Despite snarky reviews and even snarkier coverage of financial underperformance of this film my 15 10 and 4 year old saw this movie with me and we really enjoyed it. Funny, imaginative and a greatstory combine to make a unique and engrossing holiday movie. We enjoyed the 3D version but it isn't critical to see it this way. Lots of discussion after the movie about St. Nicholas etc as well so some educational value. Great holiday film.
