Santa has scored another perfect Christmas Eve and is back at the North Pole to rest. But wait! A toy has been overlooked and not delivered! Who will save the day? Can Arthur, Santa's bumbling son, do it?
I loved everything about this movie. The animation is bright and beautiful, the script is witty, the pacing is quick, and it all ends happily. Children will love seeing Santa, the reindeer, and sleigh (even though he usually drives a solar-powered spacecraft aided by a NASA-like control room manned by elves) and adults will laugh nonstop at the very funny dialogue that combines traditional values with modern technology. Turn on the subtitles to catch them all.
The British cast features James McAvoy, Bill Nighy, Hugh Laurie, and Jim Broadbent and is outstanding. I was left with a big smile on my face. Recommended for all ages.
