'So I take it you won't be needing the standard disclaimer'

Is the reason why the disclaimer would not be needed because it would be false, ie there was deliberate resemblance to real people or events? Is it a historical film?
Or because it is obvious that the film could not refer to real people/events? Is it fantasy? Sci-fi? Is it a film in which a real historical event is given a completely different outcome?

Or because it is obvious that the film could not refer to real people/events? Obvious to some but not to others. This is a key point Is it fantasy? Sci-fi? No but the film would have to be of a particular genre Is it a film in which a real historical event is given a completely different outcome? no

Is religion relevant? If it depicts a bible story it would be pretty controversial to say that it bore no resemblance to actual events?

Would the film be horror? Drama? Comedy? Action/adventure? Thriller?

Does it deal with a subject that some people believe to be true but others don't? Like aliens? The moon landing? Would putting in the standard disclaimer mean that the filmmakers seemed to be making a definite stand on a controversial issue?

Is the part of the disclaimer that deals with events relevant? With people?

Would the film be horror? Drama? Comedy? A touch of this usually Action/adventure? Thriller? But no to the rest

Does it deal with a subject that some people believe to be true but others don't? Absolutely Like aliens? The moon landing? But no to these Would putting in the standard disclaimer mean that the filmmakers seemed to be making a definite stand on a controversial issue? It's not controversial

Is the part of the disclaimer that deals with events relevant? A wee bit With people? But more this

Christmas movies with Santa Claus? YES!

*****************Spoiler**************

I've always been meaning to check if they use the standard movie disclaimer at the end of Santa Cluas films. Well done DOCD. Happy Christmas to you all.

Andy, like yours this was a Christmas puzzle in disguise
