Nothing brings a father and son closer together than manslaughter. I think that’s the moral of The Santa Clause, the 1994 Disney picture in which Tim Allen kills jolly old St. Nick, becomes cursed by some kind of ancient elfin black magic, and earns the respect of his son. Did I mention he KILLS SANTA CLAUS?!! IN A DISNEY MOVIE?!! There’s also some stuff with Judge Reinhold, an animatronic reindeer, and a squadron of elves with jet-packs… for some reason.
Is The Santa Clause a Christmas classic, or a cautionary tale against writing screenplays based on an amusing pun? Listen to the podcast to find out!
