05.25.09Netflix This came and went with no attention at all and I wanted to see this and understand why. I mean, good cast, funny enough premise, Wedding Crashers was pretty funny... why no love for this?

I guess it's no surprise that the movie is not really good at all. it's a weird hodgepodge of pessimistic comedy and you-must-cry-now special moments, neither of which work particularly well.

Two things really bugged me about the movie.

1. Most of the elves are midgets with tall actors' faces digitally grafted onto them. This is really really weird and bugged me out every scene.

2. There are zany sound effects for every crash and slap or whatever. And not just the north pole stuff but real life stuff as well. Sorry, but if I crash through a mall, there won't be clown honks and noises following me at every turn.

oh well.
