About Fred Claus

'Tis the season for more over-hyped holiday films. Here, Santa Claus (Paul Giamatti) has an estranged older brother Fred (Vince Vaughn) who needs money. So, being Santa, he generously agrees to help if Fred works for him at the North Pole. The film takes a swipe at cheesy satirical hysteria and old-fashioned Christmas magic, but neither works. Vaughn's easygoing charm keeps this from becoming a total mess, but Giamatti's Santa is no more convincing than the one at your local grotto.
