Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) has been Santa Claus for some 8 years now. He has grown to love the job and he doesn't want to give it up. There is just one problem, he didn't read the card very well. OK, he would need an extra powerful magnifying glass to see the Missus Clause on the card. In other words Santa must get married and he only has 27 days to do it.
Problems arise when Santa starts to revert back to Scott. The beard is becoming shorter. He is not as plump as he should be. Santa is losing it all. So Santa takes a break and goes back to being Scott Calvin and has to see if he can find a wife. He confides his problem to the Millers, Laura and Neil (Wendy Crewson and Judge Reinhold) and even goes as far as telling Charlie (Eric Lloyd) his son about his dilemma. Problem Charlie is having problems and it's hurting his school work.
Now while Santa is out looking for a wife, Bernard (David Krumholtz) has a duplicate Santa made so no one will be the wiser. The new Santa starts to take on things for his own and wants to turn all children into naughty little boys and girls. He even goes as far as making a small army of toy soldiers to help him take over. He wants all children to receive coal for Christmas rather than toys and gifts.
Now Scott is out there trying to find a wife while all this is taking place. One day he has to got to school because Charlie has been in trouble. He meets the Principal Carol Newman (Elizabeth Mitchell) and almost immediately there is a spark between the two. Has Santa found his wife well watch the rest of the movie and you will find out.
Director Michael Lembeck does a wonderful job with this movie. It is entertaining and a joy to watch at the Holidays. Tim Allen brings Santa to life and makes him just a little human for all of us to enjoy. Find out if Santa is going to get lucky and if he can get the North Pole back from the duplicate Santa. Merry Christmas.
