The Santa Clause 2
(Tim Allen, Elizabeth Mitchell / G / 98 mins / Disney)

Overview:This sequel to 'The Santa Clause' picks up eight years after the first movie, as the North Pole, under Scott "Santa" Calvin (Tim Allen), is operating steadily and efficiently. But Santa has problems. His son, Charlie, has been a bad boy this year and winds up on the Naughty List. More troublesome is that he discovers a clause in his contract that requires him to get married or he'll lose his job forever. With his replacement keeping an eye on things, Santa heads out from the North Pole to find a Mrs. Claus and to help Charlie. But when his substitute threatens to ruin Christmas, Santa must rush home before it's too late.

Verdict:'The Santa Clause 2' is more of the same tinsel-draped malarkey that made the original film into a big hit, but it's more engaging, assured and funny. Sure it's maudlin, manipulative fluff that warms your heart and delivers a few chuckles, but it still manages to string together enough charming moments to work overall. As snappy and well reinforced as Santa's pajamas one minute, an intermittently amusing but soulless mechanism for the extraction of money from moviegoers the next, 'The Santa Clause 2' is for anyone under the age of 10 - whereas anyone over the age of 10 will have trouble stifling their boredom !
