I was hoping Fred Claus would be a fun but maybe slightly darker and cynical Santa Claus tale than we are use too. Vince Vaughn did that quite well for the black relationship comedy The Break-Up. Unfortunately he looks to be in his all too conventional mode here. Despite the genius casting of Paul Giamatti as Santa Claus, he's just not doing it for me either. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot new about Fred Claus. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE TRAILER The movie comes from Wedding Crashes helmer David Dobkin and will be in a cinema near you this December. Looks to be a huge disappoint for me. I guess I was expecting it to be more Bad Santa-ish.
