This is awful
30 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Oh Dear.

I've watched loads of films with my daughter (who is now 10), I am a bit of a film buff, so hope I can give a bit of guidance on this to other parents.

This film is xmassy, but only because it is crucifying in the biblical sense.

If you have kids under 6, i'm sure they will enjoy it, only because they will enjoy seeing wootton providing some kids entertainer type laughs, other kids dancing and singing and some xmas backgrounds, but whereas kids films normally have an adult undercurrent to keep the parents happy, this is a film for kids apparently written by kids.

There really is a sense of everything being made up on the spot, with no logic or reason to the film.

As parents you know how painful it can be watching your kids Christmas shows at schools only for the sheer joy of 5 minutes to see your child doing something, well imagine watching the last hour of this film seeing just that without having your kid in it.

I saw the first one, which wasn't too bad, but you have to give this a wide berth, to tell directors they have to do better than this mediocrity.

(never given a film a 1 before - although the happening came pretty close)
