First off not a big Adam Sandler fan. Couldn't stand Billy Madison, Big Daddy, or Mr. Deeds. Now forget all that rubbish and buy this movie! This is without a doubt my favorite Holliday movie! Sandlers sophomoric humor actually blends really well with the animation style and plot. Don't take it too seriously! Don't go in expecting a feel good holiday movie like A wonderful life, ect, ect. This movie is about an A-hole who actually develops as a character. Not in the normal way where by the end of the movie they are a whole different person, but in a believable "Eh, he is still a jerk, but at least less of a jerk than what he was." kind of way. The songs are fun, the plot is fun, the whole movie is unique. I make my wife watch it every year. SHE hates it, but she is ultra hot so I can look past that minor flaw. I mean that's what love is all about right?
