The Santa Clause, The Santa Clause 2
Year: 1994, 2002
Cast: Tim Allen, Eric Lloyd
A single dad must pick up the reins when he startles Santa off the roof -- and accidentally kills him. Reading the fine print of the job description and following the manual is no easy task. It takes a lot of work to make the world jolly.
What Parents Like: Allen fills out the red suit nicely -- making the transformation from harried single dad to harried Santa completely believable. Parents will relate to the white hairs and weight that Allen gains during the holiday season.
What Kids Like: What child hasn't felt neglected by stressed-out and working parents during the holidays?
