Scott Calvin has been Santa Claus for the past eight years, and his loyal elves consider him the best Santa ever. But Santa's got problems (he's even mysteriously losing weight) and things quickly go south when he finds out that his son, Charlie, has landed on this year's "naughty" list. Desperate to help his son, Scott heads back home, leaving a substitute Claus to watch over things at the Pole. But when the substitute institutes some strange redefinitions of naughty and nice, putting Christmas at risk, it's up to Scott to return with a new bag of magic to try to save Christmas. Written by

Toy Santa's line, "You are a sad, strange little man," is also used by Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story (1995) Also when the Toy Santa says "I think Santa feels a little Buzz!" is from him being "Buzz Lightyear" in Toy Story. See more »
Scott's family is supposed to live in Michigan, yet the sign on the front of Charlie's school reads "Secondary School". They're called high schools in the U.S. and secondary schools in countries such as Canada, where the movie was filmed. See more »
I thought it was very funny, and the Elves were REALLY CUTE!
It was an entertaining and enjoyable movie. I laughed a lot. The elves were really cute and adorable, I wanted to adopt all of them and take them home with me. I saw it at the dollar-movie theater & it was definitely worth more than $1. If you want a funny, enjoyable, cute, movie the entire family can go see, even your young kids, then I highly recommend this film.
