Santa spoilers

I’m writing this specifically because I spent twenty minutes looking for information about how Santa was handled in this and found nothing. The main character repeatedly refers to the mall Santa as “Roger” even in front of believing kids visiting him. The voiceover says something sarcastic about “speaking of factual things” regarding Santa. Another obviously fake mall Santa shows up complicating things further. Ultimately that guy has a little magic, but the movie doesn’t restore belief. I think this movie is best for younger kids with an unshakable belief or older kids who are past it all. I could see the wheels turning for my kid who is hovering on the edge of believing. Grumpy Cat also makes several references to death that could be disturbing to kids.
