Not a Classic But Worth Watching
23 November 2012 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

The Christmas Orange (2002)

*** (out of 4)

Spoiled Anton gives Santa a 600-toy list of wants for Christmas but when he gets up that morning he sees that the red man has just given him an orange. Anton decides to sue Santa for breach of contract and this sets off a strange set of events. This animated short isn't going to be considered a classic but I think it's cute enough and charming enough to make it worth viewing. I think what works best about the film is the animation. While it's not beautiful, I think all of the characters were extremely well drawn and I thought each of them was very memorable. This is especially true for the dark lawyer with the wart on his nose. Even the Santa here is quite memorable with his jolly old laugh. Needless to say, the story ends up with a big message that I'm sure kids will get but the film is also entertaining enough for their parents.
