better than the original
Since I've never seen the original.This one is more of a comedy too.This time the central character is a boy named Charlie.He has just moved to town(the same town where the first one took place).He meets a man named Tom and asks why Prancer is not on the display.He says about 10 years ago a girl named Jesse found a injured reindeer who was Prancer.She raised him until Christmas Eve when he was reunited with the others.So every year in that town,on Christmas Eve they reunite Prancer with the others on the display.Then we meet Charlie's mom and older brother(who argue a lot).His brother wants to live in Chicago with their dad(they are divorced).Then one day when Charlie is walking home from detention for throwing a snowball at his principal.He is in the woods and sees a baby reindeer.He chases and then finds a old,dead reindeer(Prancer).The baby is Prancer's kid.Charlie names him Prancer after his dad.He teaches him stuff like how to deliver presents and stuff since he will take Prancer's place.After the first few days at Charlie's house,Prancer stays in a barn since he cant stay at the house.But one night he escapes,follows Charlie to school,bites the principal for being mean to Charlie.Animal Control comes and tries to catch Prancer,maybe even kill him.Now Charlie,Tom and the rest have to get Prancer back with the others before any then happens to him.This is a good,funny movie.7/10.
