Synopsis


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

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause
Tim Allen returns as a regular guy-turned-Jolly Old Elf in the second sequel to the 1994 hit The Santa Clause. Scott Calvin (Tim Allen), who doubles as Santa Claus, has settled into his home at the North Pole with his new wife, Carol (Elizabeth Mitchell), and is preparing for another Christmas when he receives a visitor -- Jack Frost (Martin Short), the cold-weather sprite who has been sent to help out St. Nick by Mother Nature (Aisha Tyler) and Father Time (Peter Boyle) after making a scene at a meeting of the Council of Legendary Figures. However, while Jack is supposed to acting as an assistant to Santa, he has a habit of making things go haywire, and as it happens this is no mistake -- Jack is hoping that an exasperated Santa will quit his position so Jack can take over and finally have a holiday he can bend to his will. Meanwhile, Scott has invited Carol's parents, Bud (Alan Arkin) and Sylvia (Ann-Margaret), over for a long-promised visit, but since he needs to keep his other identity a secret, he and his elves are forced to go to great lengths to convince them that they're actually in Northern Canada. Wendy Crewson, Judge Reinhold, and Spencer Breslin also reprise their roles from the first two Santa Clause films. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The Santa Clause
Television sitcom star Tim Allen made his big screen debut with this light, family-friendly holiday comedy. Allen stars as Scott Calvin, the divorced dad of Charlie (Eric Lloyd). Scott is distressed to learn that his ex-wife Laura (Wendy Crewson) and Charlie's psychiatrist stepfather Neal (Judge Reinhold) have informed his son that there is no Santa Claus. While a sullen Charlie visits his dad on Christmas Eve, a noise on the roof brings them outside, where Scott startles the intruder, who tumbles from the roof. It turns out that there is a Santa after all, and Scott has just accidentally killed him. Because of a legal technicality known as "the Santa clause," Scott inherits the jolly old elf's job. As the next year passes, Scott rapidly gains weight, grows a white beard and meets the elf Bernard (David Krumholtz) -- who is the one who really runs the North Pole -- while Charlie regains his Christmas spirit. However, Neal becomes concerned about Scott's sudden change in appearance and insistence that he's Santa, and he forces him to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. Director John Pasquin previously directed Allen in the TV series Home Improvement and would team with him again for Jungle 2 Jungle (1997). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    At this point the first Santa Clause is pretty much well regarded as a Christmas season classic. It is funny and charming and unique even if it's responsible for teaching an entire generation the wrong spelling of the word (for the irony of the in film storyline gag) and that if you kill Santa maybe you get to become him. The sequels get subsequently worse, but that doesn't change the fact there's a magic and charm to them that kids will love and families can vicariously live through. The blu-ray's aren't going to break any records for quality of picture, sound or bonus material, but they all do a serviceable job in giving this series the best looking and sounding editions we've yet to get.

    We have always loved the Santa Clause movies with Tim Allen. Previously we owned the first movie on VHS and the third on DVD. With the purchase last year of a Blu-ray player it was time to grab this bundle on Blu-ray. Contrary to any previous reviews of the bundle whether on this site or elsewhere, the first movie does have a very good picture quality and is displayed in a widescreen format. Obviously it was not filmed in HD seeing as how todays HD standard was not yet adopted but yet it is still an improvement over the versions shown over the air, cable, and satellite.

    Have been waiting forever for the blu ray version of the first santa clause. The only version I had was the first edition DVD with no anamorphic widescreen or great sound or anything. Definitely a great upgrade. At first the opening sequences are a little dark and fuzzy. But gets better. The other 2 movies are a lot better in picture quality but they were made in the latest digital age but the first movies upgrade from the original( in the non digital age) wins it for me. Also the price can't be beat. Get it and enjoy!! I am!!!

    It was time to show these gems to the next generation... very good quality transfer to BluRay. Enjoyable! First, you can’t go wrong with a Disney collection... next, it’s Tim Allen! For the youngsters, seeing the man that is the voice of Buzz Lightyear as Santa Claus is mind blowing! The humor of these movies are great for kids and adults alike, while trying to keep the mystery of Santa intact.

    Wife is a big fan of these so we have to watch around the holidays. We were watching an old DVD version and it just didn't sound right. Picked these up, also because they're Blu Ray and couldn't believe the difference in sound. If you have a home theater setup, spring for the Blu Ray version, don't even bother with DVD because it's cheaper.

    My son and I enjoy the classic holiday films. 'Charlie Brown', 'Frosty', 'Rudolph' among others. Even 'Jingle All The Way'. lol. We count these films among the classics. 1 & 2 especially. The 3rd...well...not bad, but not awesome. This trilogy is a definite MUST OWN.

    It was great to find this collection together since I'm in the long process of rebuying the stuff I previously had on vhs from when I was a kid. The value is awesome and so is having it on a format that will stand the test of time a bit longer.

    I love Tim Allen and loved all three The Santa Clauses. My family every year try to either DVR them or catch them on television. However, now that we own the collection, we can watch them anytime. We actually watched them yesterday on Thanksgiving.
