THE ADS LOOKED LOUD, BELIGERENT and IN-YOUR-FACE CHRISTMAS-CHEERY...THE LAST-MINUTE CRITICS' SCREENINGS MADE US SUSPICIOUS...and THE REVIEWS SAY WE WERE RIGHT.

YET ANOTHER of THOSE ANNUAL ASSAULTS on OUR HOLIDAY SPIRIT, FRED CLAUS IS THIS YEAR's ANSWER to DECK THE HALLS -- A BRIGHTLY FROSTED, SUGAR-LADEN LUMP of HOLIDAY FRUITCAKE YULE DO YOURSELF a FAVOR to AVOID.

BUT DON'T TAKE OUR WORD for IT -- POST YER OWN THOUGHTS BELOW...

Richardson: "Aw...does Santa need some Cialis to wake up The Little Elf in his big red pants??"

Vince Vaughn has appeared in quite a few bad films (The Psycho remake, The Break-up, Domestic Disturbance). As much as I like him, so has Paul Giamatti (Lady in the Water, Big Fat Liar, Duets). Ditto John Michael Higgens ( Evan Almighty, The Break-Up, Fun with Dick and Jane.) Even Oscar winner Kathy Bates (Around The World in 80 days, American Outlaws, Failure to launch) has done her share of garbage. But what in the name of all that's good and holy are Miranda Richardson, and Kevin Spacey (Beyond The Sea aside) doing in this?! (I'd mention Rachel Weisz except for the fact that I liked The Fountain, The Mummy Returns, and even Constantine.) Sad part is when I first saw the trailer, I thought the movie looked pretty funny. I guess this is one of those times where they put all the good stuff in the trailer.

I can't fathom what Oscar winners like Kevin Spacey, Kathy Bates, and Rachel Weisz (and Oscar nominee Miranda Richardson) are doing in this low rate holiday film. Not for its brilliant script (which it's not) or the terrific thespian talents of Vince Vaughn, once again playing Vince Vaughn.

It's the money! Kim Cattral best summed it up. She was against the Sex and the City movie until her price increased. Can't say I blame her. And she had the balls to come out publicy and admit she's doing it for the cash.

Save your own holiday cash for a worthwhile movie instead of this one. If you take them to see this, your children will hold this film against you!

...And the kids'll probably need therapy for the next 10 years, too!  

Somewhere up North, the real Santa cannot be very happy about how Tinseltown has been abusing him for the last few years.  If no one else can, maybe HE can knock some sense into their heads...

I just got back from seeing Fred Clause. This is actually a pretty funny movie, a lot better than I thought it was going to be.

I would have to say, such bad luck for Vince Vaughn and Paul Giamatti for doing such bad films.
