My ratings for these films are really arbitrary (as if you couldn't figure that one out already). I enjoy Jingle All the Way too much to see its faults. And while I got a big kick out of both Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 and Santa Claus, they are fundamentally incompetent films. See my Christmas movie round-up for the New York Press.
