Product Overview

Holiday magic mixes with comical chaos at the North Pole in The Santa Clause 3. Tim Allen reprises his role as 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 and 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.

Editors Note
Note THE SANTA CLAUSE 3: THE ESCAPE CLAUSE, the third installment of the popular holiday series THE SANTA CLAUSE picks up with Everyman-turned-Santa-Claus Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) just days before Christmas. Not only is toy production behind schedule, but another special delivery is on its way--Scott's wife, Carol/Mrs. Claus (Elizabeth Mitchell) is pregnant. To add to the pressure, Carol's parents are coming for a visit, prompting an emergency make-over for Santa's Village (into a nondescript Canadian town) to protect Scott's true identity. With all this on his mind, Santa is more than happy to let his fellow seasonal icon Jack Frost (Martin Short) step in and help out. But Frost has an ulterior motive: angry over his secondary-figure status and longing to have his own holiday, he tricks Santa into giving up his reign, and Christmas falls into the hands of Frost. Scott, no longer Santa Claus, must decide between resuming his previous life or saving Christmas from the coldhearted Frost.^This film conveys the message that Christmas is about family and the human spirit--not commercialism. In addition to the holiday association, the film also encourages teamwork and problem solving through positive means, even when things look like they can't get any worse. THE SANTA CLAUSE 3: THE ESCAPE CLAUSE is an entertaining holiday film, perfect for the whole family, and a fitting continuum of THE SANTA CLAUSE series.

Review You get what you expect with The Santa Clause 3. The two previous movies in the franchise have adequately prepared potential viewers for the experience of sitting through the third. The bland sameness of these films disallows the possibility of differentiating between them. They're lazy, live-action cartoons (think of the Rankin-Bass Christmas specials come to life), full of juvenile comedy, overt sentimentality, and holiday good cheer...The movie looks like it was made cheaply. The actors, set design, and special effects are worthy of made-for-TV fare, so The Santa Clause 3 probably doesn't have to draw huge audiences to realize a profit, and the franchise name has enough pull to lure at least a few families to pre-Christmas weekend showings...In the future, however, I hope I can annually honor Rankin-Bass by enjoying The Year without a Santa Clause.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News Allen and Short seem to be having so much fun that their enthusiasm is entirely contagious. Let the season begin.
