Sure, Santa Claus is super busy on Christmas Eve, but what does he do the rest of the year? Apparently, he makes movies. IMDb lists him as a character in more than 800 movies and TV shows. How, then, to rate all the cinematic St. Nicks from best to worst? We narrowed the list down to 21 Santas who had a prominent role in big-screen features. Some are the real Father Christmas, some are shopping mall impostors. Some are the stars of their movie, some are subordinate Clauses. Some are naughty, some are nice. And some are stellar in movies that are otherwise lumps of cinematic coal, while others offer moments of tough sledding in otherwise fine films. Read on to see if you agree with our list. Check it twice.
