A Fairly Odd Christmas 2012 5 out of 10
Sometimes you just have to wonder why? Why make Fairly Odd Parents made for TV movies with a college aged Timmy Turner when the animated show is so good on its own. Why not just make animated movies instead with Timmy at his correct age? Fairly Odd Parents was one of those few cartoons that could entertain the adults as well as the children. The great thing about animation is that you can do anything and the story of this little buck toothed kid and the fairies that grant him wishes. It works so perfectly in the animated setting. Bringing this concept into the real world on a TV movie budget limits what can be done with the story. It just seems like a waste to me. Fairly Odd Christmas was a decent holiday movie in which the college aged Timmy Turner (that still hangs out with his fairy godparents) ends up having to step in for Santa (who has a concussion). But first Timmy Turner needs to go on a trek to some influential elf to get himself off the naughty list. It was a watchable family film---but not as good as any random animated episode of the series. That being said, if the kids are fans of the TV show I'm sure they will like it.
