NUTS!

The Nuttiest Nutcracker is a direct to video computer-animated Christmas special based on The Nutcracker, and directed by Harold Harris.

Bad Qualities

  1. The idea of adding anthropomorphic fruits and vegetables in a Nutcracker story can get really confusing.
  2. Weak 3D CGI animation, even for direct to video standards that look like a PS1 game.
  3. The story is a great idea, but it is not well-executed.
  4. It wasn’t accurate to the story it was based on.
  5. Marie is a bland and weak protagonist.
  6. By looking at the video cover, you will think the foods are the main characters, but when you watch the movie, it will turn out that Marie is technically the protagonist.
  7. Annoying characters (most of the time).
  8. The Nutcracker Prince doesn’t do much but fight the Mouse Army.

Good Qualities

  1. Great voice acting.
  2. Reginald is a likable character and an entertaining antagonist.
  3. The songs are pretty good.
  4. The characters can actually be funny at times.
  5. The story was a wonderful idea, and would’ve been better-executed.
