Klaus: A New (to us) Christmas Movie

Dear Liza,

Every Christmas, we watch our favorite holiday movies. From “Miracle on 34th Street” to “The Muppet Christmas Carol” and “Charlie Brown’s Christmas”, we watch and enjoy over a dozen films.

We are fussy about our movies, of course. We don’t count “Die Hard” or “Bad Santa.” We like sweet, old fashioned stories where no one gets shot.

And this year, we found a new one! In looking over lists of movies online, I found 2019’s “Klaus” listed. From the minimal description and reviews, it seemed like a good bet. And it was!

“Klaus” is a delightful animated story about an exiled prince given a seemingly impossible task in order to regain his father’s favor. It is told with humor, slapstick comedy and suspense, with just a whisper of romance. Produced for Netflix, Klaus features voices by Jason Schwartzman, Joan Cusack, Rashida Jones and J.K. Simmons. It made me laugh out loud and was judged “Popcorn Worthy” by Grandpa Nelson.

So, go see Klaus. You won’t be sorry, I promise.
