        This was a wonderful Christmas film.It is heartwarming and reminds viewers that having a good relationship with family is really important about Christmas.It also is a gentle comedy that inspires viewers to have a little magic in their lives. The plot of the film was really great.It was about the blossoming relationship between a father and his son.During the first part of the movie,Scott and Charlie have a rocky relationship.This relationship gets most closwer when Scott

        becomes Santa Claus and Charlie believes in him when nobody else does.Not even his own mom.The plot also had an interesting concept. It was about somebody else becoming santa when Santa fell off a roof.I enjoyed this aspect of the film.The characters in the film were a joy to see.Scott Calvin was a very likable character.

        It was obvious in the film that he loved his son and was always looking out for him.When he didn’t want to put on the Santa Suit he originally got for santa,he put in on anyway to please his son.Also,despite other people including his wife thinking he had gone insane for becoming Santa Claus,he still did it because Charlie believed it was the right thing to do.Bernard is a lovable character.He is played as a generally gruff and serious elf.Despite that,he had a heart of gold and was willing to help Scott become familiar with his goal as Santa.He also becomes good friends with Charlie and even gives him a special snow globe as a gift. Judy was also a very likable elf who helped Scott become comfortable as Santa and makes him some special hot chocolate.Speaking of elves,I love how they were designed in the film.They were not portrayed as stereotypical troll like elves who were adult dwarfs. They took on the appearance of children or teens which was an excellent idea.I think this meant to show that the elves had childlike innocence and believed in the magic of Santa like children did.
