THE CLAUS FAMILY (Theatrical Release Belgium 2020)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

The Claus Family—cute and sweet—presents a small twist on the Santa Claus story but does not have that freshness that an audience hopes for in a Christmas story. The storyline is a light, run-of-the-mill piece that is clean and decent for a child’s bedtime watch. The concept, as presented, needs a bit of rewriting to make the film pop. It is what it is…an easy-on-the-mind watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. It is a sweet idea but the adult audience may find it a struggle to finish the movie.
