    I'll go ahead and admit that I like most of the Aardman productions (mainly from the Wallace and Gromit realm), but transfer that animation sensibility from claymation-ish techniques to CGI animation, you still get a visually fun and interesting film about the logistics of being Santa Claus, and how does he manage to deliver all those toys around the world in just one night. But, I think it won't play as well to kids, as the scenes elicit grins, more than laughs for most of the film, so I don't know what the word of mouth will be for it, but I enjoyed it for the most part. I give it 2.75 stars, or a grade of B-.
