This soundtrack to one of Robin Williams ’s last films opens with Rufus Wainwright singing “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” backed by a 55-piece orchestra. The album then features mostly to hip holiday originals like Anna Su ’s mischievous “Santa Will Be Flying Over the Moon,” Spencer Shapeero ’s meditative “The Weather Outside” and FM Radio’s galloping “More Than I Wished For.” Mr. Wainwright returns at the end with his own “Christmas Is for Kids.” A cozy collection of cutting-edge noëls.
