THE SANTA CLAUSE 2 (Theatrical Release USA 2002)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

The Santa Clause 2
does not improve on The Santa Clause, but it has the imagination of the first movie and the same excellent innovative staging for its scenes. Tim Allen plays both the good and bad Santa. The bad Santa, unfortunately, is cast with a simple, very plastic-looking mask which takes away from each scene in which he appears. The movie is a fair to middling Christmas flick for the whole family.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This Christmas movie became popular enough to generate three movies. If the viewer desires to watch the series, this movie continues Tim Allen’s interpretation of the story of Santa Claus’ successor.
