Christmas Classic
29 December 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is an instant Christmas classic!

For a little over an hour I found myself somewhere between laughing and cringing. If you remember the 80's or would have liked to - you should see this movie.

A good job by the following combined with some pretty rock solid editing made for a great film, specifically:

Mike Beaver - did an amazing job as Uncle Nick, steals the show really. Too many funny scenes to list from the tree crash to the drunk sledding

Jason Jones - was lovable as a drunken Gord Cooper and

Samantha Bee - was good as his pregnant wife

Dave Foley - although not starring in the movie, you'll see more than enough of him

Peter Keleghan - plays a hilarious (yet classy) Uncle Tim

I'd love to know where I can buy it b/c its going to be an annual movie right up there with A Christmas Story.

Loved it!
