Thanks to Janus Films, however, Chopra’s voice will be a much more prominent part of any future conversations about the decade in youth film. There’s an admirable perversity to casting Mel Gibson, known for his volatility both on and off screen, as Santa Claus, who in Fatman is of a piece with one of the actor’s traditional tormented tough guys. There’s a push and pull between Mary’s need for independence and her sense of filial duty, and these elements combine to make her wary of pursuing a relationship with anyone, let alone a woman from such a different background as Charlotte’s. So, to me, it was believable that this whole scene would take place.
