Goofs

When the police call the news reporter to tell them about the people who have been missing their grandfather for ten years, in the reporters close up when he starts to wonder if he is with the real Santa Claus, a Canada Post truck can be seen in the background, which should not be there, since the movie's set in the United States. However, this does make sense at the same time, because the movie was filmed in Toronto, Canada. See more »

A wonderful Christmas movie!
17 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a heart-warming Christmas movie for the entire family. Leslie Nielsen is terrific as Santa Claus. He is both engaging and benevolent as the jolly St. Nicholas. Tommy Davidson steals the scenes as the task-master elf...some of the best scenes in the movie. The movie itself is colorful and fun to watch. A charming spin on Christmas with an amnesiac Santa. The story is simple and predictable, but still is a joy to watch from beginning to end. Take my advice and set your clock back to eight years old, and just settle in on a cold winter's day and watch this movie...it will bring the spirit of Christmas back to you. Thumbs up!
