If you watch this movie expecting something other than what it is, you will be disappointed. If you watch it and allow yourself to accept what it is, it’s exactly what it is which is a big dumb giant monster movie. There’s nothing wrong with that or this movie.
This may be the most morally bankrupt Christmas movie of all time. A) Complain the dad is working despite being the single income for family. B) Then complain that he isn't buying the latest hot toy which equals hate him for not buying your love. C) Forget all that when he bumbles into a situation where he looks like super popular toy and saves the day. Repeat for wife with "hilarious" post credits scene.
