Interwoven stories that take place on Christmas Eve, as told by one festive radio host: A family brings home more than a Christmas tree, a student documentary becomes a living nightmare, a Christmas spirit terrorizes, Santa slays evil.
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.Written by
A really funny movie that people with and without kids can enjoy
I just saw this film at a screening and it is awesome. I laughed out loud and found myself quoting the movie with friends for days after. Lines like I am not a genius and naming Alex Trabec as one of the great geniuses was very cool. I am excited to buy it because this is one of those movies like Christmas Vacation that you find yourself watching even when its not Christmas. I think it is cool that Shatner is on it because isn't he Jewish? He did a really great job and he really ads to the pacing of the film to help it never seem to slow. Make sure you really pay attention to the artifacts those were a crack up. The cool thing about this movie is I think everyone will like it whether they have kids or not. I like the feel of the film as well because it kind of has that office sort of feel but they make some of the funnies moments when they are interviewing the characters. The wife is awesome make sure you pay attention to what his wife does when he is explaining about gravity I laughed out loud. Anyway it is a great film I give it 4 stars.
