Who doesn’t love to watch at least one Christmas movie during the holiday season?
There are classics like ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ with Jimmy Stewart, along with The Grinch, Charlie Brown’s Christmas and Elf. However, I’ve always felt there was something missing. Until this year!!!!
Can you imagine a Santa Claus or Father Christmas who’s actually sexy and stylish. Well, Netflix as created ‘The Christmas Chronicles” starring Kurt Russell as a very updated and beautifully suited, Santa. We loved it! We think it’ll become a classic in a completely different way.
I don’t want to give away the story – so here’s a direct clip from the Netflix website to give a brief story outline. “After accidentally crashing Santa’s sleigh, a brother and sister pull an all-nighter to save Christmas with a savvy, straight-talking St. Nick.”
I guarantee you’ve never seen a Santa like Kurt Russell’s Santa. It’s totally refreshing, funny and touching too. Chris Columbus, one of the producers is known for his work on two Harry Potter movies, Home Alone, Home Alone 2 and Mrs Doubtfire, to mention a few.
The story is family oriented. It unfolds in a fast paced, adventure and fantasy style. I would say that this movie is great for everyone from children aged 10 to adults. It has a PG rating. If want to check out the rating first – here’s a link for a blog that gives more details.

Don’t you agree that Kurt’s Santa has a definite ‘hot & sexy’ look about him???
If you don’t have Netflix – I recommend you find a friend or family member who does. Offer to bring the popcorn and have a hearty holiday chuckle watching this quirky, fun movie.
