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

GOOF: Beginning of the movie it appears that a Coast Guard aircraft almost finds the north pole complex. Except that they report hearing something through SONAR. Although an auditory system, it is used under water, often with a pulse like radar, not air to ground. Also individual asks if it sounds like gas flowing. The Coast Guard has aircraft to collect SONAR from remote probes but it isn't charged with finding oil or gas reserves and would have no business fling over the North Pole. See more »
When Scott Calvin (Santa) lures the tooth fairy into Lucy's bedroom, and he is climbing in through the window, you can see the two rods going up his back which make his wings flap. See more »
OK so I admit I thought this was going to be a dud. The first one was sorta clever but a sequel... oh dear. I ended up going to watch it anyway, not entirely by choice.
Well, actually it was pretty good. There were several intertwining plot lines, lots of laughs that weren't all about Tim Allen being fat and falling down, and the kids in the theatre seemed to enjoy it too. So, for what it is (clean family entertainment), it's actually pretty good.
