With a title like “Becoming Santa,” Jeff Myers and Jack Sanderson’s crowd-pleasing new film sounds like a Hollywood comedy about a regular guy who takes on the role of Santa Claus.  And that’s almost what it is, minus the Hollywood part, but don’t confuse this for a Tim Allen vehicle. Instead it’s a wonderful documentary about the Christmas mascot and what it takes to represent him to kids -- sorry, I mean children -- all over the world.

We all have favorite Christmas movies that we watch every year. For me, "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas" is the most necessary. And I'll watch bits of "A Christmas Story" and "Scrooged" if they're on TV (and both are on TV a lot this time of year). Thanks to the holidays, there are a number of films we've all seen too many times. Like "Elf." Do we really need to have seen that more than we've seen any other Will Ferrell movie? But because it's a Christmas movie it gets played and seen every year at this time. And probably only at this time.
