Divorcee Scott Calvin is disgusted to learn that his ex and her husband have tried - and failed - to break it easy to their 6-year-old son Charlie that Santa isn't real. On Christmas Eve, Scott reads The Night Before Christmas... then receives an unexpected visitor on his roof. When he's startled by Scott's calling out and falls, the Santa impersonator disappears, leaving only an 8-reindeer sleigh and a suit with instructions to put it on if he's involved in an accident. Scott does, and is transported around the town dropping gifts through chimneys until he's taken to the North Pole and informed by a group who claim they're elves that he is now Santa. Charlie is proud of his dad's new job, though Scott's convinced it's a dream. Until his hair turns white, his beard refuses to stay shaved, he gains weight inexplicably, even for his sudden love of junk food... Now he's accepted it, there's just one problem: how to keep it secret from his disbelieving family? Written by
During Scott Calvin's first year as Santa, he visits Sarah, the little girl. She is clearly missing her two front teeth. She wants him to drink the milk but he says he is lactose intolerant. The next year she leaves him soy milk, and when she speaks she is still missing her two front teeth. See more »
[to his father, Scott]
I'm fine, Dad. Think about those kids! You're Santa! We were up in the North Pole!
Charile... I don't know.
What do you mean you don't know?
Dr. Neil Miller:
YOU listen! You think you know what he is... You *DON'T*!
Charlie... You're confused.
I know exactly who he is.
Dr. Neil Miller:
Charile... HE is NOT Santa!
HE IS TOO SANTA! We went up to the North Pole. I saw it! We met the Head Elf, Bernard. He knew everything!
