The movie's as icy as Jack's hair, as lifeless as its animatronic, flatulent reindeer.

Perfect entertainment for five-year olds and sheer torture for the unlucky parent(s) accompanying them to the theater.

It's all as genuine as tinsel and as stale as last year's candy cane, but there are a few very mild pleasures, including Alan Arkin and Ann-Margret as Scott's in-laws and a loony dance number with Short backed by elves.

What is seriously missing here is any sense of fun and warmth, which the other movies did possess. This one looks like work.
November 2, 2006
There's little in this unnecessary sequel to put you in a festive mood -- unless you just love bad Canadian jokes, farting reindeer and manufactured 'magic.' Humbuggery!

You play Santa Claus once with enthusiasm, twice with affection, three times for a paycheck.

Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, with Martin Short as Jack Frost, means we're getting a turkey and a ham for the holidays.

Mrs. Claus having a baby is creepy. At least we don't see the birth, the sight of Mrs. Claus in stirrups would have been too much to bear.

It's time to send this one-trick reindeer to the glue factory.

A desperately lazy and unoriginal exercise.

Kids, you can tell how much your parents love you by how far away they keep you from this worthless fiasco.

Special effects are in abundance, but none of them are very well-produced, much like the film on the whole.

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.

so bad, it makes me want to convert and celebrate Hanukah this year.

This movie is either going to warm the coldest cockles of your heart, or you're going to throw up all over yourself before slipping into a diabetic coma.

November 4, 2006
Despite Martin Short's highly entertaining turn as Jack Frost, this second sequel lacks the charm of the first two 'Santa Clause' movies.
November 4, 2006
The gag reel that plays over the end credits is funnier than this slushy comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

While it may concern elves and Christmas, 'The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause' is more dreary than cheery.
