Corrected entry: When Santa arrives at the north pole he asks an elf who is in charge. She tells him she has shoes older than him and turns to walk away. Santa goes after her and camera angles change. The elf is a different actor in the second part of the scene.
Corrected entry: The morning after Scott goes to the north pole, he goes outside with no boots on. When he goes back in he has boots on.
Corrected entry: On the table at Denny's is a little plastic holder with a card advertising egg nog. In all the shots of the table the plastic holder is facing toward Scott. But in the very last overhead shot, it is facing towards the empty seat to Scott's left.
Corrected entry: When the "dead" Santa is on the ground, his suit has a belt, which is buckled. Scott picks the suit up and heads to the sleigh. Later when he's in the sleigh and puts the suit on, Charlie says "you forgot the sash" and Scott ties the sash. There is a sash now where there used to be a belt and a buckle.Ashley17
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, just as Scott Calvin takes over the Santa duties, he visits the house of a little girl named Sarah. Right before Scott rudely asks Sarah if she still wants the doll and flings it into her Christmas tree, Sarah asks Scott why he doesn't look like Santa, why he has no beard, etc. You can easily tell her two front top teeth are missing (loss of baby teeth). However, towards the end of the film and seemingly a year later to the date, Scott (now full blown as Santa Claus) visits Sarah's house again and he is now very kind to her. When she tells him that the milk she left him this time was soy milk, you can easily see her two front top teeth are still missing. Very unlikely a year later.
Corrected entry: When Scott Calvin and Charlie have got in the sleigh and Scott has shouted 'Let's go', the sleigh flies off the roof and moves onto the road along side a truck. At first glance the sleigh looks like its moving on the ground, then in the next shot it looks like its off the ground, and then it goes back to moving back on the ground before flying off to deliver presents.
Corrected entry: During the jail break scene, the ELF cuts the jail door hinges with tinsel. Then they lift the door out of the way. When they pull the door out, the bolt is flush with the door and was not locked.
Corrected entry: When Scott is looking at the huge list of names with "Armand Asante" on it, you can see that the second page is the same as the first.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Santa is getting his new equipment for his run, the elf giving him the stuff is named Quentin. This is a reference to the James Bond films - the guy who issues Bond's equipment is named simply Q.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie when Neal is hanging up stockings on the mantle, he only hangs one up for Charlie. In the next scene, there are three stockings hanging (one for each family member).
Corrected entry: When Scott shouts at Santa he falls off the roof because of the slippery snow. Minutes later both Scott and his son climb on the roof via a tailor 'presented' ladder and both have absolutely no problem walking on the slippery snow.
Corrected entry: The girl who left out milk the first Christmas and buttermilk the second Christmas for Santa had a tooth missing, pretty prominently in the front. The next year, everything is the same, including the missing tooth. Wouldn't it have grown back?
Corrected entry: When Scott Calvin hears something on the roof and he goes outside, he sees Santa on the roof. He calls to Santa, "hey you", and Santa turns around and slips. As he's sliding down the roof he's coming straight for Scott (and it shows that from Santa's view, he's going to hit him) but in the next shot Santa has landed way to the right of Scott and on a big pile of nice soft snow.
Corrected entry: When Scott Calvin is wearing the Santa suit in the early part of the film, the coat has a strip of white fur down the front. However later, as Santa Claus in Dr. Miller's living room, when he gets arrested, the coat has two fur pom-poms down the front. And after he gets released and comes back to the house, there is only one fur pom-pom on the front of the jacket.
