Convinced that the world's youngsters have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas, Santa (John Goodman) decides to take a year off from delivering gifts. His loyal elves Jingle (Ethan Suplee) and Jangle (Eddie Griffin) try to restore Kris Kringle's faith and counter the unhelpful influence of Sparky (Chris Kattan), the materialistic head elf. Delightful live-action remake of the holiday classic also stars Harvey Fierstein, Michael McKean, Carol Kane, and Delta Burke. 90 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1.
