Critics Consensus

Prancer's good-natured holiday cheer -- and a terrific performance from its young star -- are enough to make this yuletide adventure a moderately rewarding watch.

    Funny and charming, even if it is a typical Christmas film. Rebecca Harrell and Sam Elliott are wonderful.

    Little girls will probably like this. I'm too old and cynical.
