Contest: The Naughty List

posted by Nell Minow

Even Santa’s elves sometimes find themselves on the naughty list.  In this very cute animated DVD, elf brothers named Winter (Sean Astin) and Snowflake (Drake Bell) have a hard time following the rules of the North Pole.  When they accidentally wreck Santa’s Christmas tree, they find themselves on the Naughty List, along with a reindeer named Sparkle (“Glee’s” Naya Rivera), who is responsible for a “sleigh incident.”  Under the stern supervision of a robot named Tinsel (Matthew Lillard), they are punished with boring chores, but they just get in more trouble, finally giving food poisoning to everyone — even Santa (Kyle Chandler) —  just before Christmas.  The only ones who can save the day are the Naughty List-ers.

Movie Critic Ann Hornaday Comes Out as...a Christian
Washington Post movie critic Ann Hornaday wrote a brave and very moving essay about being a writer sustained by Christian faith and how that affects the way she approaches all films and especially those with religious themes. As a critic, my first obligation is to assess each of these films not as
