It looks like Disney is starting to understand that animation is not the only entertainment people desire! This is a pretty good little flick! I can not say this movie is outstanding, but it is enjoyable (in fact it is pretty funny).
*contains minor spoilers* I stumbled upon this movie while channel-surfing one day so I decided to sit down for 2 hours to watch it. Because of its not-so-original and predictable plot, it's an average Christmas movie. The movie is about a kid named Zack who believes in Santa and his mom's boyfriend, Peter, a TV reporter, who grew up in a dysfunctional family and has now become a grinch. One day, while Santa is flying his sleigh, he encounters some air turbulence and falls several hundred feet from the air, landing on Peter's car. Santa gets amnesia and Peter decides to let him stay at his apartment until Peter can find Santa's family--obviously, he doesn't believe it's really Santa at first while Zack is trying to persuade everyone that the old man is the real deal. By just reading this, you could probably predict how the movie will turn out. Adults may be a little bored with it, but most kids will enjoy it. I enjoyed it--the elves gave me a chuckle now and then--though I probably wouldn't watch this holiday movie again anytime soon. My score: 5/10
Leslie Nielsen was the best part of the movie! He was perfect as Santa, better than in "All I want for Christmas," albeit that was more a cameo role. He played an amnesiac Santa with just the right amount of confusion and sympathy. The part where he (re)learned the Christmas Carols was one of the most original parts. Overall a very enjoyable holiday movie.
I enjoyed this film, it is always nice to have a way to just relax and watch a Christmas movie when it is cold outside.. There is a reason a lot of people should have an icon like Santa Claus...The fantasy and mesmerizing aura of a jolly old man who is Mr Benfactor for millions and millions of children is of course the primary reason!! Other reasons however, extend to the adults!! Christmas and Santa Claus perpetuate a spirit of giving and spark a realization of how fortunate we as Americans really are, hence, we should be more like Santa Claus, and act like it is Christmas all the time!!! Steven Eckholdt was fantastic in this movie!! I am glad I watched it and I will watch it again and again...By the way: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!!
The afternoon TV schedules seem to clog up from mid-November on with usually made- for-TV Christmas movies. This one I found a pleasant enough watch, even if Leslie Nielsen in switching from an airplane to a sleigh, isn't the first person I'd think of to play Santa Clause. The story's formulaic enough, with an orphan kid growing up to be a festive curmudgeon, even in his day job as a roving TV reporter on the look out for happy, "and we end tonight with..." stories. Because Santa apparently ignored his childhood letter asking him for a family, he won't commit to his pretty co-worker single-parent girl-friend and her young son. However when old Santa falls out of his sleigh right on top of his car, gaining amnesia in the process, from there you can pretty much predict the minor twists and turns in the plot before the expected happy ending shows up. There's a sub-plot of a fairly eccentric bunch of elves trying to track down their boss in time for the Christmas deliveries, but the main fun is how humbug Peter re-connects with his inner child and in so doing makes things right in his private life. The lead boy and girl are nice enough in their lovey-dovey parts and even the kid playing the young son holds back the sentimental-come-smart-aleck routine so commonplace with child actors in films like this. Neilson tries reasonably hard but with little in the way of comedic lines to deliver, comes across almost anonymously, especially hidden under a bulked up Santa costume and of course snow-white beard. You almost think it's a contract stipulation when he loses his beard for a time late on just so you can see it's really him. The effects are okay and there are lots of nice Christmas decorations in the background to push home the festive feel-good factor. Like I said, the film was pleasant, undemanding seasonal entertainment. Half way through there's a mini roll-call of Christmas classics like "It's A Wonderful Life" and "Miracle on 34th Street". "Santa Who" is well below the quality of those two evergreens, but its heart is in the right place and from where I was sitting filled up this particular spot in the schedule well enough.
