    Don’t get me wrong, I loved Comet and Prancer as the lead reindeers in the series, but where’s the one with the ‘very shiny nose’? Anyone?

    If it’s useless information, chances are I already know it!

    Ok – so here’s MY Top 5 Christmas "MUST-WATCH" comedies – in no particular order…

    *The Santa Clause

    *Scrooged

    *National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

    *Home Alone 1 and 2

    *A Christmas Story (eventhough they air it to DEATH on TV around Christmas)

    (Ok – so I cheated by making both Home Alone movies as one choice, lol)

    Any other contributions? :)

    Why would ZZ Top use this song in the movie. Since The Santa Clause is a Christmas movie why didn’t ZZ Top do a Christmas song like White Christmas or Here Comes Santa Claus

    I wish they sequels were rated PG as well, because this film is one of Tim Allen’s best comedic performances, aside from "Home Improvement".

    Here are some of my favorite lines from "The Santa Clause" :


    Scott Calvin: This thing, you never know where it’s been. A thousand malls! Well I hope you’re happy, Comet. I hope you’re happy, but most importantly, I hope the guy that lives here IS A TAILOR!


    Laura: All Neil told him was that Santa was more of a feeling. More of a state of mind than an actual person.

    Scott: Kind of like Neil.


    Scott Calvin: You know, you look pretty good for your age.

    Little Elf Judy: Thanks, but I’m seeing someone in wrapping.


    Scott Calvin: I read him a book!

    Dr. Neil Miller: What book?

    Scott Calvin: [sarcastically] Uh, "Hollywood Wives."

    [Laura puts her hand into her face, giving off a resentful gesture]

    Scott Calvin: [honestly] "The Night Before Christmas", folks, come on!


    Sarah the Little Girl: How come your clothes are so baggy?

    Scott Calvin: Because Santa is… watching his saturated fats.

    What are some of your favorite lines????

    I know there are tons of other funny lines in the movie (MEMORIZED haha) but given the premise of the movie (you know… Santa being real and all LOL) I thought that convo deserves some brownie points too. As bratty as we all know Charlie is throughout the ENTIRE effin movie, when he says that to Neil? It’s seriously a "**hand up** FACE. PWNED." kind of moment. The line totally makes Charlie sound like he’s making a valid argument too.

    Neil: Charlie, it’s just not logical. How can one man… in one night… visit all the children of the world?

    Charlie: Not everyone celebrates Christmas. And I think there’s some sort of time continuum that breaks down once Santa is in his sleigh.

    Neil: What about fireplaces? A lot of people don’t have them. How does Santa visit those people?

    Charlie: He turns into Jell-O and– *sloop* the fireplace kind of appears, and he goes through it like this.

    Neil: What about… the reindeer? Have you ever seen a reindeer fly?

    Charlie: Yes.

    Neil: Well, I haven’t.

    Charlie: ‘You ever seen a million dollars?

    Neil: No.

    Charlie: Just because you haven’t seen it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

    Yeah NEIL. It’s called object permanence. Child developmental psychology ONE-OH-FRICKIN-ONE. Or I dunno maybe philosophy 101 and it’s ontology/metaphysics? Either way man… FACE. Haha.

    Well,I gotta admit that this is movie is pretty good Christmas viewing. Perhaps even better than "It’s a Wonderful Life". But if there’s one stupid,STUPID thing about it that left a bitter and/or sour taste in my mouth, it’s gotta be that "Rose Suchak Ladder".

    In case you’ve forgotten, it comes up when Scott is reading "The Night Before Christmas" to Charlie.

    He gets to "there arose such a clatter". On hearing this,Charlie asks Scott if he said "a Rose Suchak Ladder". Scott tells him he said "such a clatter" and explains the word "clatter".

    Soon after that,there hear a noise outside. When they investigate,they see a ladder with "Rose Suchak" written on it. Charlie says "Look dad! A Rose Suchak Ladder! Just like in the poem!".

    You may think I hate that part ’cause it uses a lame pun,but that’s not the reason. The real reason? Well,there’s two:

    1) What kinda name is Suchak? Now,Rose,I could understand,but Suchak? Not only is that not a name,it’s not even a word!

    2) Think about it,Charlie had heard that famous line as "there a Rose Suchak Ladder". Say it out loud. Sounds stupid and clumsy,doesn’t it?

    Would you rather say: "There WAS a Rose Suchak Ladder"?

    Read the article concerning the Ladder in this link:

    http://chris86.com/RT/?p=228

    Pretty valid points in that article,huh?

    You may think I’m sounding all grumpy ’cause of post-Christmas blues. Well,that’s got nothing to do with it.

    If not for that Ladder,the movie would be pretty darn near perfect.

