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
This movie is phenomenal! Every line can be quoted. The jokes go by so quickly with so little hype around them that, if you're not expecting them, you will miss them. If you are paying attention, every line will make you laugh. If you just give yourself a minute to get past a somewhat boring plot (like many documentaries), the humor and writing will indeed keep you entertained for the whole 82 minutes. Also, make sure to watch with friends, because you will want to quote the movie, and the lines without the context of the movie will not be funny, so you do need some others to throw quotes around with. This movie is a Christmas treasure. The characters are likable, not to mention hilarious; the narrating is top notch; the idea is clever; the writing is incredibly witty; and the entire movie is plain ridiculous. It will always be a Christmas favorite.
