You know there are truly a finite number of potential Christmas movie plots when Hollywood wonders what's up with Santa Claus's also immortal younger brother who is a repo man in Chicago and wants to open an off-track betting shop. The results are about as good as could reasonably be expected from such a plot.
Those unfortunate enough to receive this on Blu-ray also got a bonus DVD of Ludacris's video of the cleverly titled "Ludachrismas." Reports indicate that the Ludacris video is the more thoughtful, entertaining artwork of the two. We'll let you be the judge.
