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)


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.

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: 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.

Continuity mistake: After Santa marries Carol and kisses her, he puts his right hand on Charlie's arm. In the next shot, Santa's arm is down.

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 Toy Santa sits at the desk, objects on the desk change around between shots. Most noticeably, the reading glasses (which he picks up for a moment and sets them down) are at an angle, then turned so the lenses face the camera.


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.

Neil Miller: I know you can find someone wonderful to spend the rest of your life with. Don't let the facts that you have no time, no prospects, and a paralyzingly fear of intimacy, get you down.

Trivia: When the real Santa and the fake Santa are fighting on the sleigh when the fake Santa is heading out to deliver coal to all the children, the fake Santa says something like 'You are a strange little man.'
