Maybe your Mother-In-Law will think twice before coming back to your house next Christmas after you show her this "movie"...
23 May 2003 | by (In a state of shock and confusion after viewing this "film&) – See all my reviews

Hollywood Hulk Hogan. A name synonymous with fake wrestling, baldness, and bad acting. Well, scratch the bad acting; Hulk's acting during a wrestling match is Anthony Hopkins-esque compared to the tripe in this "film", and notice I use the term VERY carefully.....

After a "plot" involving a rich guy hitting his head while putting on a Santa outfit while running from the police {Why didn't he just give up? The guy was supposed to have millions of dollars, you'd think he could spare a hundered for bail}, he wakes up imagining he is, indeed, Santa. As if he couldn't take one look in the mirror and realize Santa is neither balding nor a steroid junkie. Then, of course, there's the usual Stooge-style violence and a precocious Elven helper.

Unless you want to share the same fate as "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan's acting career, I suggest you skip this and watch Hulk's classic "Thunder in Paradise" instead.... wait, did I just say that? Better skip that one, too.
