Santa Claus Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) has returned home just when things were getting busy - to chase a bit of skirt. He's been told that if he doesn't get a wife by Christmas Eve, then a process of de-Santa-fication will rob him of his beard, belly and job. While he is out looking for a wife, whizz-kid elf Curtis (Spencer Breslin) creates a surrogate Santa who, unfortunately, has begun displaying symptoms of megalomania. This is a children's movie that doesn't attempt the difficult trick of trying to appeal, Shrek-style, to both kids and adults alike but displays enough invention and original wit to keep fans of the original happy.
