Can anyone tell me if there’s any suggestion that FC isn’t real? DS is 5 and believes wholeheartedly. As much as I loved this film as a child, I don’t want to be the one to plant a seed of doubt by watching it with him.

I haven't seen it recently but I remember one of the main plot points is the step father wants to discourage the little boy believing. I think he is also teased at school for believing in Santa.

I used to watch this constantly when I was little, it used to confuse me if the parents didn’t believe in Father Christmas who did they think provided the presents when he obviously exists?!

I think it’ll be fine because the adults end up all believing too.

I watch it every year on Christmas Eve fgrin

My little boy is 5 and LOVES this film! It doesn't confuse him and he doesn't ask any questions about why the adults don't believe! And he loves the other two films after this one always asking to watch them!

I love this film, I was only talking about it this week. I keep getting it confused with the Dudley Moore one and being very disappointed.

The premise of the film is that the adults don't believe, and talk freely about when they lost their faith. In the meanwhile, Tim Allen competes with his son's step dad over this, keeping the magic alive.

In the meanwhile a chain of events leads Tim Allen to become Santa Clause, thus the film ends on Santa is real.

This is my favourite Christmas film.
