When young Mariah (Breanna Yde) sees a darling little puppy named "Princess" at the pet store, she suddenly knows exactly what she wants for Christmas. Before her Christmas wish can come true, she must prove that she can dog-sit her uncle's dog, Jack, a scraggly rascal; in fact, the worst dog in the county! Jack turns Mariah and her family's perfect holiday preparations upside down in hilarious ways. It wasn't exactly the Christmas she wished for...it was more than she ever wanted. Based on the iconic Christmas song and popular illustrated book of the same name, Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas Is You featuring Mariah's music and narration will be a family favorite for years to come.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that All I Want for Christmas Is You is an animated movie based on Mariah Carey's same-named popular song and 2015 children's book. Carey narrates as a grown-up Mariah "recalling" a childhood story in which her younger self first learned about the joys and misadventures of owning a dog. Sparkling depictions of an extended family, including distinctive grandparents and younger siblings, as well as a pesky dog's antics (including bouts of vomiting and pooping) provide both laughs and moments of tenderness. Several of Carey's holiday songs are integrated into the story, too. Expect a few pratfalls -- tumbles in the snow and on a skating pond, characters upended by the naughty dog -- but nothing scary. The movie also has something to say about expectations, responsibilities, and the notion of perfection. It's safe and fun for all ages.
