The Santa Clause

Other mistake: Near the beginning, Scott and Charlie are flying in the sleigh down a road next to a truck. During the entire scene, the truck driver is constantly jerking the wheel to the right and left yet the truck remains in a perfectly straight course.

Other mistake: When Santa falls off Scott Calvin's roof, he slides in a straight trajectory that lines up just off center of the front door, meaning Santa should have fallen smack down on the snowless concrete walkway, not a few feet over onto the snow-covered lawn.

Other mistake: A Federal Express driver delivers hundreds of boxes to Scott Calvin. They contain the names of all the children in the world. Scott opens a box and picks up the top page and begins reading the names. The second page in the box is identical.

Revealing mistake: When Tim Allen startles Santa Clause and he falls off of the roof, Santa's foot kicks up a blanket that was used to look like some snow on the roof. (00:14:10)

More quotes from The Santa Clause

Trivia: Not a mistake, but another elf sighting within the movie. In the Parent's Day scene in Charlie's classroom, watch the boy sitting directly behind Charlie in the blue shirt. When Charlie walks back to his desk to retrieve his glass ball to show everyone, you can see the boy's pointed ears. Another note of interest is when Charlie says "my Dad is Santa Claus" and it cuts to a wide shot showing all of the kids, this kid is the only one not laughing.
