"Can we take a direct flight back to reality, or do we have to change planes in Denver?'"

After Christmas with the Kranks, Surviving Christmas, Fred Claus, Four Christmases and similar interminable dreck, a lot of people groan at the very notion of a family Christmas film as if they're on their way to a root canal. Not to mention, Christmas movies with Tim Allen are typically a spec... read more

This One Started it All

This is the movie that started it all, the movie that launched Tim Allen's holiday leap to the top of the box office. Not that this is a good thing, unless of course you fall under the age of 10. But in the spirit of the holiday season, I might have enjoyed this film more if I didn't have to suffer through it on the Disney channel and there torturous commercials. Nevertheless, this movie may rest ... read more

A very pleasant and amiable family Christmas film

I really liked this film, it is very funny and pleasant. Tim Allen gives a truly amusing performance as Scott Calvin, who replaces Santa after he falls off the roof. The plot is original, the script is fun, and the pace is surprisingly even. Don't expect a classic like Scrooge(1951), the first 2 Home Alone movies or It's a Wonderful Life, just expect a pleasant family Christmas film, that way the ... read more

Description: Tim Allen stars as Scott Calvin, the divorced dad of Charlie. Scott is distressed to learn that his ex-wife Laura and Charlie's psychiatrist stepfather Neal have informed his son that there is no Santa Claus. While a sullen Charlie visits his dad on Christmas Eve, a noise on the roof brings them outside, where Scott startles the intruder, who tumbles from the roof. It turns out that there is a Santa after all, and Scott has just accidentally killed him. Because of a legal technicality known as "the Santa clause," Scott inherits the jolly old elf's job. As the next year passes, a not so jolly Scott grows a Santa size tu ... (more)

A very pleasant and amiable family Christmas film

“I really liked this film, it is very funny and pleasant. Tim Allen gives a truly amusing performance as Scott Calvin, who replaces Santa after he falls off the roof. The plot is original, the script is fun, and the pace is surprisingly even. Don't expect a classic like Scrooge(1951), the first 2 Home Alone movies or It's a Wonderful Life, just expect a pleasant family Christmas film, that way the whole family is in for a good time. The film is directed with careful precision, and the characters are likable, though I did find the parents a tad too clichéd and the film a tad too overly sentimental in places. If I had a favourite character, I think it was Judy, there was something about her truly infectious smile that made me warm to her. All in all, well above average and highly recommended” read more
