Like a car accident unfolding before your eyes, it's impossible to look away even if only to see how just bad it can get.

There's no warmth to the movie, no good cheer or happiness, and (at risk of bathing in bathos), ne'er a hint of what makes the season special.

4 stars for bad-movie buffs, 1 star for the rest of humanity.

This is, without exaggeration, one of the single worst films ever made, which hasn't prevented it from becoming a cult classic.

Better than 'Mars Needs Women', but worse than 'Teenagers from Outer Space' . . .

shot in that hopeless, bad filmmaking style ... with the delayed, artificial rhythm of a trans-Atlantic phone call

This tacky attempt to make a kidpic about the Christmas spirit seems too retarded for even kids who will watch anything silly.

The plot, such as it is, proves it is possible to insult the intelligence of a three-year-old.
