  1. While it lacks the original's streamlined core, the father-son relationship, the sequel gets by on assembled moments of sentiment
  2. Reviewed by: C.W. Nevius
    A nice little holiday movie.
  3. Isn't perfect, but it's fun, and Tim Allen shines
  4. Reviewed by: Jon Strickland
    While the film is not entirely successful, it still manages to string together enough charming moments to work.
  5. Has the disjointed feel of a bunch of strung-together TV episodes.
  6. Sweet enough while it lasts.
  7. Allen, who's a natural charmer, seems to be at half-strength here.

    Love this holiday film, one of the best holiday movies ever made! There is so much laugh-out-load moments for all the family with such a lovely cast, an amazing story line and a warming family movie! Expand

    This sequel is not as good as the first because of the story, but it is still a lot of fun. It has some great moments and Tim Allen gives another great performance. Expand

    The only people you could like in this movie are Tim Allen and the guy who played the tallest elf with black hair. But the boy who played the "smart" elf was TRYING to make his voice sound "grown-up", and made the worst gestures. The girl who played the elf who brought Santa's cocoa was an awful actress. Did you notice that when she screamed it looked like she was smiling? ..... And those giant toy soldiers he made were absolutely disturbing (especially the look on their faces...yikes!) This film had its moments, but the lines were stupidly written. Epecially when the pilot says, "I hear something. It sounds like little hammers." Little hammers? What KIND of pilot says that?! Yes, this movie was definitely made for the youngsters, though it had some adult-humor in it. Expand

    The Santa Clause 2 manages to keep a low distance behind the first installment, while still having enough cheer to pull it off. But like the first one, it has many flaws, and it feels like we've seen it already. Expand

    Slapstick,zany,and above all STUPID. It's amazingly boring and the humor isn't the greatest.
