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.

Great Family Movie
19 December 2016 | by GigisiSee all my reviews

This is the perfect holiday movie for the whole entire family to enjoy. My little one has watched it several times and he says its his favorite Christmas movie yet. The story is fresh and warm with a good message! Eric Roberts never disappoints and the young talent is really good. We were delighted to see a younger Erica Bierman ,Twinkle best known for The Hunger Games. Also, cute little Storm Reid from Twelve Years of Slave! Diva was hilarious and got me cracking up! i give a 10/10 for this movie! it got me in the Christmas spirit. ( this movie is also a great gift just in case you forgot to go Christmas shopping.) Merry Christmas!
