Scott's Review:
3 out of 5 stars on January 14, 2006

As amazing as it may seem, I've never seen this movie. I generally love Tim Burton's work, and while he didn't actually direct this movie, it still has his touch to it.

Even as it may feel like a Burton movie, there's not really that much here. It's a simple enough story about one of the characters in "Halloween Town" deciding that the life in "Christmas Town" is the life for him. Musical numbers ensue. There's not much more to the story than that. By no means is it a bad story, but there's not a lot here that grabbed my interest.

The visuals and the style of the movie helped though. It's really an interesting looking picture, so I stayed interested in it.
