The Santa Clause:

3 Movie Collection

Disney's Christmas movie, The Santa Clause, starring Tim Allen, has got to be one of the funniest Christmas movies ever. Tim Allen plays the star role of Scott Calvin, an executive for a top producing toy company who has just become divorced. Scott is thrilled that his son, Charlie, comes to stay with him for Christmas vacation, although Charlie doesn't feel the same.

On Christmas Eve, Santa Claus arrives at the Calvin residence and takes nose dive off the roof of the house. With no other choice, and hopefully a chance to prove himself to Charlie, Scott takes the reigns and finishes the route. As Christmas morning approaches, the reindeer return to the North Pole taking Scott with them. It isn't until he wakes up at home on Christmas morning that he believes it's all a dream. It doesn't take long for Charlie to prove him wrong. Charlie remembers every single detail and that's when Scott realizes that by putting on the old Santa suit to help save the night, he must have inadvertently agreed to become the next Santa Claus.

Thinking the whole experience would soon be long forgotten, Scott begins to lose control of his own body, which has begun to grow a long, white beard and put on a few pounds- vastly resembling a jolly old man who lives a the North Pole. With a suspicious ex-wife and her boyfriend who is a psychiatrist, Scott finds himself in the spotlight every time he turns around. The two begin to accuse him of playing games with Charlie's mind and acting strangely. But, little do they know, there are no games to be played. The job of Santa Claus is much more than anyone had expected.

The Santa Clause doesn't end with the first movie. The demand and ratings were so great they created Santa Clause 2 and Santa Clause 3- all of which are continuations of The Santa Clause.

Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus

Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus is a funny romantic Christmas comedy starring Steve Guttenberg, Crystal Bernard and Thomas Calabro. When Santa is set to retire, his son, Nick, is ready to take over the toy empire of the North Pole. Knowing that the retirement is near, Santa's son is eager to find a wife that will be his Mrs. Claus. With the help of Santa's advisers, he is sent to Southern California in the search of his new bride. There he meets Beth Sawtelle, a widow who has turned into a workaholic for her advertising job. Due to long hours and total commitment to her job, Beth doesn't get to spend much time with her son, Jake.

After meeting Beth, Nick becomes a model for several Christmas commercials being created by Beth's ad company in order to make sure that Jake and Beth both believe in Santa. While Jake is an easy task, Beth on the other hand is gonna require a little handy work!

Santa Baby (2007)

Santa Claus Retires!

Santa Baby is heart warming comedy about Santa Claus' daughter, Mary, and the Christmas that almost didn't happen. Mary, who has high-powered job and everything she could hope for in the city.When Santa falls ill and is too sick to run the toy shop at the North Pole, Mary has to leave behind her dreams of the big city and head north. Hard at work to keep the spirit of Christmas alive, all the wishlists filled, production on queue, and to save Christmas, Mary realizes she may have taken on more than she can handle.

In Santa Baby 2, the toy shop at the North Pole is in distress again when Santa Claus isn't able to perform. This time, though, it's not because he is sick. Well, at least not physically. Santa has a mid-life crisis and Mary, once a gain, has to return to the North Pole and take care of the toys and elves in order to save Christmas. Tired of his job and burnt out with the toy industry, Santa decides to retire and pass the big red suit down to Mary, leaving her to choose between her multi-million dollar firm in New York and man she loves. As if all that isn't enough, the North Pole is threatened by a former elf with a bad grudge against Santa, who is on a mission to take over Christmas. This hilarious Santa Claus movie features Jenny McCarthy as Mary and George Wendt as Santa Claus and was released in 2007. In 2010, movie director Ron Underwood released Santa Baby 2, which was also a Christmas movie hit.