    BTW,I think that article is rather too harsh. The movie may have had some stupid lines and stuff,but it’s definitely NOT "Forbidden Christmas Viewing".

    today it seems like we’re saturated with all these movies about "Santa passing the torch". What ever happened to the myth of the immortal santa as introduced by Santa Claus the movie, Santa Claus is comin’ to town, (and of course, the Clement Moore Poem) and the like?

    Don’t look into the Death Star, or you will die.

    I have no idea if I’m just plain stupid, but my entire life I’ve spelled Santa’s name as "Santa Clause", and I’m pretty sure many others I’ve known have as well.

    Well it turns out, the correct spelling of his name is actually "Santa Claus", which I found out when Wikipedia wouldn’t accept "Santa Clause". Then, I immediately understood that this movie is titled "The Santa Clause" because the "clause" is the document/terms of conditions that Santa has to follow. So all of these years without me knowing..

    Did anyone else know this? I’m like completely shocked. Perhaps this movie was the cause of other people’s misspellings.

    I couldn’t believe how terrible Charlie’s mother was! Kids are supposed to believe in Santa Claus!!! It’s rediculous. And the mom is dating that guy Neil. He’s a jerk. I hate the mom for going out with that guy and letting him ruin her son’s life (at the time) between a divorce and telling him there’s no Santa Claus! It makes me very angry. And Scott losing his visitation rights??? Are you kidding me? He was a better parent than the two of them put together.

    In the movie, does anyone know the locations to Scott Calvins(Tim Allen’s) house/townhouse/condo and Neil and Laura’s house is also? I know its in Canada, but does anyone have an idea to what the addresses are? I just liked Scott Calvins(Tim Allen’s)house/townhouse/condo and Neil and Laura’s house? I was just wondering. Thanks!

    I know this is off the topic. But still I remember this movie I watched as a kid. It had to do with Santa Claus & the North Pole & The Sand Man & Some villian called the Toy MAster or Toy Maker. I don’t remember the name of the movie & really wish that could remember so maybe anyone can help. It’s live action then it turns into a cartoon…& something about the boy (main character) making his christmas list on a computer or something like that. I wish I could remember more but I can’t.

    I saw this in the fourth or fifth grade and I absolutely loved it and I still do. I’m 24, going on 25 and my Christmas is not complete without watching this movie. I don’t know what it is.

    And it’s not sullen by the crappy sequels. I’ve watched them and said "meh," and wiped them from my mind.

    One of the things I have to praise about this movie over the other two is that the movie keeps the regular world separate from the elf world. The two sequels try to blend them. The first one treats the regular world as you would normally see it. There’s weird things happening in the first like Santa vanishing, chimneys widening, big objects coming out of empty bags, and so on, but during the rest of the time, it’s a realistic looking movie.

    And then the North Pole is this weird world we’re shown, but it wasn’t too weird that it came off as silly, more magical.

    In the sequels, the regular world isn’t much different, but it lacks the realistic quality that the first movie had…so it doesn’t contrast as well with the North Pole…and so the North Pole gets stepped up and become silly.

    Long story short, the sequels lose the feeling from the first movie. The real world with hints of magic leading our characters to the magical world of the North Pole. I know, I know…the newer movies don’t have the new feeling of learning of the North Pole for the characters, but the feeling of the contrasting worlds shouldn’t change.

    If the sequels kept the same feeling from the first movie, I probably would’ve liked it better.

    How heart-warming those little dudes are: Santa’s little helpers engaging in kidnapping, breaking and entering, assaulting a police officer, vandalism, aiding an escape, and harboring a fugitive, not to mention those smirky little attitudes we’d love to wipe off from here to next Christmas. I love it!

    Earlier in the movie, after Charlie said it was kind of babish to believe in tha stuff, Scott says "I believe in Santa Claus, I am not a baby". And that was after Laura dropped Charlie off at his Dad’s house, and was present in the room. And later on after they find Santa’s reindeer, he brings it up again, you said you believed in Santa. And he says "I did, I do". And then later on, ater they finiushed the rest of the route, and they were back at the North Pole. He tells Judy the elf, "I stopped beleving in Santa Claus a long time ago". So he would have lied to somebody, who do you think Judy the elf or Charlie is own son, and why?

    Was it ever explained who he was (i.e. was he perhaps a resident from same town)?

    Was it explained what happens to Santa after he is done with the suit. Such as did he perhaps return to his life? If so did he also have a family and just got to reunite with them? Also being that he was a previous Santa ~ he would have info about getting in contact with individuals that roam the North Pole … do you think he may have tried or would have?

    Sorry for all the questions but after watching all three versions of this movie made me look back to the original and wonder.

    Especially (putting into spoiler form for those who yet seen all three movies ~ so if you have not plz don’t read) in case some have yet to seen S.C. 3 ~ in that movie we are shown that when Frost takes suit the main guy goes back to his regular life to find his ex divorced again, etc etc. So guess that is why I wonder about the previous Santa who got to return to his life
