The film is set on Christmas Eve, and at last reveals the answer to every child's question: "So how does SantaClaus deliver all those presents in one night?" It is thanks to Santa's ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. It also turns out that being Santa Claus is an inheritable position, passed from father to son. Except this time, there are ''two'' sons who are prospective Santas: Arthur, whose heart is in the right place but is a bumbler, and his brother Steve, who is extremely efficient but more serious. Their father Malcolm, the current Santa, is little more than a figurehead who isn't familiar with how anything in his company works, and is blissfully unaware of the brothers' rivalry. When one out of the 2 billion presents is accidentally not delivered, it's up to Arthur to complete the mission - with a little help from his grandfather (the previous Santa Claus) and a plucky female elf named Bryony - before Christmas morning dawns and a child's heart breaks. This must be done, of course, without being discovered by the rest of the world. Naturally, [[HilarityEnsues this turns out to be much harder than it sounds]].

* ChristmasElves: Of course. Rather more militaristic than standard-issue, though, and with an extremely complex rank system. They specialize in covert ops. Each and every one is devoted to the notion that all children deserve and ''must'' have a Happy Christmas. It borders on fanatical. [[spoiler: This becomes a problem when Steve suggests that just maybe a single child doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, triggering a mass freak-out that almost results in the entire North Pole being destroyed.]]

* [[AllAnimalsAreDogs All Reindeer Are Dogs]]

to:

* [[AllAnimalsAreDogs All Reindeer Are Dogs]]AllAnimalsAreDogs: Grandsanta's old pet reindeer acts much more like a dog, including wagging his tail and panting with his tongue out (though some species of deer do actually wag their tails). Averted with the other reindeer who pull the old sleigh, who act more or less like reindeer do in real life.



* ChekhovsGunman: Grandsanta's pet reindeer sits in the back of the sleigh like a lump doing nothing the whole movie, right? Well, until [[spoiler: all the others have gone missing and he manages to pull Eve through the final stretch.]]
