Bring your headphones for Sony's additions of the Justin Bieber song, but don't let that or even the horrible poster puns fool you into thinking this CG Aardman cracker is a bad movie. While it can be compared to Prep and Landing, this has all the heart, inventivity, character/story focus and quirk that Pixar failed to bring us this year. That, and you might never look at the North Pole the same way again.
Surprisingly, this was a fun little film. The animation was a little bland, but there were some great and memorable moments (mostly involving the grand-Santa, honestly). All in all, good for the holidays - but that's about it.
