The Santa Clause

Review By John C.

Before the movie was lampooned with two needless and not very good sequels, The Santa Clause had an interesting and original premise, what would happen if Santa fell off a roof and died? Who would be the new Santa? The idea the movie has, is it would have to be whoever found him and put on his suit. What the original has, that the sequels don’t, is a good heart, likable characters and some moments of real humor. Although it is not up there with movies like Elf, it still stands up as a charming and enjoyable Christmas film, that people of any age can enjoy. Go out and watch this feel good Christmas comedy, and I doubt you will be disappointed.
