This is an update to my review. Although this is still one of my favorite movies, when I played it the other night, I found it was damaged. I carefully wiped it down, but it still had "errors". The movie was sealed, and was not used. I did not contact Amazon or the seller, since it was going to be more trouble than it was worth to return it. Hope others have a better experience.
But this is the first Christmas movie that I can recall that introduces the idea that Santa has a family and extended family at that. Plus the movie does not play down to silly stupid in the second half as a number of other Santa movies I could name do. So for the notion of Santa having a family, this is one I wanted for my granddaughter to see.
The movie is absolutely hilarious in places, yet provides many tender moments. This really is well worth purchasing and watching. It has a lot of modern jokes but nothing dirty or too adult (which seems hard to find nowadays, even at Christmas). I think adults will identify with the material more than kids since it reflects on the experience of growing from childhood to adulthood in the shadow of a more-favored sibling. This will become a Christmas classic for those us us born after 1950.
Kudos to the folks who brought us a modern take on Santa and how it would be to be related to him, in good ways and challenging ones. Do yourself a favor and see this movie.
