Very cliche

Personally, this movie was a hot mess. NO ELF SHOULD BE TALLER THEN SANTA CLAUS HIMSELF!!!! I usually picture elves are short, stumpy fellas who slave over santa’s desire to feed kids with presents. Not BASKETBALL PLAYERS!!!! The end is incredibly cliche too. When I saw that hummer pull up the the house, I was like OMG, this movie wasn’t lying!!! A hummer does indeed qualify as the ultimate Christmas present! Then, the father confesses that the ultimate Christmas present is family… 😡😡😡 DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE IF YOU VALUE YOUR CURENT MENTAL STATE! Actually, DON’T WATCH THIS MOVIE AT ALL!!!!
