What results has its moments of wily inspiration.

This witty, handsomely appointed 3-D animated feature is the most delightful Santa biopic since Edmund Gwenn donned the fat suit.

The movie runs a bit long and would benefit from fewer pit stops, but the gags are quick and often sharp.

Arthur is at its best during a world tour that takes McAvoy, his granddad and their sleigh from Toronto to the Serengeti. But often it seems familiar.

It's a delightfully funny Christmas tale with plenty of jokes for young and old alike.

A film that kids and grown-ups can enjoy in equal measure.

This animated feature from Aardman and Sony Pictures Animation is a feel-good family film with spunk and originality, the kind that has not been seen since the first of The Santa Clause franchise.

Bah humbug!

A new Christmas classic.

The Aardman animators know a thing or three about sight gags and throw-away lines, and they pile up quickly, here.

Arthur Christmas will snuggle you up into a big, hearty festive cuddle and refuse to put you down until you've hugged it back.

There are moments of charm and it is a sweet story which kids might find entertaining enough, but chances are they will become just as restless as my crowd as the film stretches on.

Arthur Christmas is a smart, funny, heartwarming story that will have you smile from ear-to-ear for the film's duration.

The settings, especially on the North Pole, are deliciously intricate and the characters understatedly quirky.

Original and inspired, this joyful animated frolic is seriously entertaining, audiences of all ages sure to eat up its heartwarming Yule-tied message of family, resilience and togetherness that's as touching as it is wonderful.

The movie's idea that Santa and his elves have turned the distribution of presents every Dec. 24 into a major military operation makes me more than a tad uneasy.
January 12, 2012
A plucky, clever animated Xmas tale that has much of Aardman's attention to quirky detail (bulbous noses), wordplay, and unconventional heroes (Arthur's fuelled by worry).

In a season unexpectedly full of quality family films, Arthur Christmas may have to fight for the attention it deserves, but if there was ever an example of a film that's a crowd-pleaser without talking down to its audience, this is it.

There are things you just wouldn't see in a Pixar or Disney movie. For example, one of the main elves has an eyebrow piercing, uncommented on. Even more than that: two of the boy elves kiss... each other. It's progressive.
