I love Christmas carols, don't you? Just give me a chorus of 'Joy to the World' and I'm as mad as a hatter!

I've read all of the other reviews and i believe in order to enjoy the movie it has to be for the right audience. I'm sorry for those of you who watched it and were disappointed because your idea of a college roadtrip is girls and booze. I'm about to go to college this fall and it hit so close to home. This was a great movie and me and my mom were both laughing. I was quite surprised that a Disney movie could have so much meaning for those of us who are in that part of life while also providing a clean movie for the entire family. If the critics tell you it was bad and if that's what you base whether you will go see the movie or not then don't go! You don't have to write horrible reviews so that others who may take something away from the movie may not go.
