Review

Our Score
Seasonal cheer will be in short supply from anybody over the age of ten who watches this lacklustre sequel to the amiable 1994 Christmas comedy. A sugary confection of festive clich├ęs, half-baked jokes and blatant product placement, it's the celluloid equivalent of an expensively wrapped box filled with junk. Superficially the film has its charm, thanks largely to a likeable performance from Tim Allen, who buttons up the Santa suit for a second outing - this time to bag the perfect Mrs Claus or lose his job. There's also the introduction of the hilarious Board of Legendary Characters - the Tooth Fairy in particular provides a nice counterpoint to all the yuletide schmaltz. Unfortunately, the overstretched plot and absence of any impressive set pieces mean that there is insufficient magic to capture the imaginations of any but the youngest audience. It simply feels like a marketing opportunity, without the sincerity and genuine warmth the Christmas season represents.

Summary

After eight years as Father Christmas, divorced dad Scott Calvin has settled nicely into the role. He is looking forward to another season when he discovers that a clause in his contract means he has to find a wife by Christmas Eve. Disney comedy adventure sequel, with Tim Allen, Elizabeth Mitchell, Judge Reinhold, Spencer Breslin and Eric Lloyd.
