The true magic of 'The Year Without a Santa Claus' is missing from this live-action remake.

Fine for kids, but not really good

I've watched this on ABC Family and I got so bored, I didn't watch the whole thing. It's pretty boring, and doesn't have much appeal. From what I saw, I saw Santa was grumpy and complaining about his job, and doesn't show the personalities of the other Santas that are in other Christmas specials. It's fine for kids, but they probably won't like it. Violence: Some mild slapstick violence and peril, but nobody gets seriously hurt. Sex: Some women are apparently shown to be clad. Drinking: A character apparently drinks beer in front a young kid and a man in a Santa costume apparently drinks from a flask.
