Great
25 December 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wonderful movie. The kind you what to watch more than once. There are a lot of Christmas movies this time of year and I beginning to think that they were all shot out of the back of a moving van for $2.50, it is nice to see one that looks like some time and effort was put into it. With so many families stretched and stressed the message that this movie sends is a nice one making it well suited for all members of the family. I had never thought of Judd Nelson as "Santa" but he did a good job, it works and I love the elf - which proves that elfs come in all sizes because this one isn't typical but is fun. Anyone wanting to see a light fun heart warming holiday movie should definitely take at look at this one. Well done.
