A cynical guilt trip made to sell toys

This was absolutely terrible. Half the time it was a heavy handed morality play, bemoaning how we all buy things. The other half of the time it was showcasing their newest product, with cuts to the brand logos and how to use it. And showcasing the other elf toys. The animation and acting were bad, too, and they got in a weird scene with a church when it's not an explicitly religious movie. It just felt really manipulative and gross. My five year old loved it and wouldn't let me turn it off.
