6. The Santa Clause
People sleep on The Santa Clause so hard. It is for sure a top 10 Christmas movie of all time. Tim Allen at the height of his powers playing a deadbeat dad who isn’t allowed to see his son. The best Christmas movies are built on sneaky mega depressing premises like custody battles.
Any Christmas movie that starts off with the death of Santa Claus is an instant classic in my book. Give me Mrs. Doubtfire but instead of Robin Williams, it’s Tim Allen and it’s Christmas time. Yup, I will be watching this December.
