Santa Clause 3 - Eine frostige Bescherung

Scott Calvin stellt nun schon seit 12 Jahren den Santa Claus da, der allen Kindern auf der Welt, zum Weihnachtsabend, die Geschenke ins Haus bringt. Doch dieses Jahr könnte alles anders werden, denn unter den Sagenfiguren hat sich ein Neider rausgestellt: Jack Frost, besser bekannt als "Väterchen Frost". Jack will auch endlich mal zu den Ehren kommen, wie sein dickbäuchiger "Kollege" im roten Mantel. Also schmiedet er einen perfiden Plan, mit dem er Santa in eine Falle lockt und dieser ungewollt von der sogenannten "Ausstiegsklausel" gebrauch macht und somit plötzlich niemals Santa Claus gewesen ist. Derweil reist sich Jack den Job unter den Nagel. Doch Scott setzt alles daran, Jacks Pläne zu durchkreuzen...

Santa Clause è nei guai

Carol, la moglie di Santa Claus, rimane incinta. Ma Babbo Natale confuso e disperato anche per la visita della sua ex-moglie e dei suoceri si spaccia per un giocattolaio in Canada insieme ai suoi gnomi facendoli passare per bambini-giocattolai canadesi. Ma il malvagio Jack Brina trama per il posto di Babbo Natale e con un inganno riesce a impossessarsi della pallina di neve di Babbo Natale, facendogli dire:"Non voglio essere più Babbo Natale" e insieme si ritrovano alla notte in cui Scott divenne Santa Claus, riesce ad indossare il vestito e diventa Santa Claus. Il vero Santa Claus invece si ritrova intrappolato in un futuro alternativo in cui lavora in ufficio senza l'ombra di un qualche rapporto sentimentale. Dopo qualche minuto, chiede ad un suo assistente che cosa ne è stato della sua famiglia, ed egli gli risponde che lui non ne parla mai. Ritorna a casa e scopre però che il Polo Nord non è diventato altro che una noiosa fabbrica di giocattoli anche molto costosi.
