Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus (quick movie review)
Like Arthur Christmas, Steve Guttenberg is about to become Santa Claus because his Dad is retiring – and, like The Santa Claus 2, he has to get married. And, like the lesser known Finding Mrs. Claus (oh, I’ll get to that one!), he has to go out to the real world to meet a bride because… humans and elfs don’t breed? I guess. It’s fair to say that Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus isn’t the most original movie
So, Armin Shimerman (Quark from Star Trek) is the elf in charge of getting Steve Guttenberg’s Nick hitched, and he furnishes him a list of potential finances, who all happen to live in southern California. We never get to meet any of these women as characters, but Nick quickly dismisses them all and meets Crystal Bernard (you know, she played what’s her name on Wings) and she casts him in a commercial that her advertising agency is working on for a big new client. Anyway, Guttenberg works his ass off in this movie as reminder to everyone that he can actually act and continually does a hilarious “ho ho ho!” sort of laugh every once in a while just to remind the audience that he’s Santa Claus. There’s an ENDLESS amount of product placements in this movie, although coke and pizza hut are the most obvious and overall, the movie is nothing special. I give it a 5 out of 10.
