THE NAUGHTY NINE

What You Need To Know:

THE NAUGHTY NINE is about a boy on Santa’s Naughty List. Andy recruits eight Naughty List cohorts to go to the North Pole to steal their wishlist items from Santa’s Toy Shop. Andy is on the Naughty List because he connives his parents, teachers and friends to get whatever he wants. He even persuades his Nice List sister to join the mission. After many misadventures, the ragtag team of naughty children reach the North Pole. They steal their wishlist toys. Andy’s sister steals an extra item. This proves too much naughty for Andy. He has an attack of conscience, but can he make things right?

THE NAUGHTY NINE had potential. However, the movie makers at Disney once again decide to sacrifice their audience to serve the woke god. The children try to do the right thing at the conclusion, which remits some of the offenses, but the characters are too naughty for viewers to care. THE NAUGHTY NINE has magical settings, great costumes and festive music. However, it contains too many edgy woke messages, along with lying, stealing and disrespect for everyone.

More Detail:

THE NAUGHTY NINE on Disney+ is about nine children on Santa’s Naughty List who decide to steal presents from the North Pole. Andy is a lying, manipulative, selfish kid who becomes indignant when he discovers he’s on Santa’s Naughty List. He does not get what he wants for Christmas.

In retaliation, he recruits eight other children on the Naughty List to help him steal the gifts they feel they are entitled to receive. At the last moment, he has an attack of conscience and tries to do the right thing. THE NAUGHTY NINE is inundated with woke agenda which serves to fragment and divide people, rather than bringing them together in typical traditional Christmas fashion.

Andy is a child who always has an agenda. He lies to his parents and teachers. Whenever he’s about to get caught, he slathers on his smarmy charm and avoids getting into trouble.

However, on Christmas Day, he realizes he hasn’t outsmarted Santa. His sister is on the Nice List and receives her wishlist item from Father Christmas. Andy is unable to fathom why he is on the Naughty List. He seeks revenge.

The Middle Schooler recruits eight other Naughty List youth to steal their wishlist items from the North Pole. When one Naughty List young person backs out, Andy manipulates his Nice sister to join the nefarious adventure.

Andy convinces a pilot at his dad’s workplace to fly the children to the North Pole. Problems arise, and they need to make an emergency landing. However, the children arrive at the North Pole safely. They dress like elves, thanks to the outstanding costumes made by one of their own, a 9-year-old boy who dresses feminine, wears makeup and calls another boy a “hottie.”

Once they arrive inside the North Pole, they are swept up into a Christmas party with real elves. Music and dancing ensues. The youth sneak out of the party. They work their way through a perilous series of puzzles to get to Santa’s Toy Shop, which resembles the Taj Mahal. Each child finds and steals his wishlist toy. Andy’s sister, after a “pep talk” from her naughty brother, even steals an extra toy. Landing his sister on the Naughty List is too much for Andy, however. He has a change of heart just as they are all about to escape Santa’s security team.

THE NAUGHTY NINE had potential. However, the movie makers at Disney once again decided to sacrifice their audience to serve a woke god. The youth try to do the right thing at the conclusion, which remits some of the offenses. However, the characters are too naughty for viewers to care by then. There are magical settings, great costumes and festive music, but the movie contains too many woke messages, along with lying, stealing and overall disrespect for everyone. MOVIEGUIDE® thinks most viewers will want to ignore THE NAUGHTY NINE.
