What if you caused Santa Claus’s accidental death through a series of unfortunate events? And what if that meant it was your turn to don the big red suit and carry on in his name, literally? That’s precisely what happens to Scott Calvin, the somewhat self-obsessed toy executive and divorced father in “The Santa Clause” movie. Scott begrudgingly accepts only after fighting with all his might against the sudden big round belly, generous amounts of facial hair that won’t stop growing, and propensity to be drawn to the color red.

This hilariously unique take on the staple Christmas holiday family comedy continued to find blockbuster success with The “Santa Clause 2” (2002) and “The Santa Clause 3” (2006). So, what makes this movie so unique that it became a three-movie series? The everyday, relatable characters and life circumstances of “The Santa Clause” capture just how deeply the Christmas spirit can transform our lives in the most positive of ways. Ready to watch? Here’s a complete list of cable-free viewing options:

One thought on “How to Watch ‘The Santa Clause’

  1. Mele K. says:

    Cord cutting? Why recommend movies that can only be viewed through subscriptions like Hulu which costs a whopping $64.99 a month? Cord cutting implies freeing oneself from the clutches of greedy cable companies…just to cuddle up the the “new” cable companies like Hulu, HBO Max, YouTube and Amazon? They nickel and dime the consumer with “add ons”, “rental charges”, and in Amazon’s gazillion different channels each with a different cost. Please, cord cutting doesn’t mean jumping out of the frying pan into the fire…does it?
