Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Good There's no shortage of yuletide movies this time of year, but Arthur Christmas is somehow hip and square enough to stand out among them.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Good It's also unexpectedly fresh, despite the familiar-sounding premise.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 74 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:The kids loved "Arthur Christmas." Nearly all gave it extremely high reviews.
TEENS:The seven teens all enjoyed it very much with half loving "Arthur Christmas."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Two of the four females loved it and two enjoyed it very much, rating it above average. The one male also loved it.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are very similar. Close to half loved "Arthur Christmas." Another large percentage rated it above average, indicating they enjoyed it very much. Approximately 20% rated it average or lower. For an animated movie targeted at kids, these are very good reviews from adults. "ARTHUR CHRISTMAS" IS A GREAT FAMILY MOVIE FOR THE HOLIDAYS!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Imagine a city under a starlit sky. It's Christmas Eve, and the children are nestled in their beds, dreaming of Santa on his sleigh pulled by eight beautiful reindeer. Suddenly, a shadow comes over the city. A million pinpricks of light. A million figures descend. The invasion has begun and there's not a jingle bell to be heard…

…but don't panic. This is how Santa gets the job done every Christmas: with a huge, mile-wide, state-of-the-art sleigh with stealth cloaking technology, and a million elves, working in precision teams of three, who have 18.14 seconds to get into each house, deliver the presents, and move on to the next one.

Santa Claus is coming to town, but this time, he's not coming down the chimney.
