This was the most enjoyable family movie I've seen in quite a while! The 3D was very well done. I'm not positive how well some of the scenes will translate into 2D. A very good story that was meaningful, thought-provoking, and brought back a little more of what I believe Santa originally started as. I highly recommend seeing this for both adults and children. One or two scenes might be too scary for very young children. I would consider this appropriate for ages 8 and up.
