Now that this is out, I've got some thoughts:

-After 3 movies I am really starting to question how the North Pole economy works. As it is located in a "Winter Wonderland" where no plant life can be seen, they're certainly not growing the grain that goes into all those cakes and cookies. Where exactly is the financing coming from? The film would probably cop out and say "Magic" if it actually said anything.

-We see elf "children". If the immortal "elves" are procreating, this can only further hurt the economics question above.

-Is Cocoa basically crack to elves?

- Why does Santa trust Jack Frost so quickly after learning he's been trying to steal his thunder in 250+ incidents with cardboard cutouts in North American shopping malls?

-Why are people flying to the "North Pole Resort" to pay to get on Jack Frost's "Nice List"? Paying thousands of dollars for airline tickets,lodging, theme park tickets, winter clothing, and food (at >theme park prices<) to get a dance number and a pogo stick... I don't buy it.

-The back half of the movie also reeks rehashing the tropes of "Its a Wonderful Life" to a GREAT degree.

-The power of love? Fuck off.



More thoughts to come, but I'm finding this hard to digest as a canonical entry in The Santa Clause film series...

Eric Lloyd also really phoned this one in as Charlie. It seemed as if the actor was too busy attending Dunston Checks In fan conventions at the time to give them more than half a day.

I must say that this was my favorite Judge Reinhold Film Universe film since The Santa Clause 2, however.

Not Guilty!

Anybody hear any news of a new Santa Clause film?

I keep thinking, daily, about whether or not they'll recast Judge Reinhold or have him back for another film.
