Storyline

We have documented an entire year in the lives of five real-bearded professional Santa Clauses to find out what the rest of the year is like for a man who perpetually looks like Jolly Saint Nick. In the process, they are shown for who they actually are, flawed, flesh and blood men who feel an overbearing responsibility to protect the integrity of the spotless, untarnished reputation of the 'Red Suit.' 'I Am Santa Claus' is a documentary that poses a question about a ubiquitous holiday figure that few parents ever ask themselves; 'Whose lap is my child sitting on?' Written by Anonymous

Warm, touching, emotional and funny. Excellent for the Holidays!
5 November 2014 | by Roadwarrior85846See all my reviews

I Am Santa Claus is a must-see documentary that follows the lives of four men that portray Ole Saint Nick during the Christmas season. It also follows WWE Legend, Mick Foley, giving himself the challenge to fill in the boots and see if he has the ability and skill to become Santa Claus himself.

Each individual has different lives. One being near homeless and jobless, living with his daughter, trying to struggle to get back on his feet again and being Santa Claus during the month of December can be a little stressful to him, yet gets a brief feeling of joy. Another man is openly gay and proud of it, visits his long distant significant other as much as he can before the busy Holiday. Third individual's dream job by opening up a BBQ business. Fourth man is a real estate agent that wants to get a break into singing Holiday tunes.

As for Mick Foley, he makes a PERFECT Santa Claus! Just like in his wrestling career, his mission is keeping others entertained and happy. It's a big transition from being a Hardcore Legend to Santa Claus, but he pulls it off very well. It's almost like it's his calling and it's in his blood.

The documentary is very straight-forward. Lots of laughs, chuckles, and also emotional scenes, especially with first two "Santas," that I just mentioned. From beginning to the end of this film, my smile never left my face. I strongly recommend to watch this film for the Christmas Season. You won't regret it!
