Storyline

Exasperated from bratty, ungrateful and self-centered kids, Santa's elves decide to go on strike, and the elves' demands on Santa become rather unreasonable. In desperation, Santa brings six mischievous teens from the mall to help. After several unsuccessful attempts to escape, including stealing Santa's sleigh, Santa sends the teens to watch "naughty/nice" videos where they have to vote on kids' behavior. All seems fun to the teens until they see videos of their own behavior and have to vote themselves naughty. One teen, upset and thinking his behavior as nice, kidnaps a sleeping elf as a last chance effort to force Santa into sending him home.

A valuable lesson for any time of year
14 December 2016 | by djsmockSee all my reviews

I was very pleasantly surprised with this movie. I knew that it would be a great film for little kids, but I found myself cheering on the cast of young actors as their characters learned a valuable lesson as they looked at their own actions and their own lives. I would recommend this for children of all ages. The lessons to be learned are valuable no matter what your age may be or what time of year it may be. It is not easy working with a cast of almost all children, but Ken Feinberg has done a wonderful job of getting the cast to step up and give a very convincing performance. Kudos to the whole cast and crew for a fun, family oriented film that we can all learn from.
