Because she is marrying the man who assumed the mantle of Santa Claus last December 26, Beth's postponed wedding has to be rescheduled for Christmas Eve. Overwhelmed by selling the house she and her son share, and the prospect of the duties of Mrs. Claus, she has to call on her estranged socialite Grinch of a mother to arrange the wedding. Of course her mom has never met the fiancé nor his family, and has no inkling of his secret. This is a sequel to 2004's Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus.

  • Wonderful Christmas movie... by 9

    Christmas is my favorite time of the year mostly because of watching all of the Christmas movies that are out there. This definitely qualifies as one of my favorites. Hallmark Channel is tops on my list during the holiday season. I have always been a Crystal Bernard fan but even more so after this. She is beautiful and looks especially beautiful in this movie. Marriette Hartley was also good in her role as the rich and snobby mother. Steve Guttenberg was wonderful as well. I would like to see one more sequel to this series where it shows how life for them works out once they arrive in the North Pole. I will keep my fingers crossed for that.

    BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST ABOUT THEM.

    In this film Beth is engaged to a wonderful man named Nick. The only problem is that he assumed the mantle of Santa Claus on December 26th of the previous year when his father retired. Now she must marry him on Christmas Eve and assume the duties of Mrs. Claus. Overwhelmed, she asks her mother to help. She knows nothing of her fiancé, his family, or their secret.

    This film is lots of fun. It is not mandatory that you have seen the first film but that film (Single Santa Seeks Mrs Claus) is more entertaining.

    The cast in this works hard in this and a less talented cast would made this film a huge mess.

    Well worth watching, Family safe. I will watch it again!

  • One of my top favorites!...along with part 1. by 10

    Although this movie was made in 2005, my review is here to say that these Christmas movies (part 1 & 2) are timeless...since they continue to be enjoyable year after year!

    The talented Steve Guttenberg and talented Crystal Bernard carried the great plot so well!

    I like it because it really stays focused on Christmas...and in a delightful way...and with magic...and with no annoying characters! That is the way GOOD Christmas magic movies are supposed to be.

    The plot had a nice flow...not boring at all...all of the players were great...the lines and directing were great.

    Thankfully their dialogue was not drowned out by blaring, annoying "music" or atrocious singing...as some other Hallmark Christmas movies are noted for having.

    The only one oddity that stood out was Crystal's heavy TN accent...compared to her "mother," who had no accent and spoke ultra-refined. That didn't make any sense.

    But in such an enjoyable movie as this...always a pleasure to watch... who cares??

  • DVD Release by 10

    This movie is one of my absolute favorites. I own Single Santa seeks Mrs. Claus. I would love it is this too were released to DVD. Such a neat movie. Great acting and wonderful story Line that makes you remember what it was like to believe in Christmas. I just loved how "Santa" goes back and forth from the North Pole to the house all the time and the growing Christmas tree. It makes me laugh every time they snap their fingers. Other movies that I liked were A boyfriend for Christmas, and A Christmas Card. Both of these were also shown on the Halmark Channel. I really like a good story line that doesn't make you think too much and one that is able to incorporate comedy with drama. Hope you enjoy this too.

  • Better than the first one by 9

    I still have to leave off one star because of the constant "ho ho ho" laugh by Nick. An occasional one would have been enough. And I think that the idea of the Santa's being, well, actually "the" Santas, was carried a little far by everything they owned being red. But I loved the Christmas tree that Nick kept making bigger! Once more folks, this is a Christmas movie. It is not great film-making and it isn't (usually) going to be Oscar material. It's just a happy, enjoyable little movie that SHOULD make most people (Scrooge excepted) smile. And come on, Crystal Bernard is beautiful and talented and the guy that plays Santa is cute and lovable. Quit looking for great films and enjoy Christmas!
