Aladdin and The Santa Clause, on the 11th. Not a bad day. Truth is, of the modern Santa movies, I really enjoyed this version. I'm not sure they needed a 2 and 3, but that is our world today.

Just looking at the 26th, Between the remake of Flubber and the Haunted Mansion movie, I think Disney should retire this day as a Theatrical release date based on BAD LUCK. Walt's mother deserved better. 8)
