One of my favorite Christmas movies of all time! This movie is both funny and heartwarming at the same time. Tim Allen does an amazing job portraying Santa Claus.

I love this movie and has become a classic in my opinion. It has become a traditon for myself that I watch this movie every holiday season. Tim Allen does a wonderful job and I think they did a great job in casting him. I love the comedy in it.

This is a great Christmas film with Tim Allen. The plot is fun and light, and the characters are hilarious, especially Tim. The scriptwriters did a great job on this film that the whole family can enjoy.
