Trivia

At one point Santa refers to having flown over Lake Shore Drive. In "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2," Kurt Russell plays Starlord's father. "Lake Shore Drive" plays near the beginning of the movie See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the film, the girl Kate is shown as a baby only a few weeks old on Christmas 2007. Later, on Christmas Eve 2018 when her brother Teddy takes her camera away from her in her bedroom, he says "you're ten years old, almost eleven." This doesn't make sense because at this point in time, she would've already turned eleven years old a few weeks ago. See more »

Quotes

Teddy: Can't you just wave your hand, and like, Jedi mindtrick the cops?
Santa Claus: I'm Santa Claus, Teddy, not Yoda.

A Good Candidate to become a Christmas Classic
22 November 2018 | by RmatthewCSee all my reviews

This movie was very enjoyable for adults and kids in the family. Cinematic quality was excellent, had a good script, acting was great, and the Santa character is the best I've seen or read since The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. We'll watch this again a few times this Christmas season.
