Santa Claus: The Movie
  

Year: 1985
Directed By: Jeannot Szwarc
Starring: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This is the story of a master toy maker who discovers a magical kingdom of elves in the North Pole and becomes Santa Claus. But when Santa’s eager-to-please elf Patch leaves the North Pole for the big streets of New York City, he becomes mixed up with a dastardly toy tycoon’s plans to take over Christmas. And so begins Santa’s adventure – to rescue his faithful elf and to save Christmas for all the children of the world!

The origin of Santa Claus is beautifully told. The sets and costumes are just wonderful. And though I look at this as one of my favorite Christmas movies.. There is a glaring issue. and that’s with the second act. The story centering on Patch, and his quest to seek Santa’s approval, is a turn into left field and really takes away from this movie.
