Did You Know?


This was the only "Santa Clause" movie that didn't contain a villain.


While Charile and his mom are saying good bye on Christmas Eve, Scott is shown placing a cookbook on the counter. The shot switches back to Charlie and his mom. When the shot goes back to Scott, he is placing the cookbook on the counter again.


Scott Calvin:
Not necessarily. It could be rude, sarcastic, whatever it takes!
