Not The Worst Christmas Movie in History
7 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this movie went straight for the "Christmas Story" appeal. The story line was a little cheesy and the direction was clearly not very good.

Most of the acting seemed boxed and over directed (ad lib is an amazing tool). In the scenes where the actors had some freedom, you could see real potential for some great acting, between Rick Wilder (Danny Arroyo) and Max Moogle (Anthony Robinson), and between Rick Wilder and Sally (Maggie VandenBerghe), but it seems that in most scenes, they were over directed, and not given license to let themselves act.

This was not the worst Christmas movie I have ever seen, but the director should definitely go back to film school. Give Danny Arroyo, Anthony Robinson, and Maggie VandenBerghe a chance to show their talent. They should be stars....

Finally, please stop casting Mackenzie Phillips in anything. She does not have star power.
