Harmless, mildly entertaining and forgettable
9 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sadly this was just not good, disappointing because its one of the last movies Robin Williams gave to us. The plot is dull, rehashed and uninspired and I didn't enjoy Robin Williams character at all. He is grumpy, angry and shouting but not in a Clarke Griswold I just lost it over the Christmas lights and had a meltdown and we can all relate sort of way. Williams just seems bitter. In fact this whole family of "misfits" just yells at each other in a very unappealing way, with Candice Bergen bumbling along in the role of the mother.

Joel McHale does a decent enough job as Boyd Mitchler, a man overcompensating for his own failed childhood. When he forgets his Christmas gifts at home while visiting his parents he embarks on an 8-hour road trip with his estranged father in order to get them under the tree in time for the big day.

I did like some of the sub characters; drunken "got any brandy" Santa (Oliver Platt) and Clarke Duke as the PTSD "suffering" sidekick. Ultimately this was harmless, mildly entertaining and completely forgettable. 12/25/14
