Product Description

Tim Allen stars as Scott Calvin, a cynical toy company executive who is forced to take over the job of Santa Claus when he and his son Charlie witness the previous incumbent falling off a roof. Soon Scott finds himself putting on weight, growing a white beard and fulfiling his obligation to deliver presents to all the children around the world. He even finds himself reluctantly getting into the spirit of things!

From Amazon.co.uk

Tim Allen makes an impressive screen debut in Disney's well-written seasonal film The Santa Clause. Divorced toy company executive Scott Calvin is pleased to have his son Charlie for Christmas, though the boy himself isn't happy about it. But when Santa Claus accidentally topples off the roof of the house and falls with a thud in the snow, Scott finds himself taking the merry old elf's place and earning new respect in his son's eyes. When the night ends, the reindeer take them to the North Pole, and Scott discovers that by donning the fabled red suit, he's inadvertently agreed to become the next Santa Claus. The next morning he wakes up in his own bed and thinks it's all a dream--but Charlie remembers it with crystal clarity. Scott now has to deal with his suspicious ex-wife (Wendy Crewson) and her psychiatrist boyfriend (Judge Reinhold), who both think he's playing tricks with Charlie's mind, and also with his own out-of-control body, which is putting on weight and growing a prodigious beard. The Santa Clause probably won't supplant It's a Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th Street as anyone's favourite Christmas viewing, but it's an enjoyable, straightforward family film, anchored by the affable charisma of Allen. --Bret Fetzer

Great film for all the family, really gets you in the Christmas spirit and lets you fly away into a fantasy world, which even as a 30 something year old you would like to be true.
The acting is great and all the main characters from the first film are all included letting you see how time has treat them.
I can recomment this to all children of all ages.

There are some films that just have to be watched every christmas and this is one of them. It is a feelgood film for a feelgood time of year.
The story is simple. Scott Calvin (note his initials) is a divorced father who frequently lets his young son down due to his busy working life. That is until he accidently kills Santa Claus. To his disbelief and dismay, and his sons delight, he has to become the new Santa. The film follows his changing life and attitudes and shows the newly developing relationship between father and son.
There is nothing taxing or complex about this movie, just a heartwarming, funny story that is ideal for all the family. Watch and enjoy.

Let me start this review with, what some might find, a controversial statement, I like Tim Allen. I especially like Tim Allen and Disney, it's comfortable, it fits, it just works. I know haters of Allen would say that he is not a very good actor at all, that he hasn't really got any range, and I would completely agree with that, but I don't think that is a bad thing at all. Let's think of some actors that don't really have the range that some other thespians may have; Hugh Grant, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Woody Allen and to a certain degree, Tom Hanks. If you really think about it, all of these guys play the same character in every film, but all of these guys are pretty successful. Why do you think that is? Because Hugh Grant is brilliant as the hopeless romantic, Arnie is the undisputed king of action; Woody Allen is lord of narcissism and introspection and Tom Hanks is really good as that nice man from Splash. The same thing applies to Tim Allen, Tim Allen IS generic stereotypical American male. And that is why I like him, he has become such a master of his craft in portraying generic American male that he doesn't need to stretch he fills the role more comfortably than a cat on a cushion.

That is why this film is enjoyable, it has all the right ingredients, with a topping of Disney magic that just seems to make Christmas a bit more real for everybody. Sure it has an extremely predictable story arc that almost seems to wash over you, but this is what Tim Allen does, and by god does he do it well.

I do like the concept of this film, it sort of builds on the story of Santa in a way that actually makes the whole fantasy more believable, and we all love a bit of word play don't we? "Claus" and "Clause".

How can you not enjoy this movie? Santa falls off Scott Calvin's (Tim Allen) roof, so he has to take over the position (albeit reluctantly) when he puts on the suit (having not read the fine print). Along the way you run into Scott's ex-wife (Wendy Crewson), his son Charlie (Eric Lloyd), Charlie's stepfather Neil the psychiatrist (Judge Reinhold) (he stopped believing in Santa Claus at age three when he didn't get his Oscar Mayer Weenie Whistle--yeah, that explains a lot!), and many fun elves, including Bernard (David Krumholtz--currently starring in CBS's Numb3rs). It is a great cast, especially the child-like elves, many of whom are actually at least 1,200 years of age.
The plot is engaging, and very family friendly. Don't analyze it too much, as you may wonder at some points why things don't get explained further--but hey, it isn't supposed to be an air tight court case here, just a fun movie!
The extras are fun, though not long, they definately make a great addition. You get to see the documentary "So You Wanna Be An Elf?" in which Bernard the head Elf, trains a new crop of workers, including telling them about the filming of the movie where "Santa had to lose a few pounds to play his alter-ego Scott Calvin." This mood carries over into the Wolfgang Puck mini-cooking shows (three of them) in which we see Wolfgang and a group of helpful Elves make Pizza (Santa's favourite after too much milk and cookies), Christmas cookies, and hot cocoa. Recipes are also included as typically the shows don't list ingredient measurings.
This is a fun movie to watch, especially around the hollidays, though the kids will enjoy it any time.

This has to be one of the best christmas films ever. This film lets its watchers in to the secrets of Christmas an Santa Claus. The perfect christmas treat for children and believers of all ages, a total must see for christmas eve or anytime of the year. Tim Allen provides you with a million laughs with the help of the cast with witty punch lines and quick jokes. In a word BRILIANT!

This is the best feelgood movie for Christmas.In the first movie you find out how Tim Allen becomes santa and in number 2 the very funny second clause is revealed,you can say the second movies in a set of stories is never any good but this is even better than the 1st.Watch it with your kids or even better without them its great for adults too.A very recommended Movie
