Very sweet movie

Good movie and nice relationahip between the father and son. I like that no one is portrayed as stupid or evil. Do think carefully if your child is still a believer.

Not for Santa believers

Please don't watch it if your kids still believe in Santa. My 7 year old got very upset because they were way too many people who kept saying Santa wasn't real, and it made her question her beliefs. We had to have many follow-up conversations afterwards about whether or not Santa is real. Be careful! But great if your child is over 10.

Great Holiday Fun!

THE SANTA CLAUSE is whimsical, comical, and over-the-top. It is cheerful, original, implausible, and gently touching. For a full dose of holiday cheer, look no further. The film is suitable for most families. Parents should know that the film tackles some mature issues like divorce and child custody. However, there is nothing inapropriate about it. Several adults talk about how they don't believe in Santa, but in the end the big man's existance is confirmed.

One of the best holiday films ever!

Perfect film for the Holidays! This is one of my favorite movies to watch throughout December (besides Home Alone). It's family themed, so it's perfect for any family to watch together on a cold winter's day/night or just whenever :) I love Tim Allen, always have. He is so lovable and funny, his role as Santa was amazing. The movie is fun and heartfelt. It will definitely put anyone in the Christmas mood! It deals with divorce and a small child having to switch living places with both his mom and dad, the film implies that Santa doesn't exist several times (so if your little one is sensitive, pass on this movie because they might become upset.) There is some minor arguing. Violence isn't much, just a fall off a roof and some guns shown during an arrest. No bad language. Any jokes would definitely be overseen by younger viewers. GREAT classic holiday fun, a must see!!!

A 7-year old's review

This is an awesome Christmas movie! But there are police and jail and stuff. Everything turns out fine. There's lots of elves, toys and Santa-like stuff in this movie. It's not scary, but younger ones may be scared of the jail and stuff [it's not harsh]. It's a really fun movie.

I think its a good movie

Helps the skeptical believe in Santa all over again. Has situations that kids can relate to (divorce and parents new friends and feeling torn). We watch this every Christmas.

Great Hoilday Film

This movie was very funny. A good one for the whole family to watch every Christmas. But if you don't believe in Santa... you might not like it too well. There is some mild dirty humor but it is very subtle and safe for younger kids.
