This will be one of my favorites and a must have in my DVD collection. It's up there with what I consider my favorite movies of all time. I think I enjoyed it even more than my kids did. It's magical, much more so than Polar Express which had always bored me.

The makers of this movie gave themselves a chance to reinvent those iconic childhood characters and did a great job at that. Every single character is interesting and extremely lovable. Take the kids for sure!!! Beautiful art and animation as well.

They kind of stuffed a bunch of plot into a movie but the material was probably more appropriate for a mini-series. Hence, the brisk through stories that combine in a not-so-good manner but it definitely worked for my family crew. I'd give it a 2.5/5 but my family is probably at/above 4 our of 5. My wife was even mad that I didn't really like it much. Oh, well. Your call!

Inspirational and entertaining. Each of the characters was unique and charming! A modern day fable that was both engaging and heartwarming. This is a 'must see' for all ages.

Great Movie for adults and kids. As a single person on Christmas Eve it was great to hear the children laughing at parts of the movie, they seemed totally engaged and offered quite a bit of applause at the end.
For myself, Dreamworks may actually have matured beyond putting endless Hollywood in jokes in the movie ( think Shrek ). The 3D/HD animation was outstanding and the characterization was good. That each of the spirits had strengths and weaknesses was pleasantly portrayed. The underlying theme of preserving the wonder and joys of childhood as expressed in the characters sentiments was very nicely drawn over the length of the movie. Jack Frost's coming of age, so to speak, as a guardian was one of the nicest character revelations that I've seen in awhile. Also the little visual sidebar scenes of the small elves being themselves was very funny.
Go and Enjoy and listen to the kids laughter, it's worth the price of admission.
