    Synopsis


    Olive, the Other Reindeer
    Matt Groening helped produce this animated adaptation of the popular children's book written by J. Otto Seibold and Vivian Walsh. Olive (voice of Drew Barrymore) is a little dog who is very excited about the upcoming Christmas holidays, and wishes she could somehow help Santa Claus (voice of Edward Asner) with his work. Word begins to circulate that one of Santa's reindeer has hurt his leg and won't be able to make the trip, and when someone mentions "all of the other reindeer," Olive mistaken thinks they've said "Olive, the other reindeer," and is convinced Santa wants her to come to the North Pole to help pull the sleigh. Dan Castellaneta, Peter MacNichol, Diedrich Bader, and Tim Meadows also contribute to the voice cast; Michael Stipe from the band R.E.M. voices one of the characters and contributes a song to the soundtrack. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      This movie is cute and fun and provides laughs and entertainment that adults and kids of all ages will enjoy. If you liked Elf, The Simpsons, and/ or original seasons of Family guy, then this is the Holiday movie for you. It is about a dog named Olive and her adorable antics becoming Santa's other reindeer. It is a heart warming and hilarious holiday tale that I highly reccommend.

      This is an Xmas Classic in my opinion...I like the characters in the story and especially the songs. The voices are recognizable people such as Joe Patoliano, Dan Castellaneta, Drew Barrymore, Michael Stipe (REM), Jay Mohr + really good REM songs.

      I purchased this movie because I remember watching it as a kid. I absolutely loved it. I wanted to buy it to watch with my god kids and enjoy the holidays as a family. It is such a cute and wholesome movie. It definitely shows us that anything is possible!

      This movie came out when I was in high school and I liked it back then. My daughter has the book so I thought I'd pick this up to watch as our Christmas Eve feature. I hope she enjoys it!

      Our family loves the holidays and one tradition is watching all kinds of christmas movies. We love Olive and her story but haven't seen it on tv for a few years. So saw it online at best buy and added to our collection!

      This movie was a hit with my granddaughters ages 2 and 5. The only thing I think since Olive is a girl they should have put a bow or something on her. She looks like a boy. But the story is really good.

      I felt like this movie has weird, inappropriate jokes, language for my six year old. I kind of laughed in a few places but didn't want her to watch it anymore. She loved it but I HATED it for her.

      I was looking for a new Christmas movie to watch with my son. We had a great time watching and singing along. The animation/artwork is very cool.
