A not so happy Christmas for those who tune in
4 December 2002 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

Here's a film that might have been more at home in the 1930's or 40's, but even then, I don't see who would find it enjoyable. The entire film had a feeling of wrongness.

I don't dislike Red Skelton, but his performance (along with those of the rest of the cast) is awful. Nothing funny happens. A few scenes attempt to be heartwarming, but it's not like they're shooting for any depth or originality. The musical numbers felt completely out of place (like most of the scenes in the film).

In the end, this film left me wondering why I'd just sat through it. The first few minutes started the boring experience that was the entire film. Thankfully, it wasn't a full-length feature film!

For those who are tempted to watch this turkey, I'd say you'd find your holidays a bit brighter if you didn't.
