Scott Calvin, is a divorced father whose strained relationship with his son Charlie, begins to mend only after a bizarre twist of fate transforms him into the new Santa. When the current Mr. Claus falls off the roof on Christmas eve, Scott dons Santa's suit, and he and his son are whisked off to the North Pole. There he meets Bernard the head elf, who tells him about the clause, a contract stating that whoever puts on the santa suit must also take on all the responsibilities that go with the position. Scott isn't too thrilled about his sudden career change. Charlie, however, is overjoyed. Over the next 12 months Scott gains an enormous amount of weight and sprouts a full white beard. Though he fights the inevitable, when Christmas eve arrives Scott and Charlie, eight reindeer and the Elf Swat Team strive to make believers of all of us, and in the events that follow, it becomes clear that Scott indeed is the real Santa.
What if your dad was Santa Claus?. Scott Calvin is an ordinary man, who accidentally causes Santa Claus to fall from his roof on Christmas Eve and is knocked unconscious. When he and his young son finish Santa's trip and deliveries, they go to the North Pole, where Scott learns he must become the new Santa and convince those he loves that he is indeed, Father Christmas..

When Santa goes up you can see the string but after all the movies is so good (I gave it a five stars)
What were they thinking?
I love this movie so funny emotional to me. One my favorite Christmas movies
Hateful Tim Allen ruined the movie...
Love the concept
I loved this first Santa Claus movie that I watched last night. I am going to watch the next one on NETFLIX.
Very funny and entertaining
I love the movie. Watch it every year. Better than all the other ones in the series of movies. Merry Christmas everyone.
Always love Tim Allen
Must watch it every Christmas!!!
I enjoyed the movie for the MOST part. But Tim shouted a lot throughout the movie. In fact, during the sequence when he first arrived at the North Pole he yelled so much and so loudly that, though my TV was set to a moderate volume, people outside walking by were complaining about the volume. For some...demented...reason, Mr. Lembeck felt it was necessary to amplify Mr. Allen's voice to ridiculous levels. After the incident, on subsequent replays, I've actually been embarrassed to watch that sequence. I get that he was being portrayed as obnoxious transitioning to gentle and sweet. That was OVER THE TOP though!
I have watched this movie every Christmas since I was 8 years old. I love it.
