Er, It's a KIDS film?
5 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

So for all you miserable adults out there going "uh, I've wasted my money on this" well, perhaps you did, seeing as though you're 30 years old. This film is for children. For anyone aged between 4 and 12 really, though others will enjoy it too, unless your surname is Scrooge.

Good music in it, great acting from Tennant, some funny moments.

Yes, some of it was unrealistic and very silly, but most films are unrealistic. If you didn't enjoy this film in the SLIGHTEST, you obviously don't like Christmas much!

Well worth a watch.
