This movie caught my eye when the trailer was shown and my Husband and I took our 11 year old son to see this on Thanksgiving. Very animated, clean storyline for kids, and very well done. I enjoyed it from start to finish. We saw it in 3D and I think it would have been OK to see without it, but we enjoyed it all the same. For young age children who still believe, and for us adults who believe in the spirit of things, this movie is a must see, I can't wait for the DVD so I can buy it. This one is a keeper...Please make a part II~

I really really liked this movie. It was more exciting than I thought it was going to be, and more bad***, too. The whimsical holiday stuff was nicely balanced with humor and action, to the point where nothing felt super forced. For a movie ABOUT the imagination and believing in magic, it never felt too hamfisted or underdeveloped.

Went to see the movie with my family at Carmike. It was a late show and we had the theater almost to ourselves. However, the coziness and the fact that there was no crowd only enhanced our experience. The place is clean, the people friendly, the picture and sound excellent.
The movie is appealing to all generations. We loved it and will definitely make sure to see it again. Teaches some good points about life worth values!

Great Animation, great voice characterizations, story was average and predictable, fun characters and situations. Perfectly NOT scary but suspenseful and appropriate for younger kids as well as tweens. 3D was especially pretty.

I took two 8 year old boys to this movie and they loved it. I thought it was very good as well. I wouldn't advise taking small children as it might tend to scare them a little. The 3D effects were very well done.
