Based on the bestselling book, The Legend of the Candy Cane is an inspirational animated Christmas story brimming with Christian virtues. A stranger named John Sonneman and the young Matt, who has recently lost his parents, journey to the sleepy prairie town of West Sage in the company of a talking horse and a mountain goat that's afraid of heights. The newcomers' tempestuous acceptance into the small community effects positive change in the lives of themselves, the townspeople, and even the animals. As John Sonneman prepares to open a candy shop, he bestows a small but priceless gift on a now-motherless girl named Lucy--a red and white striped, peppermint candy cane replete with Christian symbolism. Bright animation, engaging Christian popular and jazz songs, and a timeless message about hope and the power of the individual make this a modern Christmas classic. DVD features include a "making of" segment featuring storyboards in progress and interviews with stars like Florence Henderson, Tom Bosley, and Malcolm-Jamal Warner; a discussion of how animation is done; and four songs--"I Think I Know," "Sleigh Ride," "View from My Window," and "Candy Cane Song." (All ages) --Tami Horiuchi

Boys and girls of all ages will love this DVD.

The DVD stayed away from the true message of the book and had talking animals and other characters that took away from the message in the book.
Gemms
Although the movie wasn't quite what I had expected, it is a good family movie with a great message!

I have heard of the "Legend of the Candy Cane" but have not read the book upon which this movie is based. For a "Christian" movie, I was quite disappointed with the weakness and almost "microscopic" portrayal of God in this DVD.

For kids with a steady "diet" of Hollywood and Disney based movie features, this DVD may be OK. It is certainly not an anti-family movie and in the end it does portray somewhat of a "typical" family with 2 parents and siblings.

My husband and I are very selective about the media (in all its forms - music, video, books etc.) and with such selective criteria, sometimes the selections seem rather sparse. In this DVD, there is a wolf which behaves as if it is a rabid wolf rather than your average hungry wolf; perhaps this is done for the effect of "drama" or suspense, but how necessary is it really to the story? Yes, there are frightening things in life, things which threaten to harm us; Scripture tells us that the enemy is out like a wolf that will scatter the flock, but wolves behave more stealthy than the glaring, yellow-eyed and foaming at the mouth wolf in this video.

The central focus of the "Christmas story" in this film is more about the "romantic Cupid-style" love depicted in our popular media rather than the love of God, who humbled himself by coming to the earth as a man, born to a virgin whose purpose was to redeem mankind from sin through His death on the cross and resurrection.

Also, there is a church in the film but it makes no discernible impact on the lives of the townspeople. The people of the town lack hope and the mysterious Candy man who comes to town does not offer Christian hope because he does not share the message of Christ with them in any meaningful way (i.e.

Once again I ordered this for my daughter who is a pre-school teacher to use in her class at Christmas time. All reports are that the children really enjoyed it, Great little book with a positive message.

The Granddaughters really liked certain parts of this movie. They did not market it to other young people, which speaks a lot of it's value to them.

I was greatly disappointed in this movie. It was so loosely based on the book that you could barley see the story. I was hoping for a companion DVD to the book for my children's Sunday school class. The DVD stayed away from the true message of the book and had talking animals and other characters that took away from the message in the book. When Lucy asked why the stripes were red she was told because somethings are special and it was a symbol.. A symbol of what.. is not said. I do not recommend the DVD if you want this to go along with the book. The children watched it an said it was ok, but they all agreed the book was much much better.

Delightful story about the origin of the candy cane especially set-up for children; our granddaughters loved it but it did not really appeal to the adults.
