The Santa Clause I loathed Home Improvement too but when you see that dull sitcom's Tim Allen on the big screen, you know that's where he belongs. The plot is a spaghetti junction of twisted logic in which Allen dons a Santa Claus suit and finds himself sprouting silver whiskers and a beer belly. Against the odds, this looks like the comedy of the season.
Living in Oblivion An affectionate but scathing insight into the chaos that is independent film-making. Director Steve Buscemi seems forever on the verge of epilepsy, but the excellent James Le Gros is memorable as a preening primadonna.
