"SURE TO BE A HOLIDAY CLASSIC."
-Jeffrey Lyons, "REEL TALK"/NBC-TV
This is a story you've never heard before, a hilarious and heartwarming comedy about Fred Claus, Santa's brother - and complete opposite. After growing up in saintly Nick's shadow, Fred becomes a grouch who's lost his belief in Christmas. Then, one magical December, Fred flies north (first class via reindeer) to find brother Nick is in trouble: a scheming efficiency expert is out to shut down Christmas forever! Expect fun by the sleighful as Fred helps save Christmas and rediscovers the gift of family. Join Vince Vaughn, Paul Giamatti, Miranda Richardson, Rachel Weisz, Kathy Bates, Kevin Spacey and more in a yuletide treat to enjoy for years to come.
Yes, this movie was corny, but it's a Christmas movie so that's to be expected. Still, it certainly had its moments and the fact that it has two of my favorite actors - Vince Vaughn and Kevin Spacey - doesn't hurt.
