Have you ever laughed at anything Tim Allen has said or done? If not, this isn't a movie that will break that duck, being his latest saccharine outing as Santa and dismally void of laughs or charm. Not even class acts such as Martin Short and Alan Arkin can survive the humour-free zone Allen creates around himself, and once the tone gets preachy - Christmas is in danger of being "commercialised", if you please - even the tots will figure it's a crock.
