Editorial Reviews

Two fabulously funny animated holiday classics brought to you by a brilliant creative team including writer Richard Curtis (Bridget Jones' Diary, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill) and directed by Richard Goleszowski (Wallace & Gromit, Rex The Runt)
Robbie the Reindeer in Hooves of Fire - He's a bit lazy, a bit chubby, and totally lovesick. Robbie is at a crossroad in life and is soon convinced he's hopelessly unfit to join Santa's sleigh team. So begins his first hilariously hip adventure, as Robbie learns there is no easy route to success and that hard work and talent get rewarded in the end.
Robbie the Reindeer in Legend of the Lost Tribe - Follow Robbie as he sets out to discover a mythical tribe of lost Viking warriors to help him save his friends from another dastardly plot by the evil Blitzen and his new-found partner-in-crime The White Rabbit. Robbie is having girl trouble too - Donner is feeling neglected and decides to give Robbie an ultimatum. Can Robbie save the day, keep his girl and unravel the mystery of the Legend of the Lost Tribe?

DVD Features:
Audio Commentary:Director Commentary
Biographies:US and UK vocal talent biographies

Okay, so these aren't as great as the Wallace and Gromit films, but they are pretty funny. We actually like "The Lost Tribe" better than "Hooves"; it is wackier and has more action - and Vikings! Blitzen's evil is delightful; his comparison of power and toast just cracked me up! There's more than a hint of Monty Python about "Lost Tribe" (the Viking flashback sequences are a key example).
We found the US voice versions really flat and always listen to the UK versions; I think that the US version was done so that American audiences would have voices that they recognized, but Jane Horrocks' voice beats Britney Spears' voice hands down!
One note - neither of the stories is actually about Christmas, but they ARE about reindeer and the North Pole. Our two year old loves the films, and we like them quite well, but what you think of them will depend on what you were expecting.

This is a fantastic short that I've seen before on TV and thought wow I'll buy the DVD. No real regrets but what a shock and disappointment I got when I noticed a distinct change in voice overs. What they've done is taken away those wonderful characterful voices from the original and dubbed over weak and uninvolving American voices. Who do we think we are changing something this good just because they are not home grown accents. This is arrogant and to be frank all I dislike about this great but often self-centered country of ours.

These two short films are a bit thin on plot perhaps, but they are well worth watching just for the sight gags and throw-away lines. The grown-ups in our house enjoyed them as much as the kids did.

Now, this is important: don't just put it in and hit "play," or you will get the re-dubbed U.S. version. The American voices are not nearly as funny as the original British/Irish ones. Work your way through the options menu and choose "U.K. voices."

All in all, Robbie is not quite up to Wallace and Gromit standards, but it's close. This DVD is a nice holiday complement to Charlie Brown and the Grinch.

Um, when looking at this DVD to replace the one my 2 yr old wore out I was surprised to locate other descriptions elsewhere which talked about using american voices for the soundtrack! It appears above you can still hear the "Alternate UK Vocal Track" So 3 stars for changing the voices!!! Amazon you may want to revise your description. Not to mention the second story on it.

As for the original Robbie it is a riot. There is so much to notice I still see new things the 50th (??) time around. My 2 yr old asks for Robbie every day. He likes to run in the reindeer games by racing around the house.

You could feel the chemistry between the cast members while listening to the voice overs.

The set comes with two stories and four voice tracks each, a British English version and an American English version. Both sets had a great, famous ensemble cast.

Both stories are enduring stories that point to expectations, failure, and redemption. While the stories involve North Pole themes and Christmas creatures from popular culture, these are not Christmas stories per se, i.e., if you want your kids to understand what Christmas is all about, you need to crack open that family heirloom and read Luke chapter 2 - it is still a riveting read nearly 2,000 years later. ;-)

In service,

Rich

I didn't ask for Ben Stiller and Britney Spears to voice over the actors in this amazing film! I am very disappointed. There is nothing better than the original version. Our whole family was looking forward to having this favorite on DVD for future Christmases. The charm and whit, the British accents, gone, the whole thing is ruined.

Buyers beware! "US Version" means they took out the heart of the movie! Make sure what you're getting is the original film and you won't regret it.

added later:
thank God! there is an "alternate" uk voicetrack! please please do not watch this movie without selecting it first in the audio options. yay, my purchase was not a total loss!
