Trivia

This film marks the second of three times where Leslie Nielsen played Santa Claus. The other two were in the film "All I Want for Christmas" (1991) and an episode of the animated TV series "Chilly Beach" (2003). See more »

Goofs

When the police call the news reporter to tell them about the people who have been missing their grandfather for ten years, in the reporters close up when he starts to wonder if he is with the real Santa Claus, a Canada Post truck can be seen in the background, which should not be there, since the movie's set in the United States. However, this does make sense at the same time, because the movie was filmed in Toronto, Canada. See more »

Hilarious
22 December 2001 | by sk8ing_lady2001See all my reviews

I love the TV-movie "Santa Who?" It is such a classic. One reason is Leslie Nielsen, who plays the one-and-only Santa Claus.

Peter Albright (Steven Eckholdt) is another highlight.

Everything is to love about this film. That is why I enjoy it.
