Family Fun Christmas Spirit.
This is a lovely Christmas film, full of the Christmas spirit and magic.
Being Disney, there are some things that you expect, like a good story, with decent actors and actresses, and special effects that give Disney it's magical touch. You will not be disappointed in this movie. Unlike the lower budget movies where the animals talk without moving their mouths or even directing their speech, here you'll believe dogs and reindeer can speak. The voice actors carry the script and characterisation off very well
The secondary human actors also do a great job. To be honest I only watched this movie to see how Cheryl Ladd (Mrs. Clause) was doing, as she's a favourite actress of mine but I've not seen her in anything for a while. She's still beautiful - lucky Santa - and still a good actress. Her portrayal as the loving Mrs Clause was spot on.
Even though, this is a musical I found that the songs weren't too grating and the actress playing Sarah Reynolds, Kaitlyn Maher, has a wonderful voice.
I really enjoyed this tale and would recommend it to all, young and old alike.
