  • Freely mixing reality therapy, fairy tale and satire, Dobkin's film does not maintain a consistent tone. Is it a seriocomedy about brothers who need to work on unfinished business? Is it a holiday fable about a Scrooge who comes to surf the yuletide? Is it a satire in which an efficiency expert (Kevin Spacey) puts pressure on St. Nick to outsource gift allocation and distribution? show more

  • The film isn't just not funny, it is off-putting. show more

  • Fred Claus sells you something you didn't know you wanted: a Vince Vaughn Christmas movie. Vaughn is not the hook. Neither is the holiday. The script, by Dan Fogelman, is smarter than that. show more

    Was filled with action and fun and had a hillarious storyline. Every christmas I look forward to watching this wonderful family movie. The acting was great and really showed holiday spirit! I think if they made a sequel it would really stink.

    WELL, I REALLY LIKED THIS MOVIE. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH VINCE VAUGHN. IT HAD A GOOD MEANING ALONG WITH JOY AND LAUGHTER. I AM GLAD THAT I SAW THIS MOVIE, EVEN IF IT WAS AFTER CHRISTMAS.
