More Info:
  • Ellen A. Kim

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

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The movie is not a special effects extravaganza like "The Grinch," but in a way that's a relief. It's more about charm and silliness than about great hulking multimillion-dollar high-tech effects.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Won't replace anyone's annual viewing of "It's a Wonderful Life." But your family could find a worse way to take a holiday break.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • C.W. Nevius

    A nice little holiday movie.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    For an anonymous Saturday afternoon, it's the best lump of coal Hollywood can jam in your stocking.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Frankly, if I were Mrs. Claus, I might be looking for Santa Clause 3, outlining the grounds for annulment.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Isn't perfect, but it's fun, and Tim Allen shines

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Festooned with cute, mugging kids; lots of jazzy redos of beloved Christmas tunes on the soundtrack; and enough tug-at-your-heartstrings moments to make an entire theater feel warm on a blustery winter afternoon.

    Variety Full Review
  • Bill Stamets

    Television director Michael Lembeck maintains a tidy pace suitable for commercial breaks, and though the committee-written script cites fuzzy logic, eBay, and Utah marital customs, it predictably avoids any mention of Christ.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Mark Caro

    No question, the new movie is amiable family entertainment, and Allen is such an affable actor that maybe kids won't begrudge him seeking romantic fulfillment in order to remain their favorite Santa.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Allen has fun with all his roles -- The rest of the acting is bland, but the movie's preteen target audience won't mind, and adults will find occasional grown-up jokes to chuckle at.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Keith Cassidy

    This sequel, while lacking the freshness of the original, shares much of its charm and for the most part rises above some trite, syrupy dialogue.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    There's not a moment in it that feels fresh or authentic or inspired. But neither is it offensive.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Has the disjointed feel of a bunch of strung-together TV episodes.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Entirely inoffensive, so it makes for perfect family fare -– but only if the children are young enough to be indiscriminating about what they're seeing.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Steve Simels

    You have to have a certain affection for any movie in which a stressed-out Mother Nature announces ominously, "Don't mess with me -- I'm pre-El Niño."

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Jon Strickland

    While the film is not entirely successful, it still manages to string together enough charming moments to work.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    Tony Burrough's vast Toy Workshop and Elf Village at the North Pole is the film's strongest asset. The workshop is a dazzling and accurate display of the Art Nouveau style in sinuous full flower.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Marrit Ingman

    Sweet enough while it lasts.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Despite the obviously mercenary nature of this sequel, there's a thimbleful of clever ideas at work here, most notably in the way Allen's RoboSanta begins to turn his toy factory into a tiny dictatorship.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Once more, Tim Allen drops a lump of coal down the chimney.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Captures the true spirit of the holiday. It's mildly sentimental, unabashedly consumerist (with anything-but-subliminal advertisements for McDonald's hamburgers and Nestlé candy tucked inside), studiously inoffensive and completely disposable.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    If you value your time and money, find an escape clause and avoid seeing this trite, predictable rehash. The 90 minutes could be better spent doing holiday shopping.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The movie is as padded as Allen's jelly belly.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    Allen, who's a natural charmer, seems to be at half-strength here.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The only parts of the film that ring true -- and they sometimes ring touchingly true -- are the ones that give Mr. Allen simple human themes to work with.
