Summary

When Santa Claus (Tim Allen) invites the in-laws (Ann-Margret, Alan Arkin) for a visit, he has to keep his biggest secret from them while trying to stop Jack Frost (Martin Short) from taking over the North Pole and ruining Christmas.

Is The Plot Interesting?

Out of all of The Santa Clause movies, this one entertained me the most and that’s because it asks the question ‘What if Santa didn’t want to be Santa?’ and I thought that was a nice concept!

Is The Acting Good?

Tim Allen reprises his role as Santa Claus in The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause but it’s newcomer Martin Short who did a great job as Jack Frost. He adds a little bit of tension and suspense to the movie.

Is The Directing Good?

The directing wasn’t groundbreaking but it was alright for the movies needs. A movie like this doesn’t need to rely on the directing and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause definitely takes advantage of that.

Is The Cinematography Good?

Some of the scenes had really good cinematography, but then others didn’t. If it had been more consistent and more fluent it wold have been a lot better. Which in turn would have given the movie a boost.

Is It Worth Watching?

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause is my favourite out of the trilogy, mainly because Martin Short gave a good performance as Jack Frost. I think kids will love it and enjoy all the joy and Christmas spirit it brings to the festive season.

3/5

You’re not Santa anymore. You’re just the guy who smells like a cookie.
