I love Jingle All The Way, Elf, The Santa Claus, and all those movies. I at least expected for this movie to be close to some of those. I was wrong. It was funny at times, and it had some good music, but it just lacked a really good story. It was an interesting plot to say the least, but the whole movie just seemed like they tried too hard to be different. I am not generally a traditionalist, but when it comes to Christmas I need something familiar. Maybe the idea of Santa having a brother was too much, or maybe there was enough laughs for me. Overall the movie just didn't entertain me as much as I thought it would.
