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~

Absolutely delightful! My six year old laughed through the entire movie. It manages to incorporate all childhood magical characters into a worthy story. We will buy it on DVD so we can see it again and again.

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!

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 really wonder why writing, which requires only a pencil and a piece of paper, seems to the the component most often neglected in film making.
Everyone tries real hard to make it fun. It gets maudlin.
