Gotta Catch Santa Claus is a holiday animated movie that was actually released last year but has just been released on DVD and will air for the first time on ABC Family.

Gotta Catch Santa Claus is about a boy name Trevor and his best friend Veronica. During a Chess competition Trevor and Veronica got into a discussion as to whether or not Santa Claus was real. Trevor truly believed in Santa where as Veronica felt that it was impossible for Santa to exist. Veronica went so far as to scientifically disprove that Santa could exist.

To prove Veronica wrong Trevor and his nerdy friends (I don't remember their names, I just know them as "X" and "Y" who are twins) set out of devise a plan to capture Santa. Even though she was skeptical Veronica hung around the boys to see if they could pull it off.

Much to their surprise the kids were able to bring down Santa and capture him. This also made it easier for an evil ice monster from outer space name LeFreeze to find Santa. LeFreeze has been trying to capture Santa to take care of a 100 year old grudge he has against him. With the help of his evil snowman minions LeFreeze comes to town to capture Santa for himself.

I'm not going to tell you how the story pans out. You'll just have to purchase the DVD.

My whole family had the opportunity to view the movie. My husband liked it but said it was not as endearing as the true holiday classics like Rudolph and Frosty. My 12 year old daughter said it was cool and thought it was funny when Santa was hip hop dancing.

I think the one person in my family who was most taken with the movie was my 10 year old son. He loved it! I can see it's appeal with boys and 'tween boys.

OK so this movie is adorable! Its older kids maybe 9-10 questioning if Santa is real or make believe. Some say real some say fake. Anyway the ones who think hes real try to catch him and they do and yeah everyone is happy. Cute songs and not nearly as annoying for parents as some movies lol my 5 year old LOVES this movie as did the 3 year old who watched it with us!

Thought this would be cute for my 10 yr old. Didn't like the themes and wasn't impressed w/ the story line. I thought from the other reviews that it would be a good DVD but it's just not something we would bother watching again. Bla.

My 8 Year Old Daughter has always dearly loved this movie. It was available on Netflix, and she watched it alot, but then it got removed from their rouster. It didn't seem fair for her to not be able to watch a favorite again, so we got it as a gift!

No regrets with this purchase.

Surprisingly, several of her friends, were also familiar with this movie, and loved it too!

My 3 yr old son saw the preview to this movie on his Leapfrog DVD, and he practically memorized the preview, so I just had to find the movie for him. I've never heard of it before and was surprised to find it on Amazon, and even better it was a Prime item, for a reasonable price! My son loves it, it's his new favorite Christmas show, that he was watching months after the holidays! It has fun songs and a good movie for the whole family!

In a nutshell, the storyline is about Trevor, a 12 year old tween who recruits his two nerdy science geek friends to prove Santa does exist to this cute little girl he is crushing on but who doesn't believe in Santa. They eventually succeed in doing just that, catching Santa, smack in the middle of Santa's Christmas eve romp. Using a laser device Trevor's wacky astronomer/scientist parents conveniently left hanging around unattended, Trevor & pals intercept a plan by a 100 year old goofball ice monster LeFreeze and his snowmen henchmen who were also trying to take out Santa for good themselves. Apparently, LeFreeze, from a new Ice Planet Trev's parents discovered and who was awakened after 100 years, has a grudge with Santa and tries every 100 years to finally put Santa to bed, permanently. [Insert evil laugh here]

My challenge: Review the movie with a range of children, my kids
Cast of challengers: Me & My kids A.k.A. The Mischiefmakers
The Reviewers: Me eager working mom, blogger, wife
Cboy aka "the Tween" (7 ): cynical and snarky kid who is into video games, computers, tech gadgets & is too smart for his own good sometimes and other than an occasional Spongebob or classic Tom & Jerry, has moved on to kids shows with real people in them like iCarly (which I think is a bit too old for him, but that's another post for another day)
Jboy aka the "Middle boy" (4) : classic angst-filled middle kid who has a wonderful imagination, is curious, energetic & loves movies and has the patience to sit through a movie 1 hour long or more
GG aka the "Toddler" (22 months): typical toddler who is easily entertained by moving sound, objects and music. She's along for the ride.
