Released on November 1, 2002, the film received mixed reviews from critics and grossed $172 million worldwide on a $65 million budget. It was followed by another sequel, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, released in 2006.
Eight years have passed since Scott Calvin took on the mantle of Santa Claus and became subject to the Santa Clause. Now he has become a great Santa at the North Pole, until Head Elf Bernard and Curtis, the Keeper of the Handbook of Christmas, inform him that there is another clause – the “Mrs. Clause”.
Scott is now pressed to get married before the next Christmas Eve or the clause will be broken and he will stop being Santa forever. At the same time, Abby the Elf delivers even more distressing news: Scott’s son Charlie is on the naughty list. Scott must return to his home to search for a wife and set things right with Charlie. He brings this up when visited by the Council of Legendary Figures, consisting of Mother Nature, Father Time, Cupid, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and the Sandman. To cover for Santa’s prolonged absence, Curtis helps Scott create a life-size toy replica of Santa, much to Bernard’s horror, but he reluctantly plays along, and tells the other elves that Santa had a makeover, so they won’t question the Toy Santa’s different appearance.
Because of the impending end of his contract, Scott undergoes a “de-Santafication process” that gradually turns him back into Scott Calvin. He has a limited amount of magic to help him. Scott returns home to his former wife Laura, her husband Neal, their six-year-old daughter Lucy, and Charlie, whom Scott realizes has been vandalizing his school to get attention. He and Charlie face the ire of school principal Carol Newman when Charlie defaces the lockers.
At the North Pole, Toy Santa follows the rulebook too literally and begins to think that everyone in the world is naughty because of their small mistakes. As a result, Toy Santa takes over the North Pole using giant toy soldiers he made himself and unveils his plan to the elves to give lumps of coal to the world. Bernard exposes Toy Santa as a fraud, and Toy Santa places him under house arrest.
