Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.
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

In the opening credits, several Jack-in-the-Boxes pop open. The last one to open is the same type of Jack-in-the-Box that is seen numerous times in Elf (2003). 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 »
Santa Clause 2 is a worthy sequel to the original one. Tim Allen has found his nitch with Santa Clause and the wonderful addition of Elizabeth Mitchell makes this movie an entertaining, heart warming Christmas movie. Why Hollywood is not using Ms. Mitchell more is a mystery. Tim Allen and Elizabeth Mitchell have a natural chemistry and it isn't a forced romance on screen. Tim Allen is naturally funny but he seems more comfortable in the Santa Suit this time. There were moments where my children did become restless but all in all I would have to give this movie two thumbs up and I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.
