"Santa Claus" is for the true christmas lover,a dying breed.Excellent.

"Santa Claus", or "Santa Claus:the movie" is one of the most traditional and magical christmas films ever made, in my opinion. Despite what others say, this movie grasps all of the fantasy,mystery and meaning of Christmas,and presents it in an entertaining family flick. This film was the basis of my children's Christmas beliefs,who will,might I add,also defend this film strongly. I think that anyone who does not enjoy this "feel-good christmas movie" either wasn't in the right state of mind while watching it, or is just a scrooge!

In the middle ages, kindly toymaker Claus and his wife Anya deliver toys to the village children. They and their reindeers, Donner and Blitzen, are caught in a snowstorm. Following prophesy, they are taken in by the elves or Vendequm led by Dooley. The Ancient One proclaims Claus, Santa Claus. As work mount, Claus elevates modern-minded Patch (Dudley Moore) as his assistant but the toys are shoddy and Patch is demoted. Claus befriends two orphans, homeless boy Joe and rich girl Corneli. Patch leaves the north pole and heads to NYC where he works for Corneli's step-uncle, corrupt toy manufacturer B.Z. (John Lithgow).

The first half is a Santa Claus origins story. It's functional but lacks much drama. David Huddleston is a big burly guy but I finally realize that he doesn't have enough jolly. Dudley Moore as an elf is silly. Maybe they should make him a drunken elf. There is a change in the middle as the movie arrives in the modern world. First off, the product placements of McDonald's and Coke are jarring. A homeless kid is ill-fitting Dickensian. Lithgow is going overboard into cartoon villainy. "Christmas II" It turns into tacky camp. If that's the point, then the movie should shorten the first half and fully embrace its tackiness.

Bah humbug!

These are the kind of movies I hated as a kid - message films that told me how to feel, act and behave. This is why Godzilla and King Kong are my idea of holiday films - beasts condemned by the world who only want to destroy the works of man! Feliz navidad!
