Philip runs a crisis hotline with Catherine and Mrs Munchnik. That's the easy part, now it gets tricky... Stanley loves evicting people and he evicts Philip. Philip loves helping people and he is loved by Catherine. Catherine is loved by Louie who loves writing songs. Chris loves dancing to songs and loves to wear large dresses. Gracie also loves to wear large dresses because she's pregnant. She loves the baby's father, Felix, who loves to paint. That just leaves Mrs. Munchnik who hasn't been loved by anybody in a very long time.Written by

Felix slips the suspender onto his left arm once, then again when the shot changes, when he puts the Santa suit back on in the bathroom. See more »
My psychiatrist thinks we should break up.
What? I didn't know you were going to a psychiatrist.
Well I'm not actually going to one. I've been dating one for four months.
This is so sudden!
I didn't want to tell you this over the phone, I really wanted to fax you. But you don't even *have* a fax!

This quirky movie has become a family favorite of ours since it was released. Obviously not Oscar material, but definitely not to be panned as badly as some have done. Norah Ephrom has created a very clever and funny script from the original French play. Dark humor, sure, but time has toned it down in relation to the Bad Santa, Scrooged, etc. that have entered the Christmas move genre. I was always amazed that this movie was NEVER in the Christmas Holiday bins at Best Buy until this past year. Perhaps now it will enter the sub-culture consciousness, almost like a Christmas Story (but without the 24-hour marathon). If you haven't seen this movie, give it a chance. Adam Sandler's "Chris" song should at least bring a smile.
