5.0 out of 5 stars Good Yuletide fun!
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 accidentally kills Santa Claus. To his disbelief and dismay, and...

2.0 out of 5 stars how many people wrote the script?
about halfway through this film i started to wonder if the scriptwriter gave their pages over to a stand-in...what starts out as perfectly good story with plenty of adventure and comedy soon gives way to inconsistency and jumpy scenes...
ever notice how some sequels artifically play up to the original? this movie does it to itself...

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 accidentally 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 heart-warming, funny story that is ideal for all the family. Watch and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must be Santa..., Nov. 15 2013

(TOP 100 REVIEWER)   
As with all holidays there are always holiday classics; some of the Christmas classics you might remember stem from "Babes in Toyland" to "Miracle on 34th St." And who could forget "A Christmas Carol"?

Nowadays we have a new series of films vying for that position; some are animated and some are goofy. However "The Santa Clause" brings the Christmas wonder and an overt perennial message.

Scott Calvin is divorced. He will have custody of his son for the Christmas holiday. They are both a little awkward with each other as they now live in two different worlds. Something tells me soon this will change. As Scott puts his son to sleep reading Clement Clarke Moore, they hear such a clatter. This is where you can hear us gasping whatever you do don't go out and look. But he goes out anyway and there he surprises a jolly old man which causes the man to slide off the roof. Scott rushes over to help the man sees a card and reads it but forgets to read the "Santa" clause.

I will not go through the story as that is why you're buying this product. I can only say that you will not be disappointed. And in the end you may also get a Christmas present.

This is a christmas classic in our home and it's just not the holidays without watching it at least eight times each year. It's a cute movie, back when Tim Allen was actually funny and not run down. Always a favourite and hit with the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Santa changes everything, Jan. 14 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Santa Clause Special Edition (Bilingual) (DVD)
This story takes a rather self-centered, workaholic dad and changes him into a caring, kind person who can know who is naughty and nice and who can forgive even his ex-wife and her new husband. All the ideas around what the North Pole is like are brought to light. A good family movie.
