Ho, Ho, Hopeless
11 November 2012 | by (Staten Island, NY) – See all my reviews

Tepid Christmas tale is abhorrently unfunny, terribly corny, and should have never been made. Whoever approved this script should be washing cars for a living instead of writing screenplays. There's the dysfunctional family, the unrealistic plot, and the desire to make Christmas BETTER by having everyone screw up, act stupid, and hate each other...until the end that is. At first, I thought this was a Hallmark movie,but even they wouldn't go this far with one of their movies. Look, taste is subjective. I'm sure some people will like this movie. That's fine. THEY can watch it... I'll stick to the classics. Hey, I don't even like A Christmas Story, with "Ralphie" and his BB Gun, but understand how people could like THAT; it does have some cute elements, but this...this is Ho, Ho, Horrible!
