Kids say (5):

This merry sequel deserves a spot on Santa's Nice List for its blend of comedy, holiday spirit, and family-friendly messages. Rare instances of salty language and some mild sexual references will probably go over kids' head, but the story may resonate more for tweens and teens, who might be ble to identify with Mary's struggles to define herself apart from her parents' expectations.

If your family does tune in, enjoy the movie's lovely scenery, jolly elves, and imaginative spin on traditional Christmas folklore. McCarthy is lots of fun as the ambitious and duty-driven Mary, and parents will get a knowing chuckle over Santa's desire to throw in the towel on responsibilities that become too overwhelming. And though Teri breaks some moral rules in her quest for control, she makes amends for it in the end -- just in time for Christmas, naturally.
