I thought this movie was really cute, and enjoyed watching it with my children, while my husband slept on the couch. I also loved the Great Pyrnees as "Santa Paws". It's a lighthearted movie, the theme was Christmas being about giving, which was what God did when he gave us his son Christ Jesus. I don't think the person who gave the bad review watched the whole movie, it's fine.
Really? Its a movie about santa, and dogs. Lets all remember not to take life so seriously. It is an easy going fun movie for CHILDREN. Its good to know that not everyone has to believe in the same religion and can watch a light hearted movie. God bless america!
This movie is filled with new age crystals and the need for humanistic power to save Christmas. It never mentions the real reason(our Savior's birth) for Christmas, but has children praying to Santa. Children are drawn in by the cute dogs. There is a token singing of Silent Night at the end. Even Santa is reduced to a hopeless weakling without the power of a dog. The only positive element I found is giving to those less fortuntate is encouraged, while admirable it is not the reason for Christmas.
