Reviewer:Matthew Tobey, While the premise about a man accidentally killing Kris Kringle suggests a dark comedy, at its core The Santa Clause is a mostly straightforward holiday comedy. Choosing a role that virtually plays itself, the film was a smart choice for Tim Allen, making his transition from the small screen to the big one. Playing Scott Calvin never demands Allen to overreach, leaving the audience more than satisfied with his performance. But the film was never meant as a showcase for anyone's acting chops, and it's the clever and heartwarming script that makes it an overall winner. Beyond the concept, there are a handful of genuinely funny moments as Calvin struggles with the fact that, like it or not, he's the new Santa. Likewise, the family story line is touching without being too sappy. While it might have been interesting to see The Santa Clause in the hands of a cast and crew that could give it an edge and some bite, the end product here is a more than adequate offering for the whole family. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
