THE BATTLE TO SAVE CHRISTMAS IS ON.
Kate (Darby Camp) comes to the North Pole and meets Santa Claus (Kurt Russell) again, but they realize that she was being used by a resentful former elf (Julian Dennison) who has a naughty plan… The sequel is longer, more elaborate, has a name director and the first on-screen collaboration between Russell and Goldie Hawn since Overboard (1987), if you discount the latter’s brief cameo in the first Christmas Chronicles. They bring some charm to a movie that feels bloated, with annoying elves and less than thrilling action.
