This is a cute continuation of an adventure many of us loved when the first movie was released in 1994. I think some people have forgotten that while there were elements directed at adults, this movie, and it's predecessors are children's movies. The slapstick comedy is for them! I think this sequel, keeps with the spirit of the first two and is a fun way to waste a bit of time. Also, I love the expansion of the north pole set including the amazing kitchen and Santa's office and family area.
