Nice heartfelt family film.
14 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

It's a story about a father named Gordon Covington, who is having financial problems. Christmas is approaching and Gordon is really down because he can't provide for his family. There is the side story that the owner of the used car lot where Gordon works wants him to sell some questionable cars. Not to give away the story, but basically Gordon begins turning into Santa (i.e. "The Santa Clause"), he learns a lesson and his family is reunited. Heartfelt story.
