Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this treacly holiday film introduces the idea that Santa Claus might not be real, and comes to the conclusion that he is indeed real. The film includes several mild physical altercations between Santa Claus and another man, including one where Santa knocks the man down with his cane. A fake Santa is seen drinking alcohol and one brief scene shows a bar full of men dressed as Santas drinking beer and some acting drunk. A fake Santa's pants slip down a bit as he climbs a ladder, revealing the top of his rear end. A bit of mild language and yelling pops up.

Sexual Content

The romantic relationship between the mother and her friend the lawyer is a strong thread throughout the film. They kiss several times. He proposes marriage. And at the end the film suggests she's pregnant.

Violence

Kringle gets very angry with a fake Santa and in one scene knocks him down with his cane after the man baits him by suggesting he is a pedophile.

Language

Several angry arguments occur through the film, some which include language like "fool," "big fat fake," and "cripple."

Social Behavior

Explicitly positive messages around faith in things we can't prove, an appreciation for magic and mystery, the importance of fantasy in children's lives, and the value of helping loved ones. Some mixed messages here because Santa talks a lot about how Christmas is about faith and generosity, but is squarely focused on what gifts children want.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Fake Santa drinks from a liquor bottle before he gets into the holiday parade sleigh. One brief scene shows a room full of men dressed as Santas drinking beer and acting drunk.
