Why would we want to get tans before the cruise? I thought the idea was to get them DURING the cruise.
Look at us, we kind of look like uncooked chicken.
You look like a corpse.
And you could use some help too.

This is a fun movie one can take the entire family to. And, that in itself gives it high points for me. A surprise for me was not seeing one child in the theatre. I'd expected it to be full of children. Most were young adults. Come to think of it, I didn't see any older people either. Odd... But, the audience seemed to like it. There was quite a bit of laughter. And, everyone left with a smile on their face.
Some of the humour was a bit cheesy at times...and, a good portion of it isn't believable at all. But, it was still a fun movie to watch. Unless, of course, you're one of those that requires a lot of sex and/or violence...then, this isn't the movie for you.
The scene with the Christmas carolers gave me the urge to run out and find a group to join. I hadn't seen carolers in awhile and it brought back a ton of memories of Christmases past.
A surprisingly serious tone hit towards the end of the movie... it was sweet, and encompassed all that Christmas should be.
