Predictable, dated holiday film is refreshingly multiracial.

Audience Reviews for Call Me Claus


It was okay - one of those movies that's good for background while doing other Christmas activities.

Sarah Prisbylla

Super Reviewer

Typical holiday movie. Santa is at the end of his reign and must find replacement. His replacement does not believe in him and is not the nicest person on earth. He must help her to believe. Typical but I still think it's a cute holiday movie.

Whoopi makes a wonderful Scrooge in this unusual take to the bah humbug story. It is closer to Ernest than to A Christmas Carol so be ready to laugh.
