The little rich boy really does look heavily medicated. Like, two-bowls-and-one-of-the-big Xanax-tablets heavily medicated. That or morphine.

The scene with the 3 "mean" kids arguing is like watching a tiny-tot version of "The Godfather."

Why is it up to Santa to fight the devil? Isn't that more Jesus' jurisdiction? Maybe an angel or something...

Holy child labor, Batman...what a chimney full of disturbing bull@#$% this was.
I expect to wake up screaming later on tonight.
Watching this before bed was a poor choice.

The reference to the short bald guy dumping the letters in the chute is about Arturo Toscanini, long time conductor of the NBC Radio Symphony Orch. from 1937-1953. Mike's line is, "I'd just like to point out that Toscanini also works at the post office."

I find it interesting that this vision of Santa Claus implies that he exploits the labor of African and "Oriental" children despite not bringing gifts to children who share their background.

Mike says Santa Klaws sounded like the Fixx, but I think they also sound vaguely like the Sisters of Mercy.

Santa both starts and ends in Mexico City, though Pedro tells us that he apparently covered Europe, Asia, and South America at some point. Without even bothering to analyze the logistics of his route, it would appear that two whole continents got skipped.

This is the harshest kids movie ever. "He's going to murder you", "Beat your brains out", "If his beard was white when you were a small girl, he'd be dead and buried by now", "The house is burning. I'm on fire", "You will starve to death and I will rule the Earth." What the hell is wrong with Mexico?

At 12:40, Santa is watching the kids from France sing. The look on his face is seriously disturbing. Like, parole violation, not allowed within 250 feet of an elementary school disturbing. TEACHER, bad touch!!!

Is it just me, or does the voice-over of Lucifer in the "Hell" scene sound incredibly similar, if not the same as, the voice of the Santa Claus actor?
0:02:46 I always laugh my ass off when I see their operator...who is "Wilbur", the guardian angel of that insane couple of painfully irritating, song-addicted newlyweds...who have somehow evaded a "real honeymoon" for several years after being married. It's in "Once Upon A Honeymoon". The guardian angel Wilbur must ensure that at long last, this married man and woman will have some proper (or improper ;-) marital intercourse in order for him to earn his wings in Heaven. Makes sense to me, but I'm getting off topic.

I can't help thinking that 99% of the problems Santa runs into in this film would never have occured if he'd just stayed on EARTH!

Y'know? Where EVERY other culture with a Santa Claus puts him?

You just HAD to be clever, didn't cha Mexico? OH A little workshop at the North Pole wasn't GOOD enough for MEXICAN Santa! No, they had to give him a freakin' gold and crystal palace in mother lovin' OUTER SPACE!! And no immortal, magical elves for THIS Santa's toy factory: Only a full staff of kidnapped, singing, multi-cultural children will do!
And to HELL with Mrs. Claus! What use was she, anyway? No, only Merlin the Wizard: Mentor of King Arthut and nearly omnipotent bender of reality is an appropriate companion for Mexico's new and improved Santa :P
