Olive the Other Reindeer (1999)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Deus Ex Machina

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Not an all-time classic (yet), but Olive is just sweet enough and strange enough that it warrants annual viewings. That's partially thanks to Drew Barrymore's warm reading of the title character, a dog who thinks she might save Christmas when Santa calls upon help from "all of the other reindeer." Michael Stipe from R.E.M. co-stars and sings one song.
