A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"No coal in the Christmas stocking for this entertaining family show, which sticks close to its source material while establishing an engaging personality of its own."

The Hollywood Reporter

David Rooney

"Zac Ballard, as younger brother Randy, is a delight. Director John Rando borrows film techniques like freeze-frame and simulated slow motion to great effect."

Entertainment Weekly

Tanner Stransky

"You’d have to have a Grinch-size heart not to feel a smile spreading across your face..."
