Fred Claus

This was a pretty cute show that was in theaters last year, and just came out on video. It tells the story of how Nicholas became a saint (when you become a saint you and your family stop aging--did you know that?). St. Nick's brother Fred doesn't like him, and thus hates Christmas. He gets in a bind and ends up working at the North Pole for a few days to earn money.

Anyway, it was pretty good. The kids seemed to like it. One of the characters that worked at the North Pole was way too scantily clad. Other than that, it was a pretty happy movie with a good ending.
