Funny, heartwarming, but predictable., 16 November 2004
8/10

I went to a preview of this movie last night with my wife and two friends, and we loved it. It has a lot of great laughs but doesn't forget to add in the necessary heartwarming (but not too manipulative) feel-good Christmas moments.

Parts of it were reminiscent of "National Lampoons Christmas Vacation", but much less vulgar and violent.

We only had two problems with the movie. One is that parts of it were very predictable, as we were commenting on what would happen, and even coming up with the correct dialogue, before it happened on screen. The other problem is a specific scene, which involves people wearing swimwear that they're not built for.

Other than that, we highly recommend it. This is the best new Christmas movie in years!
