The Santa Clause (1994)


Movie Review

Directed by: John Pasquin

Starring: Tim Allen, Eric Lloyd, Wendy Crewson, Judge Reinhold, David Krumholtz, and Peter Boyle

If there ever was a Christmas curse, it was that of being Santa Claus.  While divorced father and ad exec Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) is spending time with his son Charlie (Eric Lloyd) on Christmas Eve, he hears a clamoring on his roof and decides to investigate it.  When he shouts at the trespasser, the man loses his balance and falls off the roof to his death.  That trespasser just happens to be Santa Claus.  When you kill this jolly old man though, you have to take his place because of a legal technicality known as the Santa clause.  Soon, Scott gains lots of weight, grows a white beard, and is brought into a world of never-ending holiday cheer.  The Santa Clause is a modern film that captures all the classic cheer of older holiday films.  With Tim Allen on board, the film is also pretty funny.  Allen’s big screen debut is one film you can’t miss if you enjoy a good holiday flick.
