The first film was cute and I enjoyed it to some extent until it got too cheesy. Same goes with the sequel. One point it’s fine to watch, but then some things just get too dumb and lame for me. Maybe I’m older now and don’t care for these types of films as much. Who knows. I still laughed and liked some parts of this Xmas flick though.
Santa Clause 2 first takes us into the North Pole seeing Santa chillin with his slaves we call elves. His annoying son Charlie is on the, uhhhh ooohhh “Naughty List.” I’ve been on that list since I was born. Santa also finds out from his two head elves that he has to get married before Christmas Eve or he won’t be Santa anymore. So pretty much Santa got game and finds a wife a few minutes to Christmas Eve. She’s a hottie too, I think she was in some nude scenes with Angelina Jolie in Gia so I might have to watch that film again hehe. As Santa is down in the U.S., with trying to help out Charlie and find a Mrs. Clause, his stupid Elf made a robot Santa to help around at the North Pole and basically becomes super evil and wants to give the kids coal. I like the robot Santa, he was creepy and funny. Other parts of the film I liked is when Santa is down trying to impress this Principal (Charlie’s mean school principal), he uses magic and crap to show off.
At a teachers’ Xmas party, he gives all these depressed teachers toys they always wanted when they were kids and you see them playing with it. That was cute. There was also a lot of stupid things I hated in the film as well. The reindeer were so lame, they could have been a lot better. Lame meaning the way they talk. Could have done it a different way. Like them just grunting maybe? Not this retarded babble that makes you cringe when you hear it.
The CGI was also done poorly. The first movie’s CGI was bad as well, you would think it would have a decent budget to make some better computer graphics this time around. I also hated the Elf kid, who was also in the movie The Kid. Yeah, he’s annoying and needs to be punched. I liked some parts of this movie but I prefer the first film to this one. I’m sure they’ll pull another idea out of their asses to make a third movie since it’s doing well at the box office.
Favorite Scenes: The fairy tale characters, the teacher Xmas party
