THE SANTA CLAUSE (1994 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

The Santa Clause—a good, clean holiday flick for the preteen and adult audience—weighs in at the lovable and imaginative level. Tim Allen has the perfect charisma for the part of Santa Claus. Watch for Judge Reinhold as character Dr. Neil Miller and the late Peter Boyle as Mr. Whittle.

Storyline

Santa Claus slips from Scott Calvin’s (Tim Allen) roof and disappears into the front yard’s snow-covered lawn. When Scott dons Santa’s red coat, he begins metamorphosing into Santa’s successor.
