A cute movie. It's nothing incredible in the graphics department, but it's enjoyable none-the-less. The 'twist' on the perspective gives a little bit of comedy and light heartedness, while not totally shying away from some of the scary parts of the actual story. All in all, an easy annual watch of the greatest story ever told.
Highly recommended! James Stewart gives the performance of a lifetime.
