Makes me love Christmas EVEN MORE..and that's hard to do
15 December 2009 | by vegeta3986See all my reviews

To start off with, i wasn't thinking too much about this movie going in. I had never heard of this film and the only reason i knew of its existence was because of my local Redbox. However, the Christmas season came upon me and i decided to give it a shot. and to be honest, i was completely shocked. not only did i like this movie, but i loved it so much i went out and bought it the next day. This movie is really adorable. Now normally i can find little girl characters in Christmas movies to be annoying brats. ( A good example of this is that irritating little girl from The Santa Clause 3) However, not only was i not repulsed by Sophianna in this film, i thought she was completely adorable and wanted to give her a big "it'll all be OK" hug. Pretty much to the point that, if she were real, "I" would have adopted her myself. haha. This movie's vocal cast was great as well. i loved Norm as the fox, it just fit perfectly. the lesson was cute and the story was very original. i actually thought the twist with Santa's magic sack was really cool and original. The only reason why this movie doesn't get higher than an 8 is for one simple reason. The songs....weren't that great to be honest. While the plot, characters, and voices were all great, a lot of the songs left much to be desired. Other than that though, this was a great Christmas movie which i have already added to my collection and i really wish it DID had a theatrical release. Oh well, i guess i'll have to be satisfied with it on DVD. However, Christmas is here again really brings out the joy of Christmas, with 8 magical bags, out of 10
