The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause
His time at the North Pole is about to go South.
Now that Santa and Mrs. Claus have the North Pole running smoothly, the Counsel of Legendary Figures has called an emergency meeting on Christmas Eve! The evil Jack Frost has been making trouble, looking to take over the holiday! So he launches a plan to sabotage the toy factory and compel Scott to invoke the little-known Escape Clause and wish he'd never become Santa.
Martin Short saves this awful material. Definitely the worst of the series.
The worst of the trilogy. They were scrapping the barrel for ideas on this one.
Week of Christmas - Film 12
More of the same, with Tim Allen the major reason to watch this third installment, like the first two. If you liked the first two, you will probably like the third too.
Favourite bit: the bloopers during the end credits.
Tim Allen's back again in this fun festive treat! With Martin Short as Jack Frost who wants to take over christmas from the big guy, Santa Clause 3 makes for ace family viewing. With Alan Arkin & Judge Reinhold.
The "epic" end of the trilogy? I actually liked this one better than part 2. Jack Frost gives the film a real villain and was a slight twist from the previous offerings.. Martin Short does a good job here, yet i wish they didn't turn him "good" at the end.. Have you ever thought frost on your windshield was good? I highly doubt it! Good family film though..
I'm not going to be too in depth with this one. Martin Short is a great addition but that's pretty much the only positive thing about this film.
The cheesy, plastic overdone sets are back, as are the kid army we're supposed to believe are actually elves. But why, WHY after such a great love angle in the second film do the writers decide to make Scott and Carol fight throughout the majority of this?
This plot is just awful, made for television. They really should and could have went elsewhere with this. Maybe Santa dealing with kids who don't want presents, but want to not be sick anymore, who want their parents to get back together, to not be…
