A terrific cast can't save this rather silly attempt at British seaside hotel humour where dysfunctional guests and moronic staff band together involuntarily to make the life of the acting manager a somewhat less than enjoyable challenge.
That aside, there are a couple of amusing moments - but not enough - and Warren Clarke and Anna Chancellor are excellent in spite of being dragged down by a poor script depending on good actors to carry it along.
If you really are stuck at home one night with no hope of doing anything else, then Christmas at the Riviera will prepare you for a good night's sleep. 5/10
