YouTube sensation translates into bad-taste holiday movie.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that Gummibar: The Yummy Gummy Search for Santa extends a popular YouTube animated video into a full-length feature with mediocre results. The movie includes reindeer who drink beer and tell fat jokes at the expense of Santa, as well as some minor cartoon action.

Awesome songs, not so much on the movie. I had high hopes, and I tried to like it, alas, I could not. Despair...
