Reviews

The legend of Santa Claus comes to life in this enchanting, heart-warming tale that the whole family will enjoy all year round.

This is the delightful story of a master toymaker (David Huddlestone) who discovers a magical kingdom of elves at the north pole. There he is entrusted with wondrous, special powers to become Santa Claus! And there he meets Patch (Dudley Moore), an eager-to-please elf who becomes mixed up with a dastardly toy tycoon's (John Lithgow) plans to take over Christmas.

'Santa Claus the Movie' is, without any doubt, the most beautiful movie you could ever own in history! It has the most beautiful soundtrack, a heart-warming story-plot and more importantly, a blend of very talented actors.
The story is about a man named Claus. Every Christmas Eve, he travels around his homeland on his sled of Reindeer with his wife, Anya, delivering presents to all of his friends and children. However, one Christmas Eve, his wife, reindeer and he are caught in a terrible snowstorm. Later, they're rescued by a group of friendly elves (one of them named Patch is played by Dudley Moore. May God rest his poor soul) and they take them to their new home in the North Pole. There, Claus begins his new life as 'Santa Claus' and ever since that day, is able to fly on his sled and reindeer delivering presents to good children all over the world.

Eventually, during the story, the elf, Patch, believing that Santa no longer likes him, decides to leave and make it big in New York to make Santa like him again. It's up to Santa and his two new friends, a young boy named Joe, and a young girl named Cornelia, to bring him back before it's too late.
'Santa Claus the Movie' is definitely a movie that everyone should have in their Video/DVD collection. I've loved this movie ever since I was a baby. I've grown up watching it every single Christmas and have made it a personal tradition of mine to watch it every single year.
This is not the kind of movie that you will eventually get bored of watching. The story, soundtrack and characters are all so loveable that no matter how many times you've watched this movie over the years, you will always be really excited to watch it again the following Christmas.

This is in my top 5 of Christmas films and I make sure to watch it every year while I do the Christmas baking as I'm convinced that with all that Christmas spirit oozing out of it some of it's got to be transferred to my mince pies! A definate one to watch for that warm fuzzy feeling even if it is dripping with sweetness and light. And fantastic to see a naive Dudley and suprisingly a mean John Lithgow from before the days of "3rd Rock From The Sun" too!

This is one of the best christmas films, that I have seen for a very long time. The sheer brillance of the film is out standing, this film is to me what christmas should be like. It brings back the magic that was taken away so long ago. Fun for the whole family. Dudley Moore's acting is brillant, I recomend it to anyone who has lost the Christmas spirit.

Growing up in the late 80's/ early 90's, this was the film I always waited for to come around at Christmas. This is one of those films like "It's a wonderful life" that should be around every Christmas. Make no mistake - this film as the title suggests is entirely aimed at children, but is entertaining enough for adults to watch with them. I retain a corre which still loves classic disneys so I still love this film. It seems to wrap up much of the magic of Christmas in a mere 90 mins or so. Most of the acting is perfect for the film (for serious films it would be a little melodramatic), the guy from "third rock to the sun" being a great villian with evil laughs and a view to spoil Christmas. The two Clauses are also well acted, and Dudley Moore is good as Patch, an elf upon whom much of the story revolves around. All in all, if you don't buy this video, make sure you sit down and watch it while its on tv.

Not a year has passed since I was born where I haven't watched this movie on the TV in the run up to Christmas. Every year I have to watch this movie otherwise it's just not Christmas. I've searched to find it on video and DVD to no joy, but now it is finally being released.
This movie is perhaps the best Christmas/Santa movie ever. It is a lot better then the recent Hollywood attempts featuring the likes of Tim Allen and Arnold Schwarzenegger. This film definitly has the warm family feel to it.
If you've never seen the film before and I can't believe anyone hasn't. The film starts off with a toy maker and his wife delivering presents to children in their village. On their return home they get caught in a vicious snow storm and become trapped, and certainly will perish in the woods. They are rescued by elves and magically taken to the North Pole where their lives are saved. From that day on the toy maker becomes Santa Claus and his wife obviously Mrs Santa Claus. Every year after that on Christmas Eve Santa leaves the North Pole to deliver presents to all the good boys and girls.
Centuries pass and eventually we arrive in the Early 80's. One Christmas Eve as Santa is delivering presents he meets a young homeless boy named Joe. Santa immediately becomes best friends with the kid and lets him join him as he delivers presents and even lets Joe fly the Reindeer. On delivering toys to one house Santa and Joe meet a young girl named Cornelia, she becomes best friends with Joe and gives him food and a warm, dry place to sleep.
Back at the North Pole an Elf named Patch (played superbly by the late Dudley Moore) has big plans on how to revolutionise Christmas and make toy making easiser. He builds an assembly line that can churn out toys in minutes.
