Not one of the best Santa Claus Movies but a nice Santa Movie.

A fantastic cast and a magical film, I have such fond memories of watching this as a child. Unfortunately, on re-watching this last Christmas, I was horrified to realise this is an awful film. Still, I'm giving it a decent rating for the child inside.

This is one of the first Christmas movies I saw as a child. There is an evil toy manufacturer who tricks Patch (head elf) to produce toys to eliminate the need for Santa Claus but Santa saves the day. Hooray!

It wasn't a magical Christmas movie. You'd expect from the folks who brought us the Superman films, something called "Santa Claus - The Movie" would be truly amazing. But it was a dismal bore. Santa had no personality. Dudley was good as the bad Elf. There was no magic here.

I saw this as a kid and have always liked it. It doesn't take itself too serious and thats what makes it a fun watch.

It's more watchable than critics made it sound. The cast make it worth seeing for one thing.

I couldn't get past the first 10 minutes - not my cup of tea.

One of the better Christmas movies, mostly due to some good performances. However, some of the wonder of Santa is lost in his efficiency contests and the fact that he is known throughout the world. He is basically a socialist toy company. The McDonald's commercial cracked me up, in part because I recall going to McDonald's in 1986 and getting a story book for this movie.

A good Christmas movie that seems to have been forgotten under the flood of terrible Christmas movies.
November 23, 2009
Not a terribly fun depiction of the birth of christmas... kind of a mix between christmas spirit and the CHRISTmas spirit... didn't work to well

Decades before Tim Allen killed this idea, Dudley Moore and John Lithgow did it with a certain quirky style. Fabled old St. Nick is in trouble when an evil arctic bad guy threatens to destroy him but since it's a comedy the results are often funny it between boths of just outright silly.

I used to watch this all the time during Christmas as a kid. I think this explains Santa's origin and others well.

The first will always be a classic and my favorite. I love the interaction between scott calvin and the kids. I also love the elves in this movie and there are some hilarious quotes.

When this first came out, I wanted so badly to visit Santa at the north pole....then my brother told me he didn't exist. Yep....that brother of mine is still up for auction.

Was great when i was a i got older... WTF is going on in this flick!!! People die!... Merry Chistmas!!
June 15, 2007
A cute and campy look into the Magical World Of Claus! The acting is not Oscar material, but the family will love the sweet story and holiday visuals!
March 16, 2007
the only christmas movie I can tolerate.. my reason being that the red haired girl was another one I had a crush on when I was a kid.. (come on I think she's a couple of years older than me).. and dudley moore is funny..
December 3, 2006
Santa clause was kind of lame. Don't get this confused with "The Santa Clause" That movie is really good.
December 24, 2013
Impossible to have grown up not loving this movie.
