Yeah, this is a cash grab sequel.

Movies gives us nothing new and just rehasing things we've already seen a million times before in other Christmas movies.

Didn't need to be made but knowing how Netflix is, they're probably make another one in 2 years.

Far from how good the first one is. Barely worth watching once if you're bored with nothing else to do.

Also, batteries don't go completely bad when they 'expire', they just won't be 'guaranteed' to have full amount of juice. No need to spread bad info to everyone.

This isn’t a patch on the first one, but as long as Netflix keeps making films starring Kurt Russell as Santa, I’ll happily keep watching them.

dissaponting sequel to a suprise Original Christmas movie. Russel and hawn are great but this movie is lacking in all departments.

The second Christmas Chronicles offers more of what the first film did - a sexy Kurt Russell Santa Claus, a random musical number, Troll-ish CG elves, and on-the-nose lessons about the spirit of Christmas - but inverses its paradigm. Instead of magical Santa crashing into the kids' (our) world, the kids are taken on an adventure into Santa's, with more opportunity for myth-building, (sadly) more elves than you shake a candy cane at, and (most happily) a strong role for Goldie Hawn's Mrs. Claus. It's fluff and it's not always well gauged tonally, but it amusing, unchallenging, even heartfelt fluff. Personally, I was there for the Clauses, and that's where I got my chuckles and feels. Otherwise, not sure Chris Columbus has much control over the material, making the characters over-explain everything one minute, laying in some fun background jokes and movie references flying under the radar the next, a tour of Santa's Village that's pointedly for the kiddies, then violence that will give them nightmares (you do NOT go after the reindeer!). Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) plays the villain, of course a teenager who has lost the spirit of Christmas (with a twist), and ultimately, this one's about reconstituted families and as usual, what's really important during the Holiday season - like putting your kid brother's eye out with a nerf pellet (cough, cough, I'm kidding, don't follow that lesson).
