    The most brilliant thing about this movie was Martin Short as Jack Frost. So slippery, so evil, so very funny.

    This movie is a bit more amusing than the second movie managed to be, but what weights down the rating for me is the ├╝ber lame ending! And the overacting brought to us by the parents of Charlie when they finally get to the North Pole.

    So, what is this movie about?

    Mrs. Santa is pregnant and missing "tall people", so Santa decides to transform North Pole into some kind of Canadian village and bring over his wife's family - and his own as it happens.

    The reindeers are still making funny noises (they did that in the second movie too), the in-laws are kind of confused by the "short people", and some of the events that take place are sort of weird too.

    And then there is Jack Frost, who apparently controls the winter although no-one's ever heard of him, and he is very interested to be Santa's Little Helper - although he's aiming for Santa's coat for real.

    Santa is busy and stressed, neglecting his wife and family, but naturally comes to realize his error once that all is taken from him. Not very shocking, that, but nonetheless, a decent movie worth watching at least once.

But even he can't save the ship, because it has too many holes that can never be filled up, even if the movie tries to pile on more and more gags and slapstick humor. Full Review »
