I loved the original "Santa Clause". The movie was simple and well made and had tons of heart. This sequel was made 8 years later and what the first film did correctly this film does wrong,
In the original film Charlie (Santa/Scott's Son) was a sweet little boy who's on screen charm help make the original so good. In this film he is a juvenile delinquent.
When Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) first took up the Santa Claus suit, and became subject to The Santa Clause. Now Santa is at the top of his game at the North Pole and could not be happier, at least until Bernard (David Krumholtz) and Curtis (Spencer Breslin), the Keeper of the Handbook of Christmas break the news that there is another clause - the "Mrs. Clause".
As for the main plot Santa/Scott is now pressed to get married before the next Christmas Eve, or the clause will be broken and Christmas will die away. Scott must return to his home to search for a wife and set things right with Charlie. He even brings this up when visited by the Council of Legendary Figures consisting of Mother Nature (Aisha Tyler), Father Time (Peter Boyle), Cupid (Kevin Pollak), the Easter Bunny (Jay Thomas), the Tooth Fairy (Art LaFleur) and the Sandman (Michael Dorn).
None of the original charm is even captured in this production. The budget is much bigger for this film but it fails to do almost anything right.
If you love the first movie just watch that again and pass on this.
