My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
Sounds like one to catch by accident someday next year whenit appears on TBS...Such a shame...What a great cast! Oh well...Nobody messes with Santa and profits from it...Thanks for the review Jeff! You saved me twenty bucks!
Nothing is more important than the soundtrack!!!
I am 31 years old and you will be hard pressed to find someone who loves Christmas as much as I do. Who loves the magic of Santa Claus as much as I do. And this is coming from someone with no children.
I went and saw Fred Claus on Friday as I had been waiting for it for over a year. I had a year to build my expectations and the movie lived up to every one of them. I didn't go into it expecting a fluffy feel good Christmas movie as I didn't go into it expected an adult oriented CHristmas movie like Bad Santa. It was just what I expected, somewhere in the middle. I think that it's a movie that I will watch every Christmas as I am big on rewatching the same Christmas movies every year.
I didn't see anything wrong with the content as far as having children watch it. The magic of Santa Claus is there and represented magnificently by Paul Giamatti. Some of the humour in it is adult oriented. Not meaning that your children are going to hear a lot of swearing or sexual innuendo. I think that more or less a lot of the humour would simply go over there heads. Vince Vaughn brings his type of high impact quick talking humour and alot of it your kids won't understand it. However the things he says are funny.
I came out of the movie thinking that it could have been wrapped up a little better but all in all a very fun movie with a great message and a satisfying way to add to my holiday cheer.
All of the reviews I have read say alot of the same things as the previous poster but I wanted to give my mini review and say don't be deterred by thinking that this is a bad movie and not a potential Christmas classic. IMO my younger neices and nephews wouldn't understand It's a Wonderful Life but that doesn't make it a bad movie.
I would be more against wanting them to watch Miracle on 34th Street with all the non believer talk than I would for them to watch this movie. Christmas movies are about embodying the spirit of Christmas. Whether it is done in a way that reinforces all the familiar traditions or whether it does something completely different should not be the gage you use to determine to see Fred Claus. It was fun and it added to my holiday enjoyment so I give it a thumbs up. Skip the reviews and make your own decision. Don't expect Bad Santa, don't expect It's a Wonderful Life. Just enjoy Fred Claus.
Evening everyone, i went and saw this movie tonight it was actually really good. Some parts were kind of..farfetched such as santa getting fired, but other than that, the scenery and everything was wonderful. I reccomend this movie.
