Storyline

Millions of people believe in him. Thousands claim to have seen him. But only one man is foolish enough to try to prove his existence. Self-proclaimed "Santologist" Dr. Lloyd Darrow will stop at nothing to take on government conspiracy, corporate suppression and fake mall Santas, all in pursuit of the world's oldest yuletide enigma. With emotional (and financial) support from his perplexed wife Barbara, dysfunctional devotion from his needy intern Clarence, and despite growing resentment from his 12-year old son Keith, Lloyd is determined to reveal the truth. It's an obsession that lands him finding out Santa-linked phenomena such as the hieroglyphics of Egypt, the Roswell crash and the Town Center Shopping Plaza in Polka City, OH (to name a few); and an obsession that just might cost him his family, his sanity and his self-respect.

A Fun Mockumentary
19 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Prior to watching this film, I had no idea what it would be about. I didn't know it was a mock documentary (or mock-umentary), nor did I recognize any of the actors outside of the narrator, William Shatner.

Needless to say, the film went far above and beyond my expectations. It isn't necessarily a children's film, for the mere fact that most of the humor is aimed at adults. The content itself, however, is very PG-ish. In all honesty, I'm a little surprised the movie didn't garner a G-rating.

Regardless, the story documents a pair of self-proclaimed "Santologists" who look to uncover whether or not the man in red truly does exist. It's broken up as you might expect a documentary to be, with breaks between scenes with single-character reflections or the critiquing by a "real" scientist.

The movie is also filled with hilarious bits of "evidence," including a pair of bells found in Roswell, New Mexico, a site known for being associated with alien encounters.

Altogether, this is a film that can be appreciated by anyone who is looking for a light-hearted comedy with tender moments and hilarity throughout.

10/10 for a fun-factor
