Synopsis: When Santa Claus is arrested, it’s down to a boy and his ex-con father to bust him out and save Christmas.
Christmas movies are easy to get wrong. There’s a very fine line between festive flop and Christmas classic, with the next Elf liable to turn into a retread of Jingle All The Way very quickly indeed. The latest attempt at crafting an enduring film for the holiday season is British comedy Get Santa, which is a film of lo-fi appeal and simple pleasures.
