Our Review:
We thought this was such a cute movie to watch and get the kids excited about Christmas. Prep & Landing is a story about 2 little elves saving Christmas. The movie itself is very short (only about 22 minutes long) but it's fill with enough fun and excitement to keep the DD entertained. She loves watching the elves in action. There were plenty of laugh aloud moments in this short movie. This is a movie that's loved by both adults and kids in our house and DD has watched this more times than I can count. Although it only last 22 minutes, it is worth buying and watching over and over again during the holiday season.
