Gotta Catch Santa Claus DVD Review

I don't know about other kids, but with my kids, the moment the weather starts getting cold, they begin talking about Christmas! It's only October, but they act like Christmas is going to be next week. Not surprisingly, brands understand this and start releasing Christmas items early. On October 13, Lionsgate is releasing Gotta Catch Santa Claus, a new animated movie that will start airing on ABC Family's 25 days of Christmas.

Starring Will Shatner as the voice of Santa, I watched this movie with my daughter as it sounded cute and I know she loves Christmas and thinks it is coming soon. I can't tell you how many times I laughed! It was cute, clever, current and the animation was great. The plot is about a teenage boy who sets out to prove to the girl he likes that Santa Claus is real. He devises a plan with a couple of friends that will help him catch Santa. In the meantime, a monster named LeFreeze, who has a grudge against Santa, decides HE is going to get Santa and take him out of the picture.

Family Time Factor: Perhaps teenagers are too jaded to watch cartoon movies, but I actually think this movie could span all ages and would be fun to watch together for movie night! It's super cute and only 66 minutes, so makes for a quick and enjoyable watch.
