Not heartwarming....Disturbing
13 November 2008 | by mmka1See all my reviews

I did attempt to like this film. At first I did not recall ever seeing it but by the end I remembered it and why I had banned it from memory. No, I do not have a heart of coal but lying to children is despicable.

The world would be a much better place with tooth-fairies and toy building elves but misleading children with these stories, however "well meaning", is disgraceful. Honesty and compassion is always best - as demonstrated by the grocery store owner; who by the way was the only believable character in the film.

This story is highly contrived and has a tragic end. I do not find this movie inspiring or wonderful.
