Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that kids will probably be eager to see the third tale in this fun, tame holiday movie series. Although it's rated G, there's still plenty of slapstick violence. Jack smacks Scott in the face with a snow shovel, and, in another scene, Jack gets run into and knocked over. That said, Santa's pad at the North Pole is one happy place. There are plenty of magical scenes in this movie that make you believe reindeer really can fly and magic really does exist in the world. And, oh, all those sweet treats!
Mrs. Claus is pregnant.
Some slapstick violence: Scott gets smacked in the face with a shovel; in another scene, his pants are on fire. Jack gets knocked over. Also, Santa falls off a roof and disappears -- literally -- leaving behind only his clothes.
Jack is selfish and wants to be Santa for his own gain. He schemes and tricks Scott into relinquishing his Santa role. Jack is rude to kids and adults, "frosts" people, and causes Christmas chaos everywhere.
Toys and snow globes factor greatly into the storyline.
