Optometrist Steve Finch loves those Christmas traditions he has set up with his family and his town. As such, he has a schedule of activities for his family starting on December 1st, and is the official unofficial consultant for anything Christmas related in his town of Cloverdale, Massachusetts. During the Christmas season, the Halls move in to the house across the street from the Finch's. The Halls in general are different in outlook and temperament than the Finches. Unlike Steve, Buddy Hall scams his way through life and never follows through with anything he starts. While Kelly Finch and Tia Hall - Steve's wife and Buddy's wife respectively - and their children begin friendships based largely on those differences, Steve and Buddy butt heads based on those differences. It begins with Buddy striving to have his house seen from outer space by decorating it as lavishly and brightly as possible.

He does so just a few feet away from a man ice fishing on that same lake with a small lodge, which would weigh nearly as much as the sleigh.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this movie. I went with a friend and we laughed hysterically during many of the scenes. I am not a big "fan" of any of the actors, but I thought it was great. There were so many funny one liners that I couldn't help but laugh! (Looks like you are smuggling some chicken nuggets in that outfit...) I liked it so much, that my husband and I have plans to see it this week! Not all movies have to have a perfect story line behind it in order for others to be able to enjoy them. It actually reminded me of people I know who do get too caught up in Christmas! We all need to slow down and spend time with family and friends. *Lighten up and just l-a-u-g-h!
