Kids say (6 ):

BIG TIME CHRISTMAS is the kind of holiday special that tweens will like -- it's fast-paced, funny, and full of outlandish scenarios. Kendall (Kendall Schmidt), James (James Maslow), Carlos (Carlos Pena, Jr.), and Logan (Logan Henderson) are their usual charismatic selves, and the addition of big-name guests doesn't hurt the show's appeal at all. What's more, this show doesn't feel like a last-minute addition to bolster interest in a series or promote its musical features. There's a truly likable quality about it that makes it a success even as its own entity.

Entertainment aside, the show boasts sweet messages about Christmas spirit and making the holiday memorable, regardless of circumstances that seem to stand in the way. And in the end, the guys set aside their own desires and pull together to make the holiday special for an unlikely friend.
