Clause 2 is a delightful, funny comedy that should appeal to young and
old. Santa Claus/Scott
Calvin (Tim Allen) leads a group of elves making Christmas presents at
the North Pole when heís told a loophole in his contract (clause 2)
requires that he has to get married before Christmas or he will no
longer be Santa Claus (hey, this is a fantasy!).
Santa returns to his home and son, Charlie (Eric Lloyd) to find
a wife, after having himself cloned (he thinks) so there will be a
Santa to run the show in his absence.
the clone turns into a dictator, while Santa falls in love with the
principal of the school attended by his son, Carol (Elizabeth
Mitchell). Heís run out
of magic so when one of his loyal elves shows up to tell him the
disaster thatís occurring at the North Pole, he finds he has to
discover another way to return.
is clever and can appeal to both children and adults.
Tim Allen is funny in the dual role of Santa and his clone.
But the person who stole the film for me was little Liliana
Mumy, who plays the daughter of Scottís former wife, Charlieís
half sister. She is
adorable and a wonderful actress.
Clause 2 is a happy entertainment thatís uplifting and has you
leaving the theater feeling better than you did when you entered.
