IT IS NOT! It is horrible, creepy, and not at all what the preview makes it out to be. I wish I didn't show my child this movie, or myself. Please save your hard earned money and choose a different movie. I wish I could get my 5.99 back.
If I could give a zero star I would. 12 people found this helpful We thought this was a sequel to Elliott from last year and were excited to see what comes next. ALAS. They changed the image on the cover to put Eliott in a Santa cap and added a few more words to the title. It is the SAME movie as last year. That seems very unfair. My four year old granddaughter said 'They tricked us". Now I own it and I could be watching it for elliot the littlest reindeer elsewhere.
One person found this helpful A friend recommended this to me, and I was not disappointed. It's full of fun humor from simple to complex, bright colors and attractive art in all scenes. My favorite part is absolutely the characters! All the animals, from the little pony to the cocky reindeer were so much fun to go along with on this little adventure.
Best of all was the cute goat character who stole the show with her silly behavior! Well recommended for anyone who is a kid or a kid at heart! This movie is terrible. I purchased it after my 2-year-old asked very politely (the only miracle to emerge from this horror show). It had been on Netflix over the holiday, and then it just disappeared.
In protest Iâ€™ll be leaving my Christmas lights up for the duration of winter, btw. Iâ€™m surprised elliot the littlest reindeer the star power behind this otherwise crap movie. Martin Short, Josh Hutcherson, Samantha Bee, all give fine vocal performances followed up by terrible writing, a weak but convoluted plot, and glitchy video game quality animation.
Why did I spend the $10 to own this video? Because despite the exorbitant price over the crap quality, this item makes a great babysitter at 2am when my sweet little person doesnâ€™t want to be in the bed, when my parenting skills are at a daily low. Weâ€™ve (sort of) enjoyed this over and over again. One person found this helpful This kind of cartoon "for children" is part of why our society is so screwed up. If I would have saw in the preview the mean characters that took over the plot I never would have purchased it.
My 3 year old horrified until I could get to the remote to elliot the littlest reindeer it. Ridiculous.

The film premiered at last year’s South by Southwest Film Festival to rave reviews. In addition, Josh also completed production on a third James Franco film entitled The Long Home, a drama set in the 1940’s in rural Tennessee where a young man goes to work for a bootlegger unaware that he had murdered his father 10 years prior.
Josh and Michelle Hutcherson’s production company, Turkeyfoot Productions, partnered with Condé Nast Entertainment and Indigenous Media to launch five short films as part of “The Big Script,” an incubator featuring rising millennial filmmakers.

In 2012, he was honored with GLAAD’s “Vanguard Award” for his work with the LGBT community. Hutcherson currently resides in Los Angeles. Samantha Bee As Hazel Samantha Bee has quickly established herself as having one of the most unique and sharp comedic voices on television with her late-night show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Bee began her career performing as a member of the all-female sketch comedy troupe The Atomic Fireballs.
In 2003, Bee joined Comedy Central's The Daily Show's "Best F#@king News Team." Bee departed The Daily Show in 2015 and currently holds the title for being the longest-serving regular Daily Show correspondent of all time (12 years).
In 2016, Bee received global recognition from the success of her very own weekly late-night comedy series, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, which premiered Monday, February 8, 2016 on TBS. Full Frontal offers a unique satirical take on weekly news and explores other important stories in-depth that have been largely overlooked by more traditional media outlets.
Full Frontal received rave reviews, and the show was picked up by TBS for a full season within weeks of its premiere, and the show is currently in its third season. In a landscape of male late-night talk show hosts, critics have appreciated Bee's "fiery and fierce" delivery (The New York Times) and have embraced Full Frontal as a "daring, innovative addition to the late-night slate" (Entertainment Weekly). The show’s glowing reception earned Bee and Full Frontal three Primetime Emmy nominations in 2017, including “Outstanding Variety Talk Series” and “Outstanding Writing For A Variety Series,” for which the show also received a nomination in 2016.
