Horribly Schmaltzy Saccharine Sentimental Kids' Movie
- Foster review by PV
Sorry but I hated this and turned off halfway through. It is a sickly sweet, saccharine sentimental schmaltzy Christmas-y kids' movie, full of magic and sentimentality and other 'cute' overload. Reminds me of the awful BILLIONS and those awful NATIVITY TV movies.
Try renting DUMBO or BAMBI instead or THE LION KING - they have the same message but do it better.
