The second vehicle -- though filmed eight years apart from the first -- seems like a cash-in, and nothing more. Santa (Tim Allen), a.k.a. Scott Calvin (look at the initials), is as happy as can be. He's been Santa Claus for the past eight years, and the children have been happier since he became Santa. (Who takes these polls?) But as Christmas draws closer, Scott realizes that not only is his son, Charlie, on the Naughty List, there's a second clause in the contract that states he must become married to "The Mrs. Claus" in 27 days, or he'll be history.
The head elf, Bernard, along with the help of another fellow elf (Specer Breslin, "The Cat in the Hat"), duplicates a fake Santa to watch over things as the real Scott goes home to tend to family matters. But the new Santa Claus is an evil dictator who comes to work in Hitler's outfit and demands that all children be given coal. It's the funniest part of the movie, apart from when Evil Santa says to Good Santa, "You are a sad, strange little man," which is of course a little Disney in-joke. (Tim is mimicking his own Buzz Lightyear character from Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story.")
"The Santa Clause 2" got a lot of good reviews that called it an enjoyable and charming little movie, but I missed something. The first film was something both kids and adults alike could equally enjoy. Allen was funnier, the film was funnier, and it was much more charming than this.Read more ›
funny.in fact,i found it mean spirited and depressing.it also has none
of the magic of the first one.if you don't like feeling like you are
being preached to,you probably won't like this movie.i also felt a bit
creeped out by certain parts of it.it's much too dark to be enjoyable
in the same way as the first one.i also felt it strayed into sappiness
territory.actually forget strayed into.it went straight into sappiness
territory.this movie also has a lot of predictability to it.it's
formulaic at times.but the biggest downfall for this movie,in my
opinion,is it's sombre atmosphere.i don't think it's a horrible
movie,but it sure is a few steps down in quality from the original.not
quite painful to watch,but not enjoyable,either.and although i may be
out to lunch here,i think parents should use discretion about letting
their children watch this,because it is so dark.but that's just my
opinion.my vote for the Santa Clause 2 is a 2.5/5
So of course many ayear later when I heard about a 2nd one you can bet your bottom dollar I was that teenager in the front row giggling at Clone-clause, as soon as the movie started
I found myself amused (well...most of the time.) by the movie.
It had funny and touching moments, it had a few good new characters. I.e. the tooth fairy, Father time, mother nature and clone-clause. And a few not so good ones. I.e. Cupit, Cutis, the easter bunny, Comet...
But what I found myself most disapointed in was the old characters themselfs!! They seem've changed so much within what ohh, 6-8 years? Charlie was a reble? Laura and Neil were bland worring parents and the elves?!
Oh god don't get me started on the elves! I missed Judy! and the old costumes and set and I hated Curtis' mood swings!
As for Bernard? where did my gruff, protective big brother elf go? Now he's winny, pensive and unsure of hiself? Come on!
Now...I understand that David K. (Bernard) Was only 16 when he played the role in the first movie and that he was 24 in the 2nd but come on!! Why did the director have them change so much? Oooohh yeah a little birdy told me about him (Check out interviews with him on google for yourselfs) and that birdy told me he had a meeting with Tim Allen and had him change the other actors view points on their characters, you know, make them a little disney-er?Read more ›
8 years ago Scott Calvin became Santa Clause due to a clause in the contract that he discovered on the previous Santa who fell from his roof. Since then he has enjoyed bringing joy to the world, but life is tough when he has a son and broken marriage back in the States. Now a new clause has been found in the small print of the contract card: he has to find a Mrs Clause to marry by Christmas Eve or else he will no longer be Santa. With this weight on his shoulders he returns home to sort out the problems with his troubled son leaving a toy Santa in his place who is a stickler for the rules and decides that maybe not that many children in the world have been good after all! Chaos ensues, will Santa find his wife, will he sort out the mess at the North Pole, and will he sort out his son, all before Christmas Eve is over!!!
The Santa Clause was in my mind the definitive Santa movie, it appealed to both adults and kids alike and didn't have Dudley Moore in it nor was it so overfilled with sugary sweetness that I wanted to puke. Well may he rest in peace but thankfully Moore isn't in this film, so the alcohol content may be low but the sugar content is definitely high. So high in fact that a warning should be placed on the poster "This film is rated U and may contain some scenes that could cause tooth decay in viewers of a sensitive nature."
As a rule of thumb, Hollywood film-makers see a sequel and either add kids or animals to the mix, don't believe me check out Robocop 3 or Mad Max 3 to name two. The Santa Clause 2 has elves, who are either sleeping in the summer or are very busy at Christmas so are conveniently played here by children for the sake of the film.Read more ›
