Movie Info

Matt Groening helped produce this animated adaptation of the popular children's book written by J. Otto Seibold and Vivian Walsh. Olive (voice of Drew Barrymore) is a little dog who is very excited about the upcoming Christmas holidays, and wishes she could somehow help Santa Claus (voice of Edward Asner) with his work. Word begins to circulate that one of Santa's reindeer has hurt his leg and won't be able to make the trip, and when someone mentions "all of the other reindeer," Olive mistaken thinks they've said "Olive, the other reindeer," and is convinced Santa wants her to come to the North Pole to help pull the sleigh. Dan Castellaneta, Peter MacNichol, Diedrich Bader, and Tim Meadows also contribute to the voice cast; Michael Stipe from the band R.E.M. voices one of the characters and contributes a song to the soundtrack.

Audience Reviews for Olive, the Other Reindeer

This used to be one of my favorite movies...I'd always have to watch it in order to get into the Christmas mood. I still enjoy it now!

One of my favorite holiday flicks. Not only does it have some big names involved - Drew Barrymore, Matt Groening - but it takes its inspiration from the classic children's storybook. Much of the humor can be appreciated at two levels, as well. The musical numbers could be better, but is definitely recommend this for the children around the holiday season.

To be honest, I thought this was quite ridiculous. It had a charm at times, but it was overshadowed by a pretty random plot with non-believable (and in some cases unlikeable) characters and a lack of focus.
