A merry okay Christmas movie.
16 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Boyd Mitchler: "Look kids it's snowing". Mitch: "It might be ashes".

Boyd (Played by Joel McHale) and his family (Played Robin Williams) who are forced to spend a dreaded Christmas at his parents' house with his eccentric father that he has been avoiding for years. When he realizes that he left his son's gifts at home.

This movie has it's good, it's bad and lot of scenes that made me go "No way, I can't believe they did that". Some of the acting in this was pretty good: Joel McHale, Clark Duke and the great Robin Williams all do fantastic job in their roles. While watching this movie I go that sense of the Christmas spirit in side of me, which I always like when movies or TV shows get that sense of feeling of whatever season it's celebrating right.

This movie has it's bad like: Some of the acting in this movie wasn't all that good and the movies message about the true meaning of Christmas got lost in it's messy script and it's numbing characters. Joel McHale character in this movie was such a Jerk and a peace of work. I hated his character so much, because he was so annoying and so rude to his father, and yes I know his father abused him when he was a little kid but we never see that, even in the the flash backs when he was a little boy and his father didn't abuse him at all. At times his father seems really nice and really caring for his son, at one point he tries to his son and the son pretty much says "F'ck off!", to him.

A Merry Friggin' Christmas has it's ups and downs, but the three good actors really done carry this movie for me making it a merry Christmas indeed.
