    An entertaining but far from perfect holiday family film. The story drags on an inexplicable extra ten minutes after the resolution of the main story seemingly to round out a 90 minute runtime. There are some big laughs, but this film leaves an aftertaste of being over-rated. That being said, it is one of the few films to truly capture the feeling of being a kid at Christmas. 11 years 11 months ago

    I loved the movie. Not for "grown ups" who aren't nostalgic about their childhood :) 11 years 9 months ago
