The Naughty List is a 2013 computer-animated Christmas movie that is packed with humor, heart, and a mix of popular voice actors. Directed by Gordon Crum, it features the voices of Drake Bell, Sean Astin, Naya Rivera, and Kyle Chandler. The story revolves around two elves, named Santa's Best-Elf Bernice (Rivera) and her best friend, Elf-In-Training, Timmy (Bell). They work in Santa's workshop helping to make toys for children, checking their names off the Nice List, as well as the Naughty, to help Santa decide who should receive a present and who should be...un-noticed.

However, their routine life gets flipped upside down when they find that their arch-nemesis from childhood, Norbert (Astin), has been rehired as Santa's Head Elf. He's on a mission to make Christmas as naughty as possible, so he starts drastically reducing the names on the Nice List, hoping to destroy Christmas entirely, alongside sabotage and destruction in the workshop.

Bernice and Timmy, desperate to put a halt to Norbert's naughtiness, come up with a plan to break into Santa's office and find the backup Nice List. They find out that the computer system that tracks the children's behavior throughout the year, and categorizes them as 'Nice' or 'Naughty' has gone down.

With Christmas drawing closer and closer, Bernice and Timmy only have a few days left to fix the problem, save Christmas, and make sure that Norbert doesn't get away with his plans. Along the way, they pick up help from a group of misfit elves who never quite fit in, including a computer-savvy elf named Grace (played by Chandler). They also encounter a forgetful reindeer who almost ends up submarine-ing the sleigh.

The Naughty List touches on the familiar Christmas themes of generosity, selflessness, and kindness. However, it does not forget to infuse these messages through multiple comedic moments, witty banter, and light-hearted scenes.

The characters are charming and endearing, lending the film its heart. It's a film that audiences of all ages can enjoy, with its vibrant colors, excellent animation, and engaging soundtrack.

Overall, The Naughty List is a well-made Christmas movie that shouldn't be missed. It's an exciting and fun ride that will appeal not just to children, but also adults. The film provides plenty of laughs, warm hugs, and positive messages that will entertain and inspire its audience.

The Naughty List is a 2013 kids & family movie with a runtime of 45 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4.
