Not normally one for writing film reviews but having just watched this with the kids felt compelled to defend it (to a certain extent).
The key word is KIDS film.Mine are 3 and 6 and they both sat laughing the whole way through and immediately wanted it on again when it finished.That,in my book,is a good enough measure of a children's film rather than expecting it to have lots of subtle gags that adults would appreciate.Having said that,being that I'm a bit silly natured myself,I found it amusing enough in places to keep me watching alongside them without wishing for the end too much.
The story line is beyond ridiculous but if you're after a good hearted film to get you in the Christmas mood with your kids you could do worse.
