    An entertaining but far from perfect holiday family film. The story drags on an inexplicable extra ten minutes after the resolution of the main story seemingly to round out a 90 minute runtime. There are some big laughs, but this film leaves an aftertaste of being over-rated. That being said, it is one of the few films to truly capture the feeling of being a kid at Christmas. 7 years 10 months ago

    I guess this is one of those films you have to grow up with.

    I found it tolerable by pretending the narrator was Adam West rather than the author of this drivel.

    The only time I got a laugh out of this was when Tony referenced it in Iron Man 3.
