Fred Claus – December’s English Film of the Month

Fred Claus

A nice seasonal one this. Fred Claus, Santa’s bitter older brother, is forced to move to the North Pole. Fred couldn’t live up to his older brother’s example, and so became the complete opposite. Eventually his bad behaviour catches up with him and he is sent to jail. His only recourse is to turn to his brother. Over Mrs. Claus’ objections, Nicholas agrees to help his brother on one condition: that he come to the North Pole and earn the money he needs by working in Santa’s Toy Shop. The trouble is that Fred isn’t exactly elf material and cut out for creating toys and spreading good cheer. With Christmas fast approaching, Fred could jeopardize the jolliest holiday of the year and ruin Christmas for everyone!
