Storyline

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 Walt Disney Pictures

Trivia

In the scene where Scott is trying to overtake the sleigh being flown by the plastic Santa, the plastic Santa says "You are a sad, strange man." This very line was used by Tim Allen in his voice role as Buzz Lightyear in Pixar's Toy Story. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the movie when Santa is stopped above the house, Comet is not seen on the back of the sled. After Lucy waves to Santa, she says goodbye to comet and he has appeared on the back of the sled. Actually Comet's antlers are visible in the back of the sleigh, they're just hard to see against the night's sky. See more »

Very pleased
26 October 2004 | by (Owensboro, Kentucky) – See all my reviews

This is a great family film/clean fun. Good to see with others. Fun to watch with children or as an adult. The focus of the film(plot) is clear. The characters/actors were well chosen. It wasn't too long, and it kept ones suspense. This is the type of film, I feel, that helps people better appreciate the holiday season. The film had no explicit scenes, so it could be watched with children.

The focus of the film was to make one laugh and to apply the romantic need for togetherness. Excellently done...
