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.

What Happened to All the Great Quotable Movie Lines?
Michael Cieply has a fascinating piece in the New York Times about the movie lines we love to quote and why there don't seem to be any new ones. Look through all of the top ten lists of the year, and see if you can think of one quotable line from any of them. That doesn't mean they aren't well wri
