The Santa Clause

Friday the 15th of December

Hosted by Miles and Anthony


USA: 1994 -- Directed by John Pasquin

Starring Tim Allen, Judge Reinholt, Eric Lloyd, Wendy Crewson and Mary Gross

"This Christmas, the snow hits the fan."


Neglectful divorced dad inadvertently frightens Santa off his roof and, when he puts on the deceased St. Nick's suit, begins to turn into Santa Claus himself--first on the outside, and then, more significantly, on the inside. Clever script by Steve Rudnick and Leo Benevenuti takes a potential one-joke idea and develops it in interesting and unexpected ways, effectively infusing heart and sentiment into its 1990s sensibility. Impressive screen debut for standup comic and TV sitcom star Allen.--Leonard Maltin

Hope to see you there. We'll save you an aisle seat and some leftover fruitcake.

"Can we take a direct flight back to reality or do we have to change planes in Denver?" --Scott Calvin (Tim Allen)


Awards

Won People's Choice Award for Favorite Comedy Motion Picture

Tim Allen Nominated for MTV Movie Awards for Best Breakthrough Performance and Best Comedic Performance


Memorable Quotes

Judy: Not too hot. Extra chocolate. Shaken, not stirred.

Scott's Doctor: Weight can fluctuate from year to year.
Scott Calvin: Fluctuate? You make it sound like I'm retaining water. I've gained 45 pounds in a week!

E.L.F.S. Leader: We're your worst nightmare. Elves with attitude.


Goofs

Continuity: Scott, wearing his new Santa Claus pyjamas, runs barefoot outside his apartment to question his son about the previous night's visit to the North Pole. Before he goes back inside, however, he is wearing athletic shoes.
