Nice, funny and Sweet movie
21 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw for first time last night,

It's bit like the movie Deck the Hall (2006)

Well this movie, neighbours who are in the competition for the best Christmas decorations, to the extremes.

This movie dose have a small back story, Bob Wallace makes sure to go all out every year on Christmas decorations, however this year new neighbours who have just moved that day, have put up there up.

When his wife force him to see the new neighbours, it turns out that the men are carrying on a rivalry that started back in high school, as they used to be Old best Friend before they fell out.

This movie dose have some really funny moments, there also the teen love things going on, which seem little too forced.

They could have done better casting in this movie as kids and teens were really wooden at times.

And the wife's early 30's, looks so much younger then husbands who looks like in his 70's.

Overall all, it's was Fun sweet movie (If you liked Deck the Hall, you might like this).
