This family movie was fast-paced and loads of fun. Entertaining for children of all ages and adults alike.
You will fall in love with the Santa family, Arthur, Bryony, and especially Grandsanta. As a parent you can appreciate the morals of the story; that everyone matters, never give up, and sometimes the old-ways of doing things are better.
Our whole family loved the film, including our children, nieces and nephews. Protective parents need not worry about the little ones, there is no bad words or sexual innuendos.
Though this film is offered in 3D, I think the 2D version is better. Things didn’t pop out as much, but maybe it was suppose to be subtle. For small children, the 2D is better, no parent wants to fuse with a 2 year old trying to wear those oversize awkward glasses.
Bottom line: very enjoyable, good messages, lots of twists and fun humor … Definitely worth downloading and owning!
