I'm not going to be the movie critic who gives Santa Claus a bad review. Not me. It's not up to the first two, but it's fine for kids, and Short is terrific.

Magical (if mindless) family holiday fun.

You look at a movie like this and wonder how some screenwriters can have the temerity to go on strike
November 21, 2007
Special effects are in abundance, but none of them are very well-produced, much like the film on the whole.

It's sad to see the life sucked out of a series that started so well.

Short's skill and total commitment to his role make him no straw-dog villain, and his chemistry with Allen helps the movie's Santa feel like a real live person and not an imperturbable icon.

Frost turns the occasion into a swag-saturated consumer orgy, which the film condemns even as it hams up product placement for Red Bull.

While it may concern elves and Christmas, 'The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause' is more dreary than cheery.
December 11, 2006
There is no escaping the banality of it all.

A little muddled and derivative but what do we expect, really?
November 28, 2006
Christmas cheer is in short supply in The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, a feeble festive farce that's more no-no-no than ho-ho-ho.
November 25, 2006
Santa's traditional cry of ho-ho-ho has never sounded more like three stab wounds of pain and horror.
November 24, 2006
Cinema is far too powerful a medium to be graded on a curve-- even when Tim Allen is involved.
November 23, 2006
Badly written, shockingly acted and appallingly directed threequel that will please precisely no-one.
November 23, 2006
You've got to hand it to director Michael Lembeck... he's succeeded in persuading studio bosses to let him make not one but two sequels from premises that were dead in the water from the word go.
November 18, 2006
Bah, humbug.
November 18, 2006
A desperately lazy and unoriginal exercise.
November 18, 2006
The movie is more cute than funny. Smiles are plentiful, but outright laughs are widely scattered.
November 14, 2006
Oh how the executives shook with their chortles as millions poured in through each cinema's portals.
