Isn't perfect, but it's fun, and Tim Allen shines

Frankly, if I were Mrs. Claus, I might be looking for Santa Clause 3, outlining the grounds for annulment.

Has the disjointed feel of a bunch of strung-together TV episodes.

L.A. Weekly
While the film is not entirely successful, it still manages to string together enough charming moments to work.

Allen has fun with all his roles -- The rest of the acting is bland, but the movie's preteen target audience won't mind, and adults will find occasional grown-up jokes to chuckle at.
50
There's not a moment in it that feels fresh or authentic or inspired. But neither is it offensive.
40
Captures the true spirit of the holiday. It's mildly sentimental, unabashedly consumerist (with anything-but-subliminal advertisements for McDonald's hamburgers and Nestlé candy tucked inside), studiously inoffensive and completely disposable.
40
Sweet enough while it lasts.

Dallas Observer
Once more, Tim Allen drops a lump of coal down the chimney.

Charlotte Observer
The movie is as padded as Allen's jelly belly.
