The Santa Clause

Other mistake: Near the beginning, Scott and Charlie are flying in the sleigh down a road next to a truck. During the entire scene, the truck driver is constantly jerking the wheel to the right and left yet the truck remains in a perfectly straight course.

Other mistake: When Santa falls off Scott Calvin's roof, he slides in a straight trajectory that lines up just off center of the front door, meaning Santa should have fallen smack down on the snowless concrete walkway, not a few feet over onto the snow-covered lawn.

Other mistake: A Federal Express driver delivers hundreds of boxes to Scott Calvin. They contain the names of all the children in the world. Scott opens a box and picks up the top page and begins reading the names. The second page in the box is identical.

Steven Lee

Factual error: Finishing his rounds on the morning of Christmas Day, flying over downtown Chicago, the sun is over the horizon west of Chicago, Sunrises occur in the east, not the west. (00:26:10)
