The Santa Clause Movie Review Summary

Actors: Tim Allen, Judge Reinhold

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Santa Clause

When the real Santa Claus falls off the roof of Tim Allen's home, Allen's character dons the red suit and becomes St. Nick himself! Of course, there's some of "Clause" involved. While the "old" Claus is rehabbing in a hospital, the "new" Claus travels around the world delivering gifts to all of the children. A fun-to-watch holiday classic that would spawn a sequel.

A man and his son sees Santa fall off the roof, get in his sleigh and must suddenly accept the job and responsibilities of being Santa, which he doesn't believe is happening. He is alienated from his divorced wife who thinks he has a mental problem.
The review of this Movie prepared by Amy Teutenberg

Toy maker Scott (played by Tim Allen) catches Santa Claus sneaking around on his roof. He yells at him, which startles Santa Claus into falling off the roof and knocking himself out. When Scott puts on Santa Claus' coat, he magically becomes Santa Claus. His small son believes he has actually become Santa Claus, though Scott is in denial. Everyone else around him thinks he is delusional. Some wonderful special effects and explains of how Santa could really deliver all those toys in one night.
