Summary

Nearly ten years ago Scott Calvin became Santa Claus (Tim Allen), but it all could stop if he doesn’t find a Mrs Claus by Christmas Eve. Santa also has to deal with his own son (Eric Lloyd) being on this years naughty list!

Is The Plot Interesting?

I liked the dynamics Santa Clauses kid being on the naughty list created, and the tension Santa Claus having to get a wife brings, but The Santa Clause 2 didn’t have as good a plot as The Santa Clause.

Is The Acting Good?

Tim Allen brings Santa Claus back to our screens, and when he is told that he has to get a wife before Christmas Eve – or he will stop being Santa Claus forever – you see how much Scott Calvin wants to be Santa Claus.

Is The Directing Good?

This was my first experience with Michael Lembeck, and to be honest I don’t know if I liked his directing style or not. It was a bit – or ratherĀ I thought it was – over the top during some parts of the movie.

Is The Cinematography Good?

I never really noticed the cinematography in The Santa Clause 2, so I don’t know if that makes it unfair to comment about it, but the fact that I didn’t notice the cinematography says something about it.

Is It Worth Watching?

If you liked the first one you will probably like The Santa Clause 2, because it has the same style and approaches the movie in the same way. But things take a turn with the sudden presence of a Mrs Claus.

3/5

Seeing isn’t believing; believing is seeing.
