Goofs

At the beginning of the film, the girl Kate is shown as a baby only a few weeks old on Christmas 2007. Later, on Christmas Eve 2018 when her brother Teddy takes her camera away from her in her bedroom, he says "you're ten years old, almost eleven." This doesn't make sense because at this point in time, she would've already turned eleven years old a few weeks ago. See more »

Quotes

Teddy: Can't you just wave your hand, and like, Jedi mindtrick the cops?
Santa Claus: I'm Santa Claus, Teddy, not Yoda.

Kurt is Santa
22 November 2018 | by belendakaySee all my reviews

My new favorite Christmas movie! I have lived to the perfect age, long enough to see Kurt Russell protray Santa and he is perhaps the best, most endearing, Santa I have seen in many a moon. Both my son and myself hope that Netflix will make this an annual event and perhaps a series of Santa movies with Mr. Russell!
