The Santa Clause 3

2007-01-16 17:35

Tim Allen reprises his role of Scott Calvin - AKA Santa - as he juggles a full house of family and the mischievous Jack Frost (Martin Short), who is trying to take over the "big guy's" holiday.

At the risk of giving away the secret location of the North Pole, Scott invites his in-laws (Ann-Margret & Alan Arkin) to share in the holiday festivities, and upcoming birth of baby Claus with expectant wife, Carol, - AKA Mrs. Claus (Elizabeth Mitchell).

Along for the adventure are Scott's extended family, son Charlie (Eric Lloyd), ex-wife Laura Miller (Wendy Crewson), her husband, Neil Miller (Judge Reinhold) and their daughter, Lucy (Liliana Mumy) who, together with head elf Curtis (Spencer Breslin), foil Jack Frost's crafty scheme to control the North Pole.

What the critics are saying:

"This Styrofoam snowman of a sequel overdoses on its own candy-cane-colored sugary cheer."
- Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly

"...whatever once appealed about this seasonal franchise now has all the warmth and flavour of Boxing Day leftovers." - Neil Smith, BBC Movies

"Perfect entertainment for five-year olds and sheer torture for the unlucky parent(s) accompanying them to the theater."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews

"It's squeaky clean, but you might die of boredom."
- Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
Tim Allen tries to flog a tired joke to death in The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause. Fa la la la, forget it.
