My son (17) and his friends loved it, especially the Russian Santa with the tattoos but my husband and I thought it was just OK. Maybe I'm over thinking but some explanation of why the "Guardians" look completely different from how most people see them in their mind's eye would help, Also why was the Boogie Man not called the Boogie Man but called Pitch Black? Needed more story development.
That said, teenagers love it and the fact that it was short was a plus

I would say this is a Christmas movie but it takes place about two or three days before Easter. The movie is very well done and the kids loved it!

My boys and a friend of my kid went to see this movie...age 5 to 8 years old. They like it. It was cute and whimisical. It's a GREAT family movie. It's a nice christmas story. I LOVE IT. My little one really enjoyed the movie. GREAT FAMILY MOVIE!

Wow, this was a great movie! I took my 9-year old and she literally sat on the edge of her seat the whole time. The entire FULL theater started cheering and clapping at the end; it was really wonderful. The story was incredibly meaningful and special and totally topped off the "belief" meter in my child, something I was worried about this Christmas at her age. Kids grow up so fast these days. Maybe now we'll get through this season with Santa intact for at least another year!

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!
