Trivia

There are at least 4 homages to popular movies: The Godfather - When Steve offers to break Santa out of prison to the elves it closely mimics the scene when Michael offers to kill Sollozzo and McClusky. ET - the sleigh flying to the backdrop of a large full moon.Shawshank Redemption - there is a tunnel behind the poster of a woman in the gym like behind the poster of Raquel Welch in Andy's cell. And the Birdcage when they escape as a Dragqueen. See more »

Quotes

Great movie with a difference
17 November 2017 | by ari-86384See all my reviews

Nine year old Tom discovers Santa and persuades his sceptical dad to help him get back to Lapland. Jim Broabent is very entertaining as the naive and bewildered Father Christmas.

This is refreshingly British and a great addition to my annual must see festive films. One of the best Christmas movies ever made.

It is also way superior to over-rated schmaltz such as 'critics favourite' White Christmas (1954). Personally I had more fun watching paint dry.
