Fridge: Miracle on 34th Street

Fridge Brilliance

  • The Dutch girl that spoke Dutch? She was speaking real Dutch, the production team took the time to find a child who spoke the real language. Thus insuring the scenes believability.

Fridge Horror

  • In the 1994 remake, either Santa did a Virgin Mary routine on Dorey, or he knew exactly when she was ovulating to orchestrate a liaison so she could conceive a child. Neither option is particularly appealing.
    • Assuming she was pregnant at that time. It's possible he counted Dorey getting married on Christmas as a set-up for Susan's wish for a sibling.
    • It was heavily implied. That's enough to be horrifying.

  • In all versions, the thought that they nearly committed the REAL Santa Claus to a mental institution is horrifying.

Fridge Logic

  • Exactly how do you make martinis "double-strength"? They're pretty much all booze to begin with. All you could really do is have more of them or a bigger glass.
    • Twice as much gin relative to the other ingredients?
