Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The scenes in which Fake Santa torments the elves with a toy soldier army are twisted enough to make it worth sticking around through the mawkish courtship."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Village Voice
"Has less charm than coal in a stocking."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"...more of a high-tech extravaganza than a touching fantasy."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The Santa Clause 2 is chock full of heartwarming holiday cheer."
‑ Tyler Hanley, Palo Alto Weekly
"Ao sair do cinema, eu estava feliz e com saudades de um tempo em que, para mim, a existência de Papai Noel era um fato inquestionável."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The Santa Clause 2 is a barely adequate babysitter for older kids, but I've got to give it thumbs down."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"This one deserves a "bah humbug.""
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Fun for those for whom Hogwarts or Middle Earth are a little too tiring or scary, a cinematic lump of coal for everyone else."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"...stocks itself with unoriginal and cheap slapstick violence, cloying performances and ridiculously forced sight gags and smirking jokes that wouldn't melt a snow flake on a Sears hotplate"
‑ Frank Ochieng,
"In spite of the fact that the only reason this film exists is to make money off the success of the first, there are genuine moments of cuteness and believability pulled off by people who should be doing better things but are still waiting or searching for"
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"A bloated, prefab sequel that gets stuck in the chimney."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Sitcom-level predictability and treacle."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Amazingly, the film juggles all the elements well without being messy, instead playing fair and tying up all the loose ends."
‑ Nick Rogers, State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
"The script for not perfect, but with Allen's help it delivers more hits than misses."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"A pleasant holiday diversion, but like most sequels, not as good as the original movie."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
