Christmas in Wonderland kills Christmas and Chris Kattan's career in one fell Santa swoop.
With all due respect to his memory, it is truly execrable, a tawdry seasonal exploitation pic set almost entirely within a giant mall. Swayze fans, do yourself a favour and rent Point Break instead.
The note of morbidity lends faint interest to a film that's like spending an hour and a half inside an Argos catalogue.
The ensuing shambles features Tim Curry as a gormless copper, two Home Alone-style villains and the worst CG elves we've ever seen.
Swayze is given little to work with as the bewildered dad, while Tim Curry's shameless turn as a Royal Mountie with an inexplicable Scot's accent is sheer panto excess.
Traditionally dreadful Christmas comedy that's brought down by a combination of atrocious acting, terrible writing, cloying sentimentality and jaw-droppingly bad special effects.
Honestly pretty bad, even by Christmas movie standards.
With mum away, three kids go to the mall to do Christmas shopping with their dad (Patrick Swayze).
The kids of course get separated from dad, there's a silly plot with a bag of counterfeit money, and some bumbling villains trying to get it back. And a campy Carmen Electra in a series of bad wigs.
The cool mall is the best part - beautiful decorations and a pool in the middle of winter.
Kind of made me want to go shopping when I think family values are probably the message it is trying to achieve!
It made me laugh, for many different reasons. It's worth watching if you live in Edmonton, or just need laugh during the holidays.
