To celebrate the end of 2018 and the holiday season, the Everything Action crew is watching 1994’s Christmas classic The Santa Clause for our final commentary of the year.
At the peak of his 90’s popularity, Tim Allen stars as stereotypical “too busy, divorced businessman” Scott Calvin, who has his son Charlie for Christmas Eve when they inadvertently cause Santa to fall off their roof and die. Scott puts on his jacket and finishes the Christmas deliveries and is told that he’s now the new Santa Claus. Scott doesn’t believe this but in the year following, he starts gaining weight, his hair and beard turn white and he begins craving cookies and milk. The movie is full of weird plot twists and strange details but it was a massive hit in 1994 and has since become a staple of many people’s holiday season. We’ll be watching it just in time for Christmas, so grab a copy and get ready for some family friendly Santacide with the Everything Action crew.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
