An excellent Christmas movie, with clear understanding of the genre. More than just an obvious Christmas movie the film offers a unique contribution to the field with the true believers idea and an adorable collection of elves.
The Snow Report
A limited amount of snow such a minor short coming can be easily overlooked.
The big man features throughout the movie and is an enjoyable mix of crazy, friendly and mix. He has super powers and an incredible knowledge of Chicago but reindeer that disobey him.
Baubles, Lights and Tinsel
Festive throughout with great house, street and city wide decorations. The wide variety of Christmas Tress throughout is a particular highlight.
Will It Make Me Cry?
The moment of obvious sadness happens straight away and from there its family friendly throughout.
Great throughout with a really well crafted orchestral score. And then we get to the jail sing along.
Kurt Russell is fantastic as Santa. A Oliver Hudson of Capeside fame makes a brief appearance.
Reindeer apperently really enjoy Candy canes and Santa enjoys speeding through the city in a car as long as it is red.
