Santa Clause Becomes Holiday Favorite

Harley Dolloff and Harley Dolloff

Some movies become a holiday tradition. Such is the case for
The Santa Clause, Family/Comedy, which was released Nov 11th, 1994.
It stars actors: Tim Allen, Eric Lloyd, Wendy Crewson, David Krumholtz, Judge Reinhold, Peter
Boyle, Paige Tamada, John Pasquin, Brian Reily, Mary Gross, Larry Brandenburg, Jayne
Eastwood, Judith Scott
It was directed by
John Pasquin
The plot follows divorced dad Scott (Tim Allen) who has custody of his son (Eric Lloyd) on
Christmas
Eve. After he accidentally kills a man in a Santa suit, they are magically transported to the North
Pole, where an elf explains that Scott must take Santa’s place before the next Christmas
arrives. Scott thinks he’s dreaming, but over the next several months he gains weight and grows
an inexplicably white beard. Maybe that night at the North Pole wasn’t a dream after all — and
maybe Scott has a lot of work to do.
Rotten Tomatoes says:
“The jokes in this movie are just as funny for adults as for kids. The really nice thing about THE
SANTA CLAUS i
s that it takes its far-out premise all the way to a logical conclusion; there are
no cheats or easy outs for Scott Calvin when the biggest job in the world is thrust upon him.
Aided by excellent special effects, this likable guy has a slow, whimsical change into St. Nick —
persistent in a disbelieving world — that is supernatural.’’
After reading reviews and watching this movie myself several times, I believe it is a great
holiday favorite to watch. I watch this movie every year following with the next two after. This
The movie is an eventful movie for the kids and parents to watch for a holiday hit. I think that
this
The movie is made for all ages and anyone would enjoy watching it because it is rated for all
ages.
Also this movie just comes with some really good laughs that could be used any time.
