The Santa Clause 3 : The Escape Clause

The Santa Clause 3 : The Escape Clause, 2006 film starring  Tim Allen, Martin Short, Elizabeth Mitchell and Judge Reinhold.  Last in the Santa Clause series with Tim Allen.

In this film Santa (Allen) faces a new foe, Jack Frost (Short) who wants to take over the north pole.  To top that off Mrs Clause is expecting their first child, any day now!  To help Mrs Clause he agrees to bring her parents up for the holidays, played by Alan Arkin and Ann-Margret.  He can’t give away the secret of the north pole so he turns the village into a Canadian town.  With this distraction Jack Frost jumps in to sabotage Santa and trick him into giving it up so he can take his place.

None of the three Santa Clause films have disappointed me.  They are all greatly entertaining and a must watch every Christmas season.   Tim Allen reprises his role in the same fashion and is such a joy to watch.  Even though my children have grown up and left home I still sit every Christmas and binge watch holidays films.

The story, as with the others was very good and the great Martin Short plays a great villain in Jack Frost.  It’s too bad they haven’t continued the series because it really would sell.  I am proud to place this film in my seasonal watch again list and I am sure that many also do.

Great job, wish there were more.
