This movie reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child's question: "So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?" The answer: Santa's (Jim Broadbent's) exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the center of this movie is a story about a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur (James McAvoy), with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.Written by

After Arthur re-summons the sleigh with the help of Grandsanta, Grandsanta takes his sleigh, Evie with Arthur & Bryony, up into space to get a clear map of the world in order to find Trelew, they are only wearing breathing masks. If Arthur, Grandsanta & Bryony were beyond Earth's atmosphere without any protective astronaut clothing they would be completely exposed to lethal doses of radiation from the sun and their body fluids would fizz and bubble if they was wearing Santa & Winter Jacket clothes, even if they were just up there for a few minutes.

After the end of the credits, there is a seven second scene, all in black silhouette on a blue background. One of the elf-lowering-cables descends, pauses, then lifts up an elf, who proceeds to throw snowballs at the screen until it's all black. See more »
It's funny that some of the Oscar nominated movies were not as good as this. The animated movie section could have done with a movie like this. It has more than a little heart and it is a really good movie. I liked the 3-D too, but it's not really important. Because the movie works with it and without it.
When the movie started (I knew the general idea through the trailer), I did wonder how'd they make a feature length movie out of it. I wouldn't say I was afraid, they'd just fill the running time with smaller benign things, but I didn't really believe in it. I was so wrong. The movie always has something up its sleeve and it works perfectly. Great characters, great comedy and a heart that is so sweet it might be made out of sugar!
