Wow. That was horrible. I can't even put in to words how much I regret spending money on this movie. I am giving this movie one star only because Amazon won't let me give it zero! What is the traget audience for this movie? I really don't get it. There was nothing here for kids, nothing for the parents. I'm not sure who they thought would be amused by this movie but I know that it wasn't me. Believe it or not, this was not the worst movie I've ever seen. Oh, but it was awfully close!

Why on planet krypton’s ghost does this exist?

The “film” opens on a pirate ship where captain Santa Maria Clausewitz Kringle and his brother Dingle steal toys, but Santa leaves a basket of toys with a note to an orphanage in the water. (Presumably to be found and taken there)

The brothers spend their free time bowling on deck and in preparation Santa tells the crew to “grab their balls”. I’m NOT making that up.
Dingle is found cheating and the brothers get into a fight and are thrown overboard and frozen in the water. The wash up at the North Pole and Santa lies his way into the elf legend of “white beard” becoming ruler of the elves and, well, becoming Santa.

The main struggle comes when Dingle wants to overthrow his brother because after a few thousand years he never left Santa’s couch, even after he gained a Mrs. Claus. Dingle kidnaps the elves and takes them to Fiji and Santa has to fight to get them and Christmas back.
The film is bad but it’s somewhat enjoyably bad. With a lot of bad jokes mixed in with (very) few good ones, Elf Bowling: The Movie is a great riffing film.

My only complaint (other than the production values, jokes, songs and writing) is the tone of the film is all over the place. It wants so bad to be a DreamWorks film but fails. It wants to mix in more mature humor, but ends up making more bad puns and questionable situations like Mrs. Claus’ strudel. Also, at one point when they are showing Santa’s raise to fame, they show him on the cover of “Spanish Inquisition Monthly”. They make throwaway references to Halliburton (thanks to my brother for pointing that out) and there are a lot of things done and said that anyone with a dirty mind could have fun with.

Also Dingle Kringle is voiced by Tom Kenny. (WTS?

I bought this movie knowing that it was more than likely going to be a stinker. Even so I was still hugely disappointed. I didn't know it would be this pathetic. The movie had the thinnest of plots which was horribly conceived and executed. The animation was tolerable but by today's standards still on the low end. The movie might have been a bit more endurable if the elves and voices were more like the hilarious ones in the game. In the movie, other than being shorter than Santa and having pointy ears, there was nothing elf-like about the elves.

At the very least the makers of the DVD could have added as a bonus feature the original Elf Bowling game that the movie was "loosely" based on and the follow on game.

The makers of this movie should be made to walk the plank.

Umm, this is one of the weirdest movies I've ever seen in my life-not automatically a good thing. There are parts that are good, and parts that suck or just plain deflate. It's cliche in some areas (in several different ways) and then it's actually funny twice or thrice. Towards the end, I felt like I was on something, and basically it was a cluster-fugezi. I think this movie is not something a completely sober mind can handle. And I mean that. You probably won't get this description until you watch it all the way through. I'm not sure what they were going for, but it's no Kung-Fu Panda. It's...something that keeps you wondering what they were going for; and how many people were working on this movie that were either not collaborating or half-stoned. If you end up making it all the way through the excruciatingly dull/subpar parts (easier if you're not watching it with somebody and embarassed), I can promise you one thing: you will never forget it. I think I would describe it as slightly schizophrenic. BTW--not for kids if you are worried about slight vulgarity and innuendo. That just adds to the weirdness!

I rented this movie based on the product description. Sounds really cute, and fun for the kids. The humor is awful. How much "armpit-farting" do we have to endure? Really, I may have only spent $1 at a RedBox rental station, but it was $1 too much.

I'm glad I didn't buy this!

I streamed this movie a few months ago. After watching TheMysteriousMrEnter's review of this movie, I just had to see what it was. I gave up 50 minutes into the movie. This is not a good Christmas movie and Santa Claus was NEVER a pirate, nor did Christmas had nothing to do with bowling. To be honest, I did not find this movie just plain bad. I found it hilariously bad. Even worse than Foodfight!.

The animation is hilariously bad, and to be fair, Foodfight! and Where the Dead go to Die have way better animation than this movie. The characters are blockheads, and they are also annoying. The voice acting is also hilariously bad. The plot is pointless and confusing. The humor is godawful and most jokes are either stupid or would mentally scar a child (I know this because I am NOT a child, and I was still disgusted.). And did I mention that Spongebob's voice actor plays Dingle, Santa's "brother"? Tom Kenny is quite a talented man, but he did not deserve to be in this movie.

This is basically the Foodfight! of Christmas movies, and yet it makes those Disney movie ripoffs from Video Brinquedo look like Hayao Miyazaki's work (Yes, I do love Miyakazki's movies. Totoro is adorable!). I would rather watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation than this pile of crap.

Sigh...
