David Huddleston has lumps of cinematic coal for everybody in SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE.

Are you hungering for a wonderful, whimsical tale filled with magic and adventure? A story that captures the spirit of the most joyous time of the year, and brings to thrilling life the legend of the man who became the ultimate symbol of generosity and good will? Sorry, we’re all out of that, but we do have lots of SANTA CLAUS: THE MOVIE instead. Yeah, we know, that’s like trying to substitute a swift kick in the crotch for front row seats at a Stones concert, but that’s pretty much the way Temple of Bad participants Andrea Lipinski, Kevin Lauderdale, and Dan Persons felt having to sit through this leaden, overproduced attempt to create a new Christmas tradition. Come listen in as they discuss why the combined talents of John Lithgow, Dudley Moore, and Henry Mancini aren’t enough to keep this attempt at secular festivity from being the biggest seasonal bummer since that year you got smashed on eggnog and tried to call your high school crush.
