Terrible Movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
28 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was expecting a family movie. Instead, it was an unnecessarily evil and depressing disaster. Families beware... this movie is awful. The story line includes young orphans frequently referencing their dead parents ("they didn't make it"), a homeless man who robs Santa of the "magic crystal" that gives him his life and who at the end of the movie is never held to account, an evil, mean-spirited caretaker of an orphanage (who remains mean throughout the movie), scenes of dolls and stuffed animals incinerated at the hands of the evil headmistress, and last but not least, Santa clause on his death bed, being watched over by the "head elf" who at one point answers a young girl's question, "is he going to make it" with a grim shake of his head.
