British movie - fantasy - christmas - there's a scene where a character inflates when kids say christmas words

There is one scene where someone named something like "Mr. Jolly" is with two kids (both British) who keep saying things like "sugar plums" and "candy canes" and every time they say a christmas word, this man keeps inflated and blowing up.

If the kids actually say "candy canes" then it's not likely to be British-made film, more likely from Hollywood.  The Brits do have candy canes but they don't commonly use that term, they call candy "sweets" and candy canes are not among their traditional old Christmas tree ornaments.  Hollywood movies set in England often mis-represent, leading Americans to believe that Brits put their mailboxes in front of their houses and have their bins (trashcans) tipped over by racoons!
