How to watch ‘The Santa Clause’ movies

A transformation of jolly proportions.


Jaime Carrillo


The forces governing Christmas are powerful, but who knew they were also incredibly litigious. When successful toy salesman Scott Calvin accidentally causes the real Santa Claus to plunge to his death from his roof, he slips on his coat, and together with his son, delivers toys to all the good boys and girls across the globe. But that’s just the beginning of his troubles. Little did Calvin know that slipping on the red and white coat triggered a binding contract, making him the new Santa Claus–whether he wants the gig or not. What ensues is a year of transformation. Sure, Scott becomes disillusioned with the commercialism associated with the holiday. But more importantly, his waist grows to what can only be described as jolly proportions. Starring Tim Allen, this ’90s family film has already entered the fantastic Christmas movie pantheon, not to mention, a full-fledged franchise with two sequels under its plus-sized belt.
