There are very few things that make me grit my teeth. One of them is the movie "Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer." Maybe it is because I don't care for stop action animation. Or, I don't care for the songs. Or, maybe, just maybe, it is a very annoying movie in general. Whatever it is, when we are going through our 30 days of Christmas movie marathon, I dread when this one comes up.
The music gives me a twitch, frankly. It is superficial and makes my head ache. It seems to me that the lyricist had to strain to find a reason to even write some of the songs, such as "Silver and Gold." Bleh.
The storyline is weak. Come on, why do we have to go to the Island of Misfit Toys? Seriously?? Santa's elves are such poor makers that their work is less than perfect? I doubt it.
And then there is the whole "I Wanna Be a Dentist" storyline. I'm sorry. When I hear that line all that I can think of is "Little Shop of Horrors" and this song:
In fact, let's just watch this and forget that "Rudolf" exists.... Excuse me while I go to my happy place...Enjoy!
Is there a "Christmas" movie that gives you a shiver? Come on, 'fess up!