In 2018, Full Frontal was again nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in the category of “Outstanding Variety Talk Series,” as well as “Outstanding Interactive Program,” “Outstanding Writing,” and “Outstanding Directing” for a Variety Series. Bee and her husband Jason Jones also co-created the half-hour comedy series, The Detour, which is currently going into its fourth season on TBS.
The Detour, which stars Jones, is inspired by their personal experiences on family getaways. The show follows Nate (Jones), Robin (Natalie Zea) and their two kids, Delilah and Jared, for what Nate believes will be the adventure of a lifetime on a road trip to Florida, which quickly turns into a disaster.
The series was renewed for second season ahead of its April 11, 2016 premiere.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our elliot the littlest reindeer that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
Parents need to know that Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer is an animated holiday movie that's a modern take on the classic story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. In this case, a miniature horse dreams of pulling Santa's sleigh. Just like Rudolph, Elliot (voiced by Josh Hutcherson) is discouraged by his elders and mocked/bullied by his peers for being different.
But the insults go beyond Elliot and his efforts: The characters interact through sarcasm, cynicism, and put-downs ("idiot," "stupid," "jerk," etc.). The movie's attitude, colorful vocabulary, (dated) pop culture references and topical jokes, and a "magic cookie" doping scandal are geared more for older kids than younger ones. A storm puts characters in peril, and there's a dark side story about Elliot's petting zoo home being sold to a new owner who plans to turn the animals into jerky.
A light romance is introduced, but beyond a lame pickup line, it barely registers. Despite its often negative tone, the movie actually has many positive messages, the strongest of which encourages perseverance. Show more My friend recommended this, but I turned it off with 20 min to go bc it was too negative. The characters talked to each other with constant put downs, name calling like loser and all around selfishness and negativity.
I know the psychedelic cookies and doping were over my 7 yr olds head, but still I had enough. She didn’t complain when I turned it off so elliot the littlest reindeer she wasn’t that into it. I feel there are plenty other movies with more positive and kind messages. Show more ELLIOT: THE LITTLEST REINDEER is about a miniature horse named Elliot (voiced by Josh Hutcherson) who lives in a petting zoo that's being sold off while the farm changes its focus to be a reindeer training camp for the North Pole.
Elliot is dedicated to achieving his dream of becoming one of Santa's reindeer, despite the fact that he's not big . and not a reindeer. While Elliot hides his true identity to enter the reindeer tryouts, his best friend -- a goat named Hazel ( Samantha Bee) -- realizes something is amiss, both at the North Pole and back home.
Show more Children aren't likely to mind or even realize that this holiday-themed story is derivative of several other kids' animated films, but it may bug older viewers. Whether writer-director Jennifer Westcott was inspired by others' ideas or just ripped them off is unclear, but it's hard to ignore the elements of Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer that feel borrowed from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Olive the Other Reindeer, Charlotte's Web, Ferdinand, Arthur Christmas, and even The Lemon Drop Kid.
That said, the film's (few) original ideas are great, including the fun idea of a reindeer-training academy and Canadian performer Kolton Stewart's toe-tapping, inspirational song "Off to the Races," which plays over the credits. Westcott picks up what Gene Autry's jovial delivery of the Rudolph song masks: Comet, Donder, Blitzen, et al. aren't necessarily good guys. Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer runs with that notion, painting the veteran reindeer as mean, self-centered, and "stupid." As Santa's stars retire to get married, raise families, and open their own businesses, Santa elliot the littlest reindeer them as disloyal.
Westcott is clever to realize and exploit this idea, but it's not exactly the kind of ho-ho-wholesome content that makes the holiday spirit soar. Hutcherson's sweet, earnest, innocent delivery as Elliot fits the film's positive messages, but the tone is overpowered by Bee's hallmark snark and Morena Baccarin's Deadpool cynicism. Thanks to that, plus its barrage of put-downs, Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer brings little joy to the season.
Show more • Families can talk about how Elliot handles the teasing and dismissiveness elliot the littlest reindeer his dream to be part of Santa's team in Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer.
Why do you think he perseveres? How does he keep a positive, upbeat attitude?
• The reindeer training camp slogan is "big dreamers dream big." What do you think that means? • D.J. feels pressure to live up to his father, Donder's, fame and reputation.
