Quotes

Pete Kidder: Does everyone get grumpy when they become a grandpa?
Grandpa: Well, you just don't get grumpy. You gotta work at it. Takes time, like makin' a fine wine. You gotta bottle it up, let it sit for a couple of decades, and then - oh, boy - then you can uncork some vintage grumps, some DOWNTOWN grumps.

This generation's Scrooged
14 December 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Family safe - no bad language or encouragement to lie, cheat, steal, or mock This is one Christmas movie that doesn't need fake snow (although there's enough of that too). Partly filmed in Ontario, Canada, on the shores of the Great Lakes, it's got plenty of the seasonal white stuff around in all the outdoor shots. The actors don't look too hot in their heavy winter clothing, and their breath sometimes frosts quite naturally. It's refreshing.

Zachary (Wimpy Kid) Gordon doesn't quite have the comedy chops of Bill Murray, but he's believable and sweet as a teen caught up in his own family's version of the day that keeps repeating until he gets it right. He's supported by some strong Canadian talent - Molly Parker as his overworked mom and Peter DaCunha as his too-perfect little brother

  • as well as Americans recognizable from a good range of decent


television. Bruce Dern gives a solid performance as grouchy Grandpa.

Some slapstick and pratfalls but a lot of the humour is sweet rather than mocking. This is a series of small stories framed by, rather than tightly focusing on, Pete gaining maturity enough to see what he truly does want most for Christmas.
