Santa Claus 3 was a better Escape Clause
26 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Richard (Andrew McCarthy), a shady insurance claims adjuster, finds his wife and her hired killer both dead and must figure out who did it as the police suspect himself in this boring, uninvolved, vapid little tale.

As predictable as it is asinine, badly acted by all involved and simply hard getting through all 99 minutes or so. But always one to look on the bright side (as small as that might be), The Santa Clause 3 is now not the worst film to be saddled with The Escape Claus moniker. So kudos for that rather dubious honor I guess.
