| Good family and kids film
Jim Broadbent get's to play Santa twice, lucky man.

The film follows Santa reindeer are found running loose through the streets of London. Meanwhile an astonished 9 year-old Tom (newcomer Kit Connor) discovers Santa (Jim Broadbent) in the garden shed. He has crash-landed while test-driving his new sleigh and enlists Tom and his father Steve (Rafe Spall) to help him get back to Lapland. But what happens when Santa is arrested and thrown into prison?

Just looking at the advertisements for this film I already could guess what kind of film it was going to be, you know the stupid kid humor, poop Jokes and everybody doesn't believe that one or two character in the movie. Well I can say some of those really bad clichés are in the movie, but what really surprise me is how grown up and how well behave the film actually is.

Jim Broadbent once again plays are favorite fat but lovable "Santa Claus", and just like in Arthur Christmas where he played like the forgettable Claus, in this he just played normal good all Santa and his so good at it. The Santa Claus we got in this movie was so caring, so joyful and just the sweetest man you could ever meet and Jim Broadbent perfectly cast in this movie.

The all film itself has it's heart felt moments. It has it's quiet moments and character talking about their problems not like in other kids film where the character's have problems of their own but never get's bought up like ever. This is a good lesson for kids, teaching them about silents and dealing with yours and other peoples problems. It's not like some stupid kids film that only allow on loud, annoying and straight up nails to the skin humor.

It's funny how the son in the movie is actually pretty smart then the father, and the father himself acts like his 14 years old. I don't know why but that always makes me laugh, like the really adult is actually the little boy and the real kid is the adult.

My only problems with the film is some the poop Jokes and the other clichés that I named out at the beginning,they isn't a lot in the film but every time the movie makes a cheap poop Joke I won't lie a rolled me eyes.

Get Santa has to be the biggest surprise of a movie from this year. The movie a good time with you family or children it's better then most of the rubbish kids films out there.

From me to you, Merry Christmas everyone
