Give it a chance - not the best but good

"When the movie started, I was wondering if I was watching a re-do of that train wreck that Tim Allen did called 'The Shaggy Dog'.

The movie is bit different in starting and takes a while to catch your interest. That's why my review says to 'Give it a chance'. I will say that anybody who has not seen the first two should steer clear of this movie. You won't enjoy it. If you have seen the other two, it is worth seeing.

I am an avid fan of Tim Allen and collector of Christmas DVDs. This will definitely be added to my collection as I am always looking for good Christmas movies for the entire family. The humor in this movie definitely not as present as the previous two. I was disappointed that the reindeers were not featured more as in the second one. Martin Short as Jack Frost was something that I was not too sure of, but he manages to pull it off.

There is more focus on Lucy (Neil and Laura's daughter) as well as the magical characters (Mother Nature, Easter Bunny, etc.). If you enjoy movies involving the paradox of time travel, there is a small bit of it but that part feels a bit rushed.

With other Christmas movies such as The Nativity Story coming out later this Christmas season, I think that they timed the release of this movie okay. If those others deliver as the trailers have shown, I think Santa Clause 3 would lose out to them.

Enjoy it and Merry Christmas!

Cute and silly, just turn your brain off...

"The first "Santa Clause" was a clever movie, and is a Christmas classic. The second movie was enjoyable, but as usual did not come anywhere near the original, but it was a valiant effort, and an enjoyable Christmas film. So, if it goes that the quality goes down with each film, does that make "The Escape Clause" a horrible film?

The plot is simple enough, Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) is starting to get a little fed up of being Santa Clause because of the added stress of his wife and her family (They do not know Scott is Santa Clause). He learns that there is another "clause" that he did not know about; he can go back in time to the day that he became Santa Clause, and stop himself from putting on the suite, and of course not become Santa Clause. Of course there is a villain "Jack Frost" played by Martin Short who is has his own ideas of what Christmas should be, and tries to use this "clause" to his advantage.

The movie overall was enjoyable, and had a very festive atmosphere. If you are expecting a great movie, go somewhere else. "Santa Clause 3" is purely about fun, but of course it has a message in too for good measure. The good thing about this movie is that we get to see more of the North Pole, and see what it may have been like if Scott wasn't Santa Clause. The bad thing is is that David Krumholtz was too old to play the elf part of Bernard and so is not in this film.

Other than that if you enjoy Christmas films, and silly movies that are geared more towards children, you'll love "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause". :D

MUCH better than I was expecting!

"I went to see this movie with very low expectations...the only reason I went to see it is because I adore Jack Frost characters in tv and film, so I was compelled to go. :) But I have to say that the third Santa Clause film is MUCH, MUCH better than I thought it would be!

The story is simple enough...part It's a Wonderful Life, part Grinch, but still thoroughly a sequel to the other movies. I was disappointed David Krumholtz didn't reprise his role as Bernard...he was sorely missed throughout. But other than that it's in the vein of the first two movies and I like how all the principal actors are solidly into their roles by now, without camping it up too much.

For me Martin Short's character carries the whole film. Short obviously had a lot of fun with the role and he makes Jack Frost come off as very witty and clever with just a touch of heartlessness about him, not just a cookie-cutter Snidely Whiplash sort of villian. He also has a great rapport with Tim Allen. Jack Frost was the best part of the movie for me and Short's performance was hysterical. As someone interested in costuming I especially love the efforts they went to in order to turn Short into Frost...the hair, the makeup, and the icicle tie especially were very good. The only thing I had issue with was the end, wherein...

****
SPOILER ALERT WITHIN THESE ASTERISKS!!

...he gets "unfrozen." Does this mean there will be no more winter? Why did he turn into Dick Clark? Seriously, what's with the hair? He looked bizarre at the end, and that's saying something, considering he was formerly a guy with frosted eyebrows and an icicle for a necktie.
****

That aside, as a cute kids' movie it does its job admirably. It's not a film for you if you're expecting Miracle on 34th Street or It's a Wonderful Life...but if you're just looking for a funny, sweet Christmas movie for your kids, then you'll love this. I wasn't very hopeful about this movie before I saw it in theatres, but now I can't wait to get it on DVD!"
