Anarcho-Christmas cheesey brilliance,
First of all, this was the funniest film I have ever seen; I was in tears half way through. Yes, it is a kids' movie, but adults get to watch Will Farrel rip the heart out of Christmas by camping it up and being ridiculously sincere. Watching Farrel start a fight with a fake Santa for "sitting on a throne of lies" is about as fun as films get.
Those reviewers who think that this was cheesey nonsense - duh. It was supposed to be, and that is what made it so funny. And you seem to have missed the whole essence of the film.
Oh, and the kids liked it too.

terrible review. farrel doesn't "rip the heart out of christmas". hell, the whole point of the movie is how much christmas cheer buddy has, and how he eventually spreads it to everyone around him, even his father, who had zero christmas spirit in the beginning of the movie. also, buddy didn't even start that fight with the fake santa, the fake santa was the one who got physical. and no, this isn't a "kids movie", though kids CAN see it. it's more like a mature movie that doesn't use sex or violence to be mature.
