Santa Clause 2 [WS] [DVD] [2002]

The 2002 sequel to Tim Allen's holiday blockbuster The Santa Clause is given a more than adequate treatment on its first DVD release. For a film directed primarily at children, there is a surprising abundance of special features packed into this single-disc package. Director Michael Lembeck provides a feature-length audio commentary track for viewers interested in some insight into what went into the film's creation. For more behind-the-scenes info, a making-of featurette and a "Tour of Elfsburg" are included too. Additionally, fans of the film should be happy to discover a selection of seven scenes that were left on the cutting room floor and a collection of humorous outtakes. For younger audience-members, there is a game that can be played on the TV, interviews with other mythical holiday characters and, several DVD-ROM games and activities. On the technical side, the disc features a 1.85:1 widescreen transfer of the film that preserves its original aspect ratio (a full-screen version is also available), the English, French, and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, and optional English subtitles are available.

The Santa Clause 2
Eight years after getting a crash course in the fine art of personifying Christmas, Tim Allen returns as Kris Kringle's replacement in this sequel to the 1994 hit The Santa Clause. While Scott Calvin (Allen) initially had mixed feelings when he became the new Santa Claus, after eight years on the job he's come to enjoy being Father Christmas, and he and the Elves are looking forward to another holiday season when things begin going a bit wrong. Scott finds he's becoming less and less "Santa-like," and his son Charlie (Eric Lloyd) has become difficult enough to land on the official "Naughty" list. Scott discovers most of his problems stem from an obscure passage in his contract with the North Pole which decrees that he has to find a Mrs. Claus. Scott has little choice but to start dating, but he soon learns that when you're a big guy from the North Pole who lacks conventional employment, single women do not come running. In order to leave him more time to search for a wife, Scott and the Elves create a duplicate Santa to keep an eye on the shop; however, the "other" Santa turns out to be more Naughty than Nice, and in time Scott has to wrestle control of the North Pole away from his doppelganger. Wendy Crewson, Judge Reinhold, and David Krumholtz also reprise their roles from The Santa Clause. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
