Santa's clumsy son Arthur sets out on a mission with St. Nick's father to give out a present they misplaced to a young girl in less than 2 hours.
As well as Arthur Christmas James McAvoy also starred in Atonement (2007) which also featured a character named Briony.
Why are we taking this reindeer? It isn't a real one! It's a fake!
Grandsanta: It is for Gwen! Eight beautiful reindeer! Isn't that what she is dreaming of? The jingly bells, The Sleigh on the roof! Not some kind of spaceship! We are supposed to be giving her ...
When Arthur jumps out of the sleigh into Trelew, England to get to Gwen's house in time, he uses Santa's toy sack as a parachute. He has the bike grasped to his body but when the toy bag turns upside down as he's floating to the ground, a toy falls out meaning that they missed not just 1 present but 2, and that they didn't just miss Gwen.
After the end of the credits, there is a seven second scene, all in black silhouette on a blue background. One of the elf-lowering-cables descends, pauses, then lifts up an elf, who proceeds to throw snowballs at the screen until it's all black.
Also shown in 3D version.
