The Santa Clause 2

(2002)

What's Christmas fun without some reindeer games?

In the belated second instalment in The Santa Clause trilogy, Tim Allen reprises his role as Scott Calvin, a 46-year-old divorced father who has inadvertently become the new Santa Claus.... More

Scott Calvin has been in the role of Santa for the past eight years, and his loyal elves consider him the best one ever. But Scott's world turns upside down when he's dealt a double whammy: not only has his son, Charlie (Eric Lloyd), landed on this year's naughty list, but Scott discovers that he must marry by Christmas Eve (pursuant to the "Mrs. Clause") or he will lose his position as Santa forever.Hide

  • More of the same tinsel-draped malarkey that made the original film into a big hit, but it's more engaging, assured and funny, and I liked it more. Full Review

  • Contains just enough good cheer to surmount overbaked writing and overblown visual effects. Full Review

  • All these developments and challenges facing Santa weigh down the plot so heavily that they drain all the film of its energy and needlessly strain credibility. Full Review

  • It's mildly sentimental, unabashedly consumerist ... studiously inoffensive and completely disposable. Full Review

  • You may not want to believe it, but the belated follow-up to Tim Allen's 1994 clunker is actually a pretty good movie. Full Review
