Simply The Best
10 April 2018 | by wendelsitka-1See all my reviews

The most charming and engaging Saint Nicholas movie ever made. For all ages- children will be fully engaged, while the adults- will evolve into children. Briefly. A bounty of color, confection, and good cheer. Excellent movie.

Note: A reviewer comments the lackluster IMDb rating may be attributable to American influences. IMDb demographics (as of April, 2018): There are 14 US ratings, weighted average = 6.1. A total of 165 non-US ratings = weighted average = 6.0.
