Every child wants to know the answer to the age old question, äóìHow does Santa deliver all of those presents in one night?äó This family movie review will not tell you the answer, you will have to see the movie for yourself if you want to know the answer. This movie guide will tell you that it involves some pretty high tech equipment. At the center of this plot is a family who is in a particular state of comic dysfunction. An unlikely hero, Arthur, steps in to save the day.

Ok, so it is a little more complicated than that. At the head of this high tech operation is the military minded genius in charge of Operation Santa Claus. The mission goes off every year without a glitchäó_.until this year. This year, one child has been left behind and as Santa dictates, no child will be left behind. In the end, Santa must take to his sled the old fashioned way, abandoning his high tech ride for his traditional sled and reindeer to save the day. This movie is filled with jokes about the jolly old elf and his traditional way of doing things. Santa had to be come more hip and high tech in order to survive in todayäó»s world.

The MPAA rated the movie PG for rude humor. However, as we all know, that is what makes our kids laugh, much to our chagrin. We know that they will grow out of it someday, so we might as well as enjoy it while it lasts. This movie is for the very young, with a cut off around school age and you all know why. This is a great movie and is suggested for the very young and the very young at heart.

This movie solves an age old question that every child wants to know. If your child is bugging you about how Santa does it, take them to see this movie, it will save you some hassle. You will also know the answer behind UFOs, armies of elves, and flying reindeer. Once they know, there will be no doubts in their mind or yours that Santa is real. Do you believe in Santa, I do. This family movie guide thinks that this one is a must see for the very young at heart of all ages.
