A new Christmas Classic
12 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this, yes, it does have ups and downs--sometimes it seems that all is not going well but that is part of the fun! It reminds me a bit of "The Ref"---could some of the same people be involved {behind the scenes}? It concerns a modern, up to date family, who feel that they would like to get more out of their Christmas celebration with a little less work, but they are very short of free time.

I hope to get a copy of it so I an play it whenever I want to! I think it is a lot of fun but be sure to watch it all the way to the end,I think you who commented that you found it "depressing" quit too soon.

I am eager to see it again, and am recommending it to all my friends.

Please give it a try!
