The Santa Clause (1994)

Scott Calvin, portrayed by Tim Allen, inadvertently becomes the jolly old elf. What ensues are hilarious attempts to keep this information from his family and employer. Not helping in the least are the facts that his hair turns white, he can’t keep his beard trimmed, and he gains a great amount of weight in a very short time. Helping him along the way are a supportive cast of elves, 8 reindeer, and his lovable 6-year-old-son, Charlie.

Rated: PG

Run time: 1 hr 37 min
