This was a cute film that your kids will enjoy. It’s family friendly and a good watch.
Someone BADLY misunderstood the CRC
When this movie opened with a series of fake newspapers, zooming in on various poorly-written articles designed to whip far-right-wing Christian dominionists into an angry lather about The Nanny State, we knew we were in for a long two hours. And we were right! The acting is really, REALLY bad. The only vaguely likeable character is the B&B keeper, who is completely unhinged-she keeps yelling at an offscreen “husband” whom we never hear nor see, and who I’m pretty sure doesn’t exist, and her opening dialogue is about how many bees she has, and would the protagonist like to see her additional bees out back? As we watched this atrocity of a film, I clung to her few appearances, waiting for her to say something clearly intended to be sweet-but-quirky but inevitably landing as she-should-see-a-doctor-for-a-neurodegenerative-disorder-screening.
Now. The entire premise of this movie appears to be that the creators, who I would strongly suspect are a particularly persecution-obsessed couple of Christian dominionists, are real, REAL mad about the United Nations’ 1990 Convention on the Rights of the Child. “But,” you protest, “that sounds like a terrible premise for a Christmas movie!”
You are correct! It is! The creators have badly misunderstood the CRC, assuming that it means that children are no longer beholden by laws or rules set forth by adults of any stripe, and thus kids, no longer allowed by international law to be punished by any adults, are becoming NAUGHTY. Santa, and the film’s creators, are very upset about this, and think that parents should be allowed to discipline their children. I cannot stress enough that the CRC does not in any way prevent parents from disciplining their children. It does lay out the fundamental human rights of children to not be beaten, trafficked, or otherwise exploited; maybe the creators think it’s their God-given right to abuse their children? (Notably, this movie takes place in the USA, which has signed but not ratified the CRC, making the premise somehow even less plausible.)
On a less-meta level, the movie attempts a few distinct plotlines which it picks up and drops at whim, failing completely to tie them together. They carried on with the irrelevant Nativity Play plotline uninterrupted for so long that I was actually a little surprised when the elves, presumably the protagonists, came back into the picture. The two slightly more weighty plotlines, about all the children misbehaving and the confusing attempt at reviving an industrial small-town economy (with…berries that taste like Christmas…?), never get resolved on-screen, but are, respectively, pseudo-implied to be resolved at the end and written off as so infallible that it’s obviously going to work out fine, no further explanation necessary. Note: this is not true, and their explanation for how they were going to leverage a neighbor with unworked land who had “always wanted to run a vineyard” (for berries?) to create jobs for the entire town is concerningly nonsensical, the type of thing people who think they understand agriculture/fetishize the Rural American Farmer (TM) would find plausible. That’s bad writing, y’all!
Anyways, I love bad Christmas movies, but at nearly two hours long and with the worst writing and acting I have ever witnessed, I would skip this one. The occasional and unintentional comedy of the B&B lady is not worth it.
Happy holidays to everyone except the jerks who made this movie.
