Well, I loved it!
I personally found the film, despite certain flaws inherent to TV budget-level productions, to be completely delightful. I especially enjoyed Beau Bridges as St. Nick. I found the script to be well-written, and the story at least attempted to be somewhat plausible. The character interactions were excellent, and I feel that those who hated this film are also the same types who gripe about the problems of the Holidays in general.
Sure the movie is a bit trite in spots, but HEY! It's a movie about SANTA CLAUS! Suspension of disbelief or cynicism is mandatory before viewing such a movie.
This movie really does have something for both kids and adults, and I'm proud to have a copy of it on my shelf. If you love Christmas, you'll probably love this movie. I do, and I did!
