Continuity mistake: In court, the camera shows Susan to judge her reaction to the lawyer talking, and she is sitting upright in her seat. It then changes to Dori, who is sitting right next to Susan. If you look in the bottom left hand corner however, you'll see that Susan is no longer sitting upright, and is instead leaning on Dori. There would be no time however for Susan to lean on her mother in the time the camera takes to move to another shot.
Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the film, when the drunk Santa falls off the parade float, you can see a sack full of presents on the back of the float. In the next shot, when people are lifting the sleigh off him, the presents have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When drunk Santa knocks the sleigh off the float, you see the band members scatter. When the sleigh falls to the ground, there is nothing near it. In the next shot, the cymbal that clatters to the ground is right next to the sleigh, when it wasn't in the previous shot.
Kris: If you can't learn to accept ANYTHING on faith, then you are doomed for a life dominated by doubt.
Question: Is there any reason that for the re-make it was changed from Santa speaking to a little girl in Dutch to him speaking to a girl in sign language? It seemed like it would be less convincing this way, since it would not be uncommon for any department store Santa to know sign language.
