Means well, but doesn't come out with anything memorable. I did enjoy Anna Kendrick in the role of 'Noelle', she keeps the film moving along fairly well. It's the humour and writing which is the issue. The former is hit-and-miss, some of it lands but a lot of it doesn't - the running joke about the Apple product is lame. The latter, meanwhile, is pretty plain and predictable, there's nothing all that fresh about this - except the, bare minimum, positive message. The special effects aren't great either. Fine for an Xmas watch, but nothing more unfortunately.
