What a disappointment
(2 out of 5 stars)
"I wish I had read everyone elses' reviews before buying this. I saw the dvd out and was so excited about getting it for Christmas. As soon as it started I knew it was going to be "flashbacks" of episodes that were already on TV. And none of them had anything to do with Christmas. The only bonus on the DVD was the reports done by Gus, Spenelli and Mickey (I love Mickey). They were very funny but not worth the money."
Shame on you Disney

"Disney, shame on you . There is absolutely nothing new about this rip-off. It is comprised of old TV reruns in a new Christmas box. The stories are regular episodes with absolutely NO Christmas content. This is plain and simple deception by a company who is mach better than this."
Don't be fooled

"The Recess christmas "movie" is an enjoyable holiday treat, although...don't be fooled as I was when I got the video expecting to see an all-new christmas adventure with these great kids...most of the stories in this "movie" are old television episodes of the "recess" series already being shown on televison, bookended with the two teachers and the principal stuck in the snow at christmas time and told through flashbacks. Again, an enjoyable video but not entirely a "christmas" movie and hardly any of it is new."
Excellent Christmas story with James Earl Jones as Santa

"This is a fun Christmas tape for fans of Recess. I think the last story featuring James Earl Jones as Santa was quite touching and funny. At least one other reviewer, who said there was "no Christmas content" on the tape, must not have actually watched it. I guess technically some of the material comes from the episodes they have produced but unless your child has taped every episode this is unlikely to be redundant in your collection."
