* UnfortunateImplications: The movie provides the message that there are no bad kids because some of them might feel scared or misunderstood. While it's nice to look into the reasons and why to improve such behavior, the movie, however, instead delivers it in a way by showing that every kid deserves a present no matter how bad they behave, and thus implying that it's okay for kids to get away with bad behavior. Clyde is an adult and does try to fix what he screwed up, and Fred was at least able to have a talk with Sam before things got too bad, but whose to say that misbehaved kids(like the one boy who trashed his sister's room and beat her up with a bat) will interpret the fact that they still received gifts as a means to take advantage of it and continue misbehaving?
