Eh, I was amused by Cossack!Santa, but that's about it.

The Tooth Fairy's voice reminds me of the female PC voices for Neverwinter Nights 2, all of which I disliked.

Just amused?
Shoot I am going to see it specifically because of Badass, Tattooed Sword wielding Santa!

This is why I'm glad Dreamworks does multiple movies each year.

They produce 1 crappy cash grab. (*cough* Madagascar 3) 1 serious piece. And occasionally a third that's a comedic piece with at least some depth that could go either way.

I kind of want this to top 'How to Train Your Dragon'. I was watching this trailer and I was waiting for that cheap punchline to come, but it never came. :) Pixar's 'Brave' is gonna have some competition at the Oscars this year.

Just amused. I think I'd like Cossack!Santa more taken in isolation. The scenes trying to set up the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy in the same way make me less favourably inclined.

And why is the Easter Bunny Australian? Do you know what we do to rabbits in Australia?

The way I see it, someone on the writing staff thought it would be a good idea to reference another popular large, robust, strong Russian from pop culture with their Santa by putting him alongside a Thin, Outdoorsy Australian

Sometimes there's a sense of art and sometimes it just falls flat. I get a vibe from this movie of focus-grouped crap.
