Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

While the movie does have some unique elements, including an emphasis on science and several funny musical numbers, the overall tale is sort of blah. Never does Santa or Christmas actually seem threatened, and while the characters are pleasant and somewhat unconventional, they don't evolve in any remarkable way over the course of the story. The movie certainly has a lot of energy though, and this will be enough to keep most kids engaged.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
