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 carry the competition for the best Christmas decorations to extremes.

This movie dose have small back story to as 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.

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

This movie dose have some really funny moments in this movie, there also the teen love things going on, which seem little to 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 like 70's.

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