Good sets
15 December 2001 | by claireejSee all my reviews

What the previous reviewer neglected to mention is that the sets used for the film were magical, in particular Santa's village, perfect. just how you would imagine an old time Christmas village to be. The script wasn't great, the plot was a cute premise, but the sets were a triumph.
