I love the show and was looking forward to seeing the Christmas movie after watching previews for almost two months. But OMG what a disappointment. Terrible writing and boring unoriginal story, but the biggest problem was it just wasn't funny, like the series is. The few semi funny moments were in the previews, so obviously they weren't fresh. The mom who is usually over the top anyway was a total train wreck, The grandma was someone you'd like punch in the face and then kick her while she's down. It's like a Griswold movie gone bad. After about 70 minutes I finally walked away in total disinterest while my wife and kids fell asleep, so I don't know how it ended nor do I care. Yeah I'm sure it ends on a positive note, but still no ending could make up for the 70+ minutes of pure garbage I watched. Such a disappointment...
I have no idea if it was the same writers who do the series or what but this movie really hurt the show which is one of my favorite family comedies. Really too bad. 1 out of 10
