First Look: Fred Claus


Take one part Paul Giamatti playing a befuddled old Santa Claus, add a dash of Vince Vaughn sarcasm, and finish things off by sprinkling countless little people playing elves and what do you have? The new full-length trailer for Fred Claus, which also stars Elizabeth Banks and Kevin Spacey, and was directed by David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers).

Fred (Vaughn) is the brother of jolly old Saint Nick, though he seems to lack his rotund sibling's kind spirit or work ethic. While visiting Santa, Fred wreaks havoc in the form of dancing on tables and sledding with the elves which, apparently leads The Board (there's a board overseeing Santa Claus?) to threaten to shut down Santa's village. Hmm... I wonder how this one ends?

The trailer looks a little dumb, but there is something endearing about Paul Giamatti as Santa Claus, so I'll probably see it when it opens November 9. To watch the trailer,

It's a rental, all the way. Sheesh, I hated the Break-Up! I really tried to like it but it was waaay too long and the characters were so hateful I couldn't root for either one of them. Vince is making a career out of playing schlubby, middle-aged frat boys. Sadly, he seems to be one in real life...

Buzz you're right there was something endearing about Paul as Santa. Oh I want to see. it looks like a cute fun movie. Just saw The Break Up, which i thought was funny because of Vince and I'm sure he'll have me laughing on his new movie.
