      Amy Curtis We Got This Covered The film presents interesting historical information with a great Christmas-y soundtrack, making for a somewhat enjoyable watch. Rated: 6/10 Jun 2, 2013 Full Review John Gholson Cinematical It's charming, informative, and, best of all, really funny. Feb 9, 2012 Full Review Christopher Campbell Movies.com Surprisingly hilarious without being too mocking nor too cute. Rated: 4/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Erik Childress eFilmCritic.com This is a more honest (and certainly less hokey) manifestation of a true Christmas story; the kind that should be added to the spate of annual holiday fare. Like perhaps on a double bill with Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. Rated: 3/4 May 11, 2011 Full Review Fred Topel Screen Junkies I don't think Jack ever got it. He remains cynical when working with real children. He makes jokes at the expense of babbling incomprehensible kids. Look, we know it makes no sense, but you don't have to joke about it with their parents. Mar 31, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member This documentary was a little uneven, but Jack's story was still eye opening and even touching at times. I also liked learning about some of the history of Santa.
