While far from a classic this is a competent Christmas movie, entertaining to watch and with a positive message. Good old fashioned, family fun.
The Snow Report
There is a lack of snow at the start of the film as it is based within Florida. Santa does however makes it snow when he wants it to.
Santa appears throughout the credits and is significant throughout the entire movie. He is also referred to as big red.
Baubles, Lights and Tinsel
Ernest house has awesome decor which carries the whole movie in this regard.
Will It Make Me Cry?
This movie will not make you cry.
Some lesser know carols at the very start and lots of traditional Christmas music including a jail singalong.
Jim Varney and Douglas Seale are both brilliant throughout.
Flying reindeer, a magic sack it is all great.
