Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that since this is the first Christmas-themed movie of the season, kids might be extra interested in seeing it. The trailers and ads feature the comedy's silly elves and slapsticky nature, and that's exactly what you get (along with a heaping sleighful of brand-name toys). This is no serious, high-minded holiday story; it's a simple comedy about Santa's jealous brother. While there's nothing scary or troubling in the movie, there are a few scenes of couples kissing (including Santa and his wife, and two elves) and a sad moment when an orphan says he doesn't believe in Santa. Fred and Santa get into a fight, as do Fred and a group of angry Salvation Army Santas, and there's some relatively mild language ("crap," "hell," etc.).

Sexual Content

A few couples kiss; Willie flirts with Charlene; Charlene wears a skimpy Santa outfit.

Violence

Fred is followed by a bunch of Salvation Army Santas and gets into a slapsticky fight with them. Nick and Fred get into a wrestling match/snowball fight, during which they crash into things, fall on the floor, etc.

Language

Language includes "crap," "hell," "idiot," "shove it," etc.

Social Behavior

Sends the message that, despite their differences, brothers should stick together. Another message is that no kid is truly naughty -- they all have reasons for behaving "badly."

Consumerism

Lots of brand-name toys in Santa's workshop, including Hello Kitty, Thomas the Tank Engine, Care Bears, and many more. Salvation Army Santas; Toys R Us; Gap bags; mentions of Supernanny, Patty Hearst, Superman.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The elves hang out at Frosty's Tavern, but there's no evidence they're actually drinking
