The Santa Clause

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)

Regulus

Continuity mistake: After giving Scott his business card, Neal puts his wallet in his pocket twice.

Revealing mistake: When Tim Allen is looking at the reindeer, one reindeer's ear moves. At this point you can see the metal robot in the base of the ear.

Trivia: Another Elf sighting is when Calvin and Charlie are first entering the dining room at Denny's - an Elf boy is putting on his coat to their left (our right). (00:08:50)

Trivia: Not a mistake, but another elf sighting within the movie. In the Parent's Day scene in Charlie's classroom, watch the boy sitting directly behind Charlie in the blue shirt. When Charlie walks back to his desk to retrieve his glass ball to show everyone, you can see the boy's pointed ears. Another note of interest is when Charlie says "my Dad is Santa Claus" and it cuts to a wide shot showing all of the kids, this kid is the only one not laughing.

Trivia: Another place to spot an elf is in the beginning when the children are looking through the toy store window. The next place to see elves is when Tim Allen gets arrested and there is a crowd around the house. If you look carefully, you can see that some of the children are actually elves.

More quotes from The Santa Clause

Question: Why did Charlie not want to eat at Denny's?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Even though Charlie did not want to stay with his Dad for Christmas Eve, he did want to stay at home with a family member, fragmented as it was. Eating Christmas Eve dinner at a Denny's restaurant was not his idea of a Christmas dinner at home with family.

Question: Why does Neil try to convince Charlie that there is no Santa?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Because Neil thinks Charlie is old enough now that he should no longer believe in fantasy figures like Santa Claus.
