When Santa is first ready to take off, Nigel tells him to start his flight in New Zealand, in the easternmost time zones, and work his way west as the time zones progress. That notion is discarded for the rest of the movie as Santa spends Christmas Eve in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Nigel, Santa and the Foxes work on the premise that they have to get everything ready for Santa by midnight Central Standard Time (in Milwaukee), while Christmas Day is already almost over in places like New Zealand.

When Christmas is at stake, the Fox family steps in...
While "The Night Before the Night Before Christmas" is not a Christmas classic, it is definitely a movie that is well-worth watching for a Christmas movie marathon. And it is a movie that is quite suitable for the entire family to enjoy.
I watched "The Night Before the Night Before Christmas" around Christmas in 2016 along with a heap of other movies together with the family for a Christmas movie marathon. And it turned out that "The Night Before the Night Before Christmas" was actually one of the better movies to make it across the screen that year. This is the type of movie that appeals to an audience of all ages, because there is something for everyone to enjoy here.
The story told in "The Night Before the Night Before Christmas" is a fun, albeit somewhat off-beat, Christmas tale. It is about Santa Claws who accidentally crash into the Fox family's house, ends up with amnesia and loses his magical gift sack. With Christmas at stake, the family must assist the hapless elderly man to retrieve his sack and save Christmas.
It is a fun and wholesome story that is good paced, and there is a good amount of funny situations throughout the movie. Actually the movie combines the family element quite nicely with a pinch of drama and more comedy.
The acting in the movie was good, of course taking into consideration what kind of movie this is. But all in all, people did perform well up to what was expected. Personally, I wasn't familiar with the people on the cast list, so it was a refreshing change of pace with unfamiliar faces on the screen.
"The Night Before the Night Before Christmas" makes for a wholesome entertaining movie to sit down with the family to watch during the Christmas holidays.
