxious to elves, her dad Santa, etc. Oh, she has some gratingly stereotyped people working for her in "The City," too. The City scenes are too over stated and over done to be cute. But now Santa's going through some mid-life crisis (a few centuries late), and wants Mary to take over again. Mary doesn't want to, again.
Enter Teri, a go-getter who does all the work. She's depicted as an evil interloper who wants to seize control, but if you see the movie, and actually want some toys under the tree Dec. 25th, you'd root for her instead of the other two. The actress playing the role is very likable, and plays the role expertly. The other elves are pretty funny, too. The Union trade negotiations were pretty funny, but Mary comes off as stone hearted; it's annoying after a while to listen to her belittle everyone constantly. And that guy playing Mary's boyfriend? He plays the role like Beavis.
OK in places, but could have been better, though.
