Optometrist Steve Finch loves those Christmas traditions he has set up with his family and his town. As such, he has a schedule of activities for his family starting on December 1st, and is the official unofficial consultant for anything Christmas related in his town of Cloverdale, Massachusetts. During the Christmas season, the Halls move in to the house across the street from the Finch's. The Halls in general are different in outlook and temperament than the Finches. Unlike Steve, Buddy Hall scams his way through life and never follows through with anything he starts. While Kelly Finch and Tia Hall - Steve's wife and Buddy's wife respectively - and their children begin friendships based largely on those differences, Steve and Buddy butt heads based on those differences. It begins with Buddy striving to have his house seen from outer space by decorating it as lavishly and brightly as possible. One of the results of Buddy's task his that he becomes the new go to guy for anything ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

When Steve Finch crosses the street to talk to Buddy Hall outside the hardware store, he raises his collar around his neck. Slightly further on in the scene, when the two are in front of the tree, he places his hands in his pockets. The two then walk back to Hall's pickup, at which point Finch's collar is down, and returns to being up when they finish walking. At no time does Finch remove his hands from his pockets. See more »

Not Worth Seeing
23 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While this movie did offer a few short laughs, I really did not find it very funny. Many of the supposedly funny moments were simply too predictable. And those that weren't predictable, just were not funny. Throughout the film, I wondered whether anyone would think these scenes were actually considered comedy. The plot was also a little too thin to make the movie interesting and way too thin for a Christmas movie. I got to the point where I didn't really care what happened to the two families. I think that the plot was so thin, it was difficult for the actors to feel the emotions they were trying to portray. Overall, I was very disappointed.
