When a child is missed, Arthur Christmas, Santa’s clumsy son, and the elderly former Santa go on a mission to deliver her present.


It was cute. The current Santa is kind of a moron that just likes being Santa. He leaves all the real work to his son Steve who obviously doesn’t actually care about Christmas but just wants the title. Then Arthur, who loves Christmas, everything to do with it, is scared of everything and is more than happy to stay in the mail room.

There’s not really much to say about it. The elf Bryony was probably my favourite character. The story is entertaining. The grandfather is funny.


Anyway, I recommend it for something fun to watch. It’s not hilarious, but it’s cute and there are a few funny moments.
