Storyline

When Santa sets off on his Christmas duties a day early, crashes into the Fox family's house, ends up with amnesia and loses his magic sack of presents, he needs help! But the Fox family are a modern and broken family. Can they help him? The parents are preoccupied with work and the kids aren't very festive. But it's up to them to help Santa find his magical bag of toys and the clock is ticking or Christmas will be ruined. Forced to set their own problems aside and work together the Fox family rediscover how much they enjoy being together and realise that maybe they need to reprioritise their lives. The Night Before The Night Before Christmas is a crazy Christmas fantasy for all the family, brimming with festive spirit. Written by Anonymous

An old soft comfortable shoe
16 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now that I have said how I feel about it I must warn that most people will not like this movie. It is too cliché, too predictable, and maybe too slow. But it is unique in the fact that this is the only Santa show I know that Santa doesn't know he is Santa.

So why do I like it? I don't really know but Christmas before last was when I first saw it and it seems to have just the right homey touches and surprises. It won't win academy awards but it will be suitable for small children or children at heart. I especially liked the bag and its travels. I don't know why but I missed this movie last year. I am getting it several times this year and it is like an old soft shoe. I like it just as much as Kelsey Grammar's A Christmas Carol (The Musical) and Tom Hanks The Polar Express. Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without these movies and the wonderful music the school choirs sing.
