The Santa Clause 2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Santa is getting married, just after they kiss and Santa looks like Santa again, you can see in the bottom left hand corner Bernard and Curtis giving each other the thumbs up. In the very next shot, it repeats them doing this again only in a close up. (02:33:00)

Other mistake: The little girl elf pours Santa a mug of hot chocolate, but if you watch closely there is nothing in the mug when he drinks it.

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie when Charlie is in the gym, the last can of spray paint he uses, just before the Principal catches him, appears to spray 'clear'.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie, watch closely as Santa comes to tell Lucy about how he is Santa. He comes through the chimney and shakes a little bit. Later, when he leaves, that very same shot is shown (with all the same movements), only in reverse.

Continuity mistake: When Charlie goes down the rope (in the beginning of the film) to spray paint the wall in the gym, the rope hangs tight from his point of view, but loose from his girlfriend's point of view.

Continuity mistake: When Principal Carol (the future Mrs. Claus) arrives with the gang at the North Pole, she wears gloves. A moment later she doesn't wear them, then she wears them again and then she doesn't wear them for the rest of the same scene.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Santa, Curtis, and Bernard are looking at the mice that have just been duplicated, Bernards brown bag strap is twisted, but in the next shot it is straight. He would have had to take it off to fix it, but he didn't even touch it.

Factual error: When Santa is shown the miniscule print on the 'Santa Clause' card (that he is supposed to be/get married) the Elf holds an enormous lens in front of it, to make it easier for Santa to read the print. From the distance Santa is standing at, from his point of view the card should appear upside down.

Audio problem: When Abby, an elf, is about to tell Santa that Charlie is on the naughty list, she says something about 'Brazilian cocoa beans'. As this line is heard, you can see that her mouth is moving completely differently from the words we hear.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the clone Santa is sitting at his desk reading the book of rules, one of the elves gives him some cocoa and he sets his magnifying glass down. In the next shot, the magnifying glass isn't there, and in the next one it has magically reappeared.

Continuity mistake: After Santa says "yes" to the the little girl elf offering him a cookie, he takes the cookie in his right hand, but the next shot shows Santa holding it in his left hand.


Continuity mistake: After Lucy reminds Charlie that he loves his dad, she walks away and Charlie sees her as she walks off to his left, but the next shot shows Charlie looking to his right, away from Lucy.


Continuity mistake: Before Curtis announces, "The de-Santafication process has begun!", his arm is bent and his hand is holding on to the sleigh while standing a distance away (rear shot of him) but when he says the line his arm is by his side and standing much closer to the sleigh (frontal shot).


Continuity mistake: The head of the elf who asks Santa if he wants a cookie instantly moves between the up and down positions as the shot perspectives cut.


Continuity mistake: As Scott and Tracy converse before dinner in the restaurant, a plate with a butter knife on it moves back and forth from nearer to Tracy to nearer to Scott as the scene cuts.


Continuity mistake: During Scott and Tracy's dinner date, Scott's right hand instantly alternates being on the table to off as the scene cuts to different views.


Continuity mistake: After Bernard is finished giving his speech to the elves about the new Santa, the elves standing behind him turn and disperse twice.


Continuity mistake: When Curtis is talking to the toy Santa about needing to read the book because it is the key to being Santa, the toy Santa's magnifying glass is looking down on the open book but when he says "right!", he's looking up at Curtis and Bernard through the magnifying glass.

Continuity mistake: When Bernard and Curtis are arguing, just after they had been covered in tinsel, Bernard still has some in his hair. In the next shot, it's gone. Then it comes back in the following shot.

Bernard: Curtis, you're 900 years old. Grow up.

Question: At the meeting, what did Mother Nature mean when she said "Don't mess with me Santa. I'm pre-el niño." or something like that. What does pre-el niño mean and why did she think Santa was messing with her?

Answer: By "pre-El Niño", she meant what to a mortal woman would be pre-menstrual. El Niño is "an oscillation of the ocean-atmosphere system in the tropical Pacific having important consequences for weather around the globe. Among these consequences are increased rainfall across the southern tier of the US and in Peru, which has caused destructive flooding, and drought in the West Pacific, sometimes associated with devastating brush fires in Australia."

Jeff Swanson

So she was saying she's PMSing?

Yep, that's exactly what she's saying.


Answer: "El Niño" means "the child" so she probably meant to say "don't mess with me, I've been here since Jesus".

El Niño in the context of the line is referring to the weather event in the Pacific Ocean.
