Film Details




105 minutes


Comedy, Family


English (English subtitles)


Scott is an ordinary father, who does not believe in Santa Claus, until a chance encounter results in him accidentally bumping off the big man himself. Scott soon discovers that there is a clause that means that he must now take on the duties of the role, much to the delight of his young son, Charlie. This seasonal comedy sees Scott learn the tricks of the trade, even as the rest of his family thinks he has gone mad. Slapstick comedy and a sentimental tone merge to create a fun, warmhearted romp that provides plenty of gentle laughs and Christmas cheer.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
