Things begin with winter season wonder, Jack Frost (Martin Short) feeling as though he's the only figure in the Council of Legendary Characters without a real holiday and decides to invent Frostmas. This causes great worry among the leaders of the council, Mother Nature (Aisha Tyler) and Father Time (Peter Boyle). Meanwhile, Mrs. Claus (Elizabeth Mitchell) we discover the news that a baby Claus is on the way and set to be born on Christmas Day, but sadly, if only her parents could come to visit, maybe she'd be a little more cheerful.
"…The Escape Clause unwraps as delightfully and magically as the first Santa Clause…a film both parents and young children can enjoy together."
