Editorial Reviews

Tim Allen is back in the big red suit for more adventure and laughs in Disney's hilarious family comedy. Get ready for a thrilling sleigh ride as the reluctant Santa Claus faces his most chilling and hysterical challenge yet. As Christmas nears, Scott Calvin invites his in-laws (Ann-Margret and Alan Arkin) to join the festivities. The holidays take a chaotic turn when Scott discovers a way out of his "Santa Clause" and the mischievous Jack Frost (Martin Short) puts the big freeze on Christmas' big cheese! Unless Scott can save the day, it's going to be a very chilly Frostmas at the North Pole and all around the world. Will Scott be able to get his job back in the St. Nick of time? Celebrate the holidays with THE SANTA CLAUSE 3: THE ESCAPE CLAUSE, complete with exclusive bonus materials, including a musical Christmas Carol-oke feature. It's a gift the whole family will treasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance - not the best but good November 10, 2006
Verified Purchase
When the movie started, I was wondering if I was watching a re-do of that train wreck that Tim Allen did called 'The Shaggy Dog'.

The movie is bit different in starting and takes a while to catch your interest. That's why my review says to 'Give it a chance'. I will say that anybody who has not seen the first two should steer clear of this movie. You won't enjoy it. If you have seen the other two, it is worth seeing.

I am an avid fan of Tim Allen and collector of Christmas DVDs. This will definitely be added to my collection as I am always looking for good Christmas movies for the entire family. The humor in this movie definitely not as present as the previous two. I was disappointed that the reindeers were not featured more as in the second one. Martin Short as Jack Frost was something that I was not too sure of, but he manages to pull it off.

There is more focus on Lucy (Neil and Laura's daughter) as well as the magical characters (Mother Nature, Easter Bunny, etc.). If you enjoy movies involving the paradox of time travel, there is a small bit of it but that part feels a bit rushed.

With other Christmas movies such as The Nativity Story coming out later this Christmas season, I think that they timed the release of this movie okay. If those others deliver as the trailers have shown, I think Santa Clause 3 would lose out to them.

Enjoy it and Merry Christmas!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and silly, just turn your brain off... September 18, 2007
The first "Santa Clause" was a clever movie, and is a Christmas classic. The second movie was enjoyable, but as usual did not come anywhere near the original, but it was a valiant effort, and an enjoyable Christmas film. So, if it goes that the quality goes down with each film, does that make "The Escape Clause" a horrible film?

The plot is simple enough, Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) is starting to get a little fed up of being Santa Clause because of the added stress of his wife and her family (They do not know Scott is Santa Clause). He learns that there is another "clause" that he did not know about; he can go back in time to the day that he became Santa Clause, and stop himself from putting on the suite, and of course not become Santa Clause. Of course there is a villain "Jack Frost" played by Martin Short who is has his own ideas of what Christmas should be, and tries to use this "clause" to his advantage.

The movie overall was enjoyable, and had a very festive atmosphere. If you are expecting a great movie, go somewhere else. "Santa Clause 3" is purely about fun, but of course it has a message in too for good measure. The good thing about this movie is that we get to see more of the North Pole, and see what it may have been like if Scott wasn't Santa Clause. The bad thing is is that David Krumholtz was too old to play the elf part of Bernard and so is not in this film.

Other than that if you enjoy Christmas films, and silly movies that are geared more towards children, you'll love "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause". :D

God Bless ~Amy

4.0 out of 5 stars Santa Faces a Third Clause November 20, 2007
Christmas is coming, and things are busier then ever at the North Pole. Not only does Scott Calvin, aka Santa (Tim Allen), have to get ready to deliver toys all over the world, but his wife Carol (Elizabeth Mitchell) is getting ready for a delivery of her own.

She is also missing her family. So Scott decides to invite her parents (Alan Arkin and Ann-Margret) to visit for the holiday. Scott's ex-wife and her family also manage to get an invitation as well. But the visiting family only adds to the stress load.
But that's the last of Scott's problems. Jack Frost (Martin Short) feels left out. He wants his own big holiday, not just to be the front-runner of the big red guy. When he is almost tossed from the Society of Enchanted Beings, he talks Scott into letting him help get everything ready for the big day.

Unfortunately, Jack's real mission is to sabotage Santa's job and learn the secret of the escape clause. If he can do that, he'll take over the role of Santa and leave Scott with nothing. Will he succeed?

I love the first film in the series and enjoy the second. This one is just as enjoyable. Yes, the story is predictable, but it is entertaining and heartwarming. I felt like cheering at the end.

And the actors continue to do a great job. The entire cast from the first two movies is back, with one noticeable exception. David Krumholtz wasn't able to return as Bernard. While his character was missed, it didn't hurt the film too much.

There is lots to laugh at in this movie. There are lots of great puns on the word elf and some great visual gags as well. Unfortunately, the Canadian jokes (they pretend to be Canadian for the in-laws), do where thin fast, eh? I especially enjoyed the way they worked bits of the first film into this one.

Is this the magical classic the first one was? Nope. Is it still an entertaining Christmas movie? You'd better believe it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Decent Movie, that Kids would enjoy April 25, 2007
By Missy
It wasn't the best movie, and granted it was probably the weakest of the three, but as long as the kids enjoyed it, and judging by their reviews they did, I'm happy.

This movie started out strong, but towards the end, it felt rushed. Like the director and the production team realized they were running out of time and had to wrap the movie up ASAP. But, it was still decent. It was better than half the crap they have out in the movie theaters now.

Will I buy this DVD? Of course. I have the first two, and I can't leave the trilogy open. And the bonus features are a big plus from me.
