  1. While it lacks the original's streamlined core, the father-son relationship, the sequel gets by on assembled moments of sentiment

    A nice little holiday movie.
  3. Isn't perfect, but it's fun, and Tim Allen shines

    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 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.
