Overview

Eight years after getting a crash course in the fine art of personifying Christmas, Tim Allen returns as Kris Kringle's replacement in this sequel to the 1994 hit The Santa Clause. While Scott Calvin Allen initially had mixed feelings when he became the new Santa Claus, after eight years on the job he's come to enjoy being Father Christmas, and he and the Elves are looking forward to another holiday season when things begin going a bit wrong. Scott finds he's becoming less and less "Santa-like," and his son Charlie Eric Lloyd has become difficult enough to land on the official "Naughty" list. Scott discovers most of his problems stem from an obscure passage in his contract with the North Pole which decrees that he has to find a Mrs. Claus. Scott has little choice but to start dating, but he soon learns that when you're a big guy from the North Pole who lacks conventional employment, single women do not come running. In order to leave him more time to search for a wife, Scott and the Elves create a duplicate Santa to keep an eye on the shop; however, the "other" Santa turns out to be more Naughty than Nice, and in time Scott has to wrestle control of the North Pole away from his doppelganger. Wendy Crewson, Judge Reinhold, and David Krumholtz also reprise their roles from The Santa Clause.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Like most sequels -- especially those eight years in the making -- The Santa Clause 2 is bursting at the seams of its Santa suit with extra subplots and places for your eyes to look. Unlike most sequels, the latest Tim Allen holiday vehicle actually pulls it off. Surprisingly, what's new is every bit as effective as what returns. It could even be argued that the sequel's three most whimsical ingredients are all fresh: comically gifted child actor Spencer Breslin as an elf, Allen's own synthetic dictator of a doppelganger, and a reindeer that speaks in irresistible reindeer gibberish. If the above weren't enough, the team of screenwriters (there's almost one per character) finds room for fellow folklore icons like the Tooth Fairy and Mother Nature, and even introduces a frosty principal (Elizabeth Mitchell) for Allen's Scott Calvin to thaw. The whole concoction overwhelms a viewer's better notions that this is just a corporate, profit-driven enterprise. Although the screenwriters distribute screen time miraculously among the disparate components, left out in the cold is Eric Lloyd as Scott's son, reprising from the first movie -- which makes him a decidedly awkward age to write. That's why his "acting out" takes the form of spray-painting graffiti about the principal on school walls, which just never makes much sense for his character. Other than that, the script really does have it both ways -- pursuing equally interesting plot lines both at the North Pole, where Allen has a dandy time playing the robotic impostor, and back home. The Santa Clause 2 generates enough populist charm to appease all but the most cynical purists -- who were never its target audience in the first place.

    Best of the 3 Santa Clause Movies! I LOVE this movie! And it's one of my favorite Christmas movies. If you are a romantic at heart and never too old for the magic of Santa Claus, this is a great film. The girl who plays Santa's love interest is an excellent actress who plays her role with emotional depth and nuiances. Her performance really makes the film believable. This is a wonderful movie!

    A movie for anyone who never stopped believing in Santa Clause

    I Thought this was way better then the first Santa Clause. And Even the lines were better in it too. I barrowed the fullscreen DVD from my aunt , watched five times and returned it. My Two brothers liked it , my parents liked it , and I liked it too. Infact I liked it alot that my parents made me go out on my own and buy the widescreen DVD. I'll Never Be Sorry For Buying It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A funny Christmas classic!

    I loved this movie! I thought it was HILAROUS and it was a lot better than the first one! While this movie has a great plot line and the funniest jokes, this movie misses the reason for the season: The Birth of Jesus. Santa Clause is more in the "spotlight" and Jesus is never mentioned. I love this movie, but don't forget that Christmas has a more significant meaning than Santa Clause, toys, candy canes, Christmas trees, decorations, or anything like that!

    A christmas disapointment.

    Tim Allen really bombed on this one . I found it to be two hours of total boredom with little plot and a lot of senseless antics. Couldn't even keep the kid's interested. We don't need any more like this.

    better than the first

    the santa clause is a great step by from the first one. SC2 is great. i normally hate sequels but i 100% don't hate this sequel. i hope there will be a santa clause in a couple of years, but if it doesn't happen i will not have a problem.

    Cutest movie!

    I loved this movie! I was a huge fan of the first one and the second one was so cute too! It's one of those movies that gives you a warm fuzzy feeling at the end! So sweet!
