Shreck the Halls

Is anybody else watching this? I think it's probably one of the worst things I've ever seen and it's ruined Christmas.

Now that's what I call a review.

Stick that on the DVD case and I'd buy it for sure.

Well, it was better than the Star Wars Holiday Special, mostly because it was only a half hour long.

It was amusing. Like FantasticVSDoom said, nothing great but it wasn't that bad.

My family and I enjoyed it, so I would purchase it if released on DVD or HD DVD.

I wasn't expecting much, so I wasn't let down.

I found it very enjoyable - completely in keeping with the tone of the movies, and a pleasant enough start to the season.

The stuff with the gingerbread man was funny, everything else pretty much sucked.

About what I thought.

When I read comments from ABC about how they "have something special" and want to make it an annual event, I thought it might actually be good.

I thought Shrek 3 was crap... a huge step down from Shrek 2, so it doesn't surprise me this turned out poorly as well.

I didn't have high expectations for it. I thought it was alright.

I'm still so mad about Shrek 3 I refused to watch this. So was the Christmas special better or worse than that crappy movie that should've gone straight to video?

I think the OP watched a different program. Shrek the Halls was great!

I thought it was pretty good. Wasn't expecting a new Xmas classic. Kept me entertained for 22 minutes.

That's funny, ABC told me it was the new Xmas event for years to come... I skipped it.

The scene with the Gingerbread Man saying "I don't feel so good" was funny.

I laughed a couple of times, again mostly about Gingy. I loved when he was talking to the angel cookie, asking about falling from Heaven.

The majority of the show was "meh" and I was glad it was only half an hour.

It was OK. It felt very rushed, like it was cut down from an hour episode.

Loved Puss' telling of the story and then getting distracted by the dangly ball hanging from his hat.

my kids loved it, thats about all that matters. It was average at best for me. Gingy and Pinochio were hilarious.
