Divorcee Scott Calvin is disgusted to learn that his ex and her husband have tried - and failed - to break it easy to their 6-year-old son Charlie that Santa isn't real. On Christmas Eve, Scott reads The Night Before Christmas... then receives an unexpected visitor on his roof. When he's startled by Scott's calling out and falls, the Santa impersonator disappears, leaving only an 8-reindeer sleigh and a suit with instructions to put it on if he's involved in an accident. Scott does, and is transported around the town dropping gifts through chimneys until he's taken to the North Pole and informed by a group who claim they're elves that he is now Santa. Charlie is proud of his dad's new job, though Scott's convinced it's a dream. Until his hair turns white, his beard refuses to stay shaved, he gains weight inexplicably, even for his sudden love of junk food... Now he's accepted it, there's just one problem: how to keep it secret from his disbelieving family?Written by
When Scott and Charlie are leaving the North Pole in the sleigh and pass by the moon, the moon has a distinct Mickey Mouse logo on it. See more »
When Scott and Charlie are at Denny's, Scott tells Judy that they would like egg nog to drink, but yet, when he arrives at the first house and first putting on the Santa suit, he tells the little girl he is lactose intolerant. This reoccurs when he revisits the same house later in the movie, when the little girl provides him with soy milk. Scott/Santa finds it gross and she says that he said he was lactose intolerant.

Whoa! This could be a really long night.
Do it again Dad, please?
[picks up the bag]
I can't, the thing's empty.
[Comet the reindeer gets angry and growls]
There's nothing in the bag. Even if there was, did you notice there is no chimney? Where there's no chimney, there's no fireplace.
Are you growling at me?
[Comet nods his head]
Look, Comet, like I said there is nothing left...

In Current TV Versions, the scene where Scott takes Charlie to Denny's has been cut to show him extinguishing the flames of the turkey to getting their seat at Denny's. The Original Uncut Version feature Scott and Charlie trying to find an open restaurant on Christmas Eve. They pull up to Denny's and the next shot is of a Chinese/Japanese meeting before they get their seats and Scott sees all the other Dad's that burnt their Turkey Dinners and their hands. See more »
A Great Holiday Movie, One That I Can Watch Over & Over Throughout The Whole Year.
The Santa Clause (1994)
This movie is a holiday classic. Tim Allen is really funny, and the movie is non stop entertaining and fun. This is one movie that I can watch over and over without getting bored, at any time of the year. Simply a holiday classic. Great for the family. 10/10!
