Again, I watch these Christmas stories every year during the Christmas holiday, and enjoy it every time I watch it. Amazon should keep this on the regular show instead of charging.

So, there are three movies in this trilogy and this is by far the best and as an adult, the easiest to sit through multiple viewings of if you have small children that tend to find a few favorites and want to watch them constantly. The quick and dirty synopsis of the plot is that Scot Calvin (Tim Allen) is an executive at a toy company, divorced with a young son who is doing well, but has kind of lost his way when it comes to the spirit of Christmas. On Christmas Eve his son wakes him because of a racket outside and they discover Santa on the roof. Startled, Santa takes a tumble off and after Scot puts on the coat & hat the adventure begins as he takes the reigns as the new Santa.

The movie itself is fun, cute, and of course... safe for kids. It's got a little going on for adults as well, but the target audience is absolutely kids. My 10 year old will sit through it without protest and the 3 year old really likes Santa, the elves, and of course the reindeer. It's no Home Alone, but if you are looking to round out your more recent Christmas classics, this is a title worth owning.

If you're looking for one of the best, not really kid safe Christmas movies... pick up a copy of "The Ref" as well and watch it after the kids go to bed. You can check out a quick review on that title as well in my profile.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday and that this review helps you decide if this is a title worth owning.
