Storyline

Joy Robertson's two sons will both be off to college next year, so she wants to make this "the best Christmas ever." Joy is feeling unappreciated, however, since her husband and sons are preoccupied with their own concerns, and providing no assistance with the many Christmas preparations, while still expecting Mom to handle all the arrangements for hubby's office party and parties for her sons' friends, as well. Inspired by a grocery workers' strike in town, Joy decides to follow suit, and goes "on strike for Christmas." Written by DVD-TCMjunkie

Some funny moments - appreciate the homemaker
27 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a light and quite amusing family comedy. The first two thirds of this movie is quite fun and entertaining. Haven't really seen a movie where the men try to cook and mess up and it's quite laugh out loud funny.

Daphne Zuniga looks quite young for her age and is pleasing to watch - always wondered why she didn't get more roles. David Sutcliffe looks a bit young to be a father of teens. The later part kind of gets corny but it's a good movie for families with just sons and no daughters to watch (or daughters who don't help their moms). Watch it and appreciate mom a bit more.
