Holly is not looking forward to Xmas. Her brother has a wife and kids to bring to their parents' house. She hasn't had a boyfriend since Ted.

Goofs

In the scene when Doug (Ryan) and Ted play football and fight, there are green leaves on the trees. That is supposed to be during the Christmas/new years season. All the leaves should have been gone. Also, later on in the movie, he is driving around in a convertible with the top down when there is snow all over. See more »
