First the ground rules. If you say too many stupid things, I'll have to slug you. If you say anything nasty about Jake, I'll have to slug you. If you try to feel me up, I'll have to slug you. If you make me listen to any sexist, racist, or homophobic jokes, I'm gonna have to slug you. And finally, I might just have to slug you from time to time to simply because I find the prospect of driving across the country with you incredibly stressful!

Since being home for Christmas is the best present, why can't it be the only present you have to buy your family?
Even better, why can't there be a bribe involved like the one in this comedy?
When his father (Gary Cole) entices him home for the holidays with a Porsche, Jake (Jonathan Taylor Thomas) and his girlfriend Allie (Jessica Biel) trade in their tickets to Mexico for ones to NYC.
But unforeseeable forces separate them: Jake is spirited away on a hitchhiking adventure through the desert dressed as Santa Claus, while Allie is escorted to New York by Jake's nemesis (Adam LaVorgna).
On the road, Jake realizes that all of his strained relationships need repairing.
Surprisingly heartfelt, I'll Be Home For Christmas is a zany road movie to a fault. However, the travel obstacles faced by Jake are somewhat relatable.
Incidentally, most Christmas visitors come bearing gifts of influenza. (Yellow Light)
