Great movie for the whole family.
Samantha P.
Our parents' generation had such wonderful classics as "Holiday Inn," "White Christmas," "It's a Wonderful Life," etc.

Nit that his other movies were bad (I liked them all), but they were missing something.

The first Santa Clause was a wonderful take on the big guy in red. It made me a believer in Santa Claus. It showed how human Santa is.
The Santa Clause 2: The Mrs Clause was just as awesome. This time, Santa must find a Mrs. before Christmas Eve otherwise Santa will become Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) for good.
The movie was geared towards children; or children at heart. This time there are more elves, 2 Santas and a reindeer in training named "Chet". The opening sequence is precious. It shows a militaristic view of how Santa and the elves keep their "North Pole" home a secret. Then there was the scene with the "symbols" of make believe. There was Mother Nature, Father Time, the Easter Bunny, Cupid, the Sandman and the Tooth Fairy (or as he wanted to be known as THE MOLINATOR.
Charlie (Eric Lloyd), Scott Calvin's son, is all grown up and getting into plenty of trouble. He is rebelling against Christmas because he cannot tell anyone what his dad does for a living.
Scott's ex-wife Laura Miller (Wendy Crewson), now married to Neil (Judge Reinhold), is the legal guardian of Charlie. Her part was small.
The movie centered on Carol Newman (Elizabeth Mitchell), the principal of Charlie's school. She is constantly giving Charlie a hard time because of his behavior. Scott, or Santa, comes in to talk to her and save his son from being suspended. In the process, he (Scott) starts to pursue Carol because the "Mrs Clause" runs out Christmas Eve. Santa, now Scott because he has "desantaficated" himself, has a little Santa magic to use. If he runs out before finding a wife, he cannot return to the North Pole.
Our lovable head elf, Bernard (David Krumholtz) is back. He has the task of keeping the North Pole afloat while a duplicate (& military style) plastic Santa runs things.

If you are looking for an excellent holiday family comedy that the entire family can enjoy, than buy the SANTA CLAUSE 2 on DVD or video! In the sequel to the first hit comedy, Scott Calvin (played by Tim Allen) is in grave trouble. First his son Charlie (played by Eric Lloyd) is destroying the school with graffiti and infuriating the evil principal Ms Newman (played by Elizabeth Mitchell) and then the elves up at the North Pole reveal that if Santa isn't married by Christmas, he'll stop being Santa forever! So Scott creates a new robotic clone of himself and goes off to find the Mrs. Clause, while at the same time the robot is taking over the North Pole!! Will Santa save the day in time....and still get married to Mrs. Clause?? This movie is great for all ages and has an excellent returning cast and characters, including some new elves and reindeer!! Two thumbs up for THE SANTA CLAUSE 2!!!

Our parents' generation had such wonderful classics as "Holiday Inn," "White Christmas," "It's a Wonderful Life," etc. I think it's taken Hollywood a VERY long time to come up with something remotely as wonderful as those old movies and finally, albeit this one is not a musical, but they've finally achieved it in "The Santa Clause" series. If you don't have these, you definitely need to get them both. Honestly, Tim Allen is just wonderful in them and really makes the story quite frankly. Writers or not, he just takes it and goes and I would think that the majority of what he says is "ad lib" on his part.

This sequel to the first is really great. You never really buy sequels as a rule, but this one is definitely different. When Allen finds out he has to get married to stay Santa, it's pretty amusing to see what the elves go through to get him married off. Everything from making a "fake Santa" gone bad, to destroying the fake Santa's army of bad tin soldiers, keeps the kids entertained throughout. It's a very sweet story, one that explains a lot about the Santa legend to those children with questions. It definitely has the Disney touch, with I think is great and not a marketing thing at all as indicated in the review at the top of this item description. Anyway, be sure to grab this set - I still feel really sad when Allen is refusing to be Santa in the first movie and the sad face of the child that they show afterwards. It's just heartbreaking. Buy these and have wonderful memories with your children, so that they can enjoy them with their children. There's no "White Christmas" song by Irving Berlin on this one, but if you really miss it, then just play it in the background and pass that video on down too!

A nice holiday film. Pretty good sequel. Not quite as warm as the first, but touching at times and certainly enjoyable family entertainment. The plot is ok; the writing is good.
About seven years after the events in the first "Clause", the North Pole is bustling with activity about a month before Christmas. The opening sequence gives a nice, fanciful view of Santa's village and workshops. You see Santa as a good manager/leader happily encouraging the elves in their efforts.
But trouble is on the horizon - literally in the opening sequence and figuratively in the form of two problems: Charlie, Santa's son, has grown into a teenager and is getting in trouble for rebelling against a repressive school principal with no holiday cheer; and Santa finds another "clause" that says he must find a Mrs. Claus or he will be "de-Santafied", reverting back to Scott Calvin. And he has only 28 days before this marriage must occur, coinciding of course with Christmas Eve.
A cute scene occurs at the North Pole as it is Santa's turn to host a Board Meeting of Legendary Characters: The Easter Bunny, Cupid, The Tooth Fairy, Mother Nature, Father Time (Peter Boyle) and The Sandman (Michael Dorn of Star Trek:TNG fame).
Charlie now has a six year old stepsister and this young actress does a very nice job with her role. She is charming.
While Santa is away looking for a wife and tending to Charlie's troubles, bad tidings occur at the North Pole - beware of soul-less technology and a rigid enforcement of "the rules"!
I don't like giving anything away for people who plan to see the movie. I would suggest that this movie will work much better if you have seen the first movie. So if you haven't seen "The Santa Clause", rent and watch that before this.
