The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
Divorcee Scott Calvin is disgusted to learn that his ex and her husband have tried - and failed - to break it easy to their 6-year-old son Charlie that Santa isn't real. On Christmas Eve, Scott reads The Night Before Christmas... then receives an unexpected visitor on his roof. When he's startled by Scott's calling out and falls, the Santa impersonator disappears, leaving only an 8-reindeer sleigh and a suit with instructions to put it on if he's involved in an accident. Scott does, and is transported around the town dropping gifts through chimneys until he's taken to the North Pole and informed by a group who claim they're elves that he is now Santa. Charlie is proud of his dad's new job, though Scott's convinced it's a dream. Until his hair turns white, his beard refuses to stay shaved, he gains weight inexplicably, even for his sudden love of junk food... Now he's accepted it, there's just one problem: how to keep it secret from his disbelieving family?Written by

During the Santa Claus lineup at the police station, the Santas are instructed to turn to their right. But when the camera cuts back to Laura, the reflection on the glass shows the Santas all still facing front. See more »

Fella, if you can hear me, I'm just looking for your identification. As soon as I find out who you are, I'll give you a lift back to the mall.

In the same version, the part where Scott says "Where the hell did this come from?" after banging into the ladder was edited. See more »
THE SANTA CLAUSE, in my opinion, is an absolutely hilarious Christmas flick! I thought that Scott (Tim Allen) was a very funny guy, although he wasn't very jolly when he was first recruited to be the new Santa. Even so, I laughed really hard when he said, "Yeah, same to you, and that's not very ladylike," "Nice teeth," and, "It felt like 'AMERICA'S MOST WANTED!'" I also laughed when he imitated cats and dogs fighting. Oh, man, those parts were funny! Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say, "Tim Allen has scored huge!" Now, in conclusion, if you are a fan of Tim Allen, and you haven't this absolutely hilarious Christmas flick, I highly recommend it, that is, if you haven't seen it.
