This was aired on CBS for no reason.

From what I've heard, this looks even WORSE than the Emoji Movie. That may not be saying much, but it still feels like something Sony Pictures made that's WORSE than the Emoji Movie. WHY WERE JIM CUMMINGS AND JEFF BENNETT IN THIS MOVIE??!!

The animation is HORRIBLE!!! It makes the Emoji Movie look like a Universal-DreamWorks Movie!!! It's the 1999 equivalent of Rapsittie Street Kids. Still doesn't change the fact that that movie is worse. Why tell the story of the Nutcracker through the perspective of the food?? THIS MAKES NO SENSE!!!! THIS FEELS LIKE SOMETHING THE NOSTALGIA CRITIC SHOULD DO!!!!!

It was a straight to video movie that was made by Sony Pictures. Yes, even before the days of Sony Pictures Animation. You though the Star was bad? You thought Eight Crazy Nights (a Hanukkah movie) was bad? The Nuttiest Nutcracker was even worse. I don't know if the Nuttiest Nutcracker is worse than the Emoji Movie or not, but it kind of looks worse. Jerry Smith doesn't know any better.

You wanna know what's worse? The Nuttiest Nutcracker even had a TV appearance on CBS!!! I'm not joking. This was aired on CBS of all channels!!!! CBS literally AIRED this Atrocity. Just like how the WB aired the Rapsittie Street Kids.
