Direct-to-video favorite AnnaLynne McCord co-stars as a hyper-competitive elf who finds herself going head-to-head in an unlikely battle for the coveted position of "Ho, Ho, Ho," otherwise known as Santa's (Eric Keenleyside) right-hand elf. Her chief competition turns out to be money-minded businessman Dax (Mizanin). Dax is one of those holiday-unfriendly types who acts like a big shot and treats everyone like garbage. Will his cold heart thaw out a little bit as he trains to be the "Ho, Ho, Ho?"
Santa's Little Helper is PG-rated, harmless holiday hokum for kids and fans of The Miz and Paige. Otherwise, there are admittedly quite a few better options out there for holiday viewing. There are three behind-the-scenes featurettes that, again, will be of most interest to Miz maniacs and WWE fans in general ("Introducing Paige" is one of the featurettes, focused on Bevis' and her performance as Eleanor).
