Storyline

Single dad and radio DJ Rashon "Rush" Williams (Romany Malco) loses his job right as his four entitled kids share their pricey Christmas lists. To keep Rush on the air in Pittsburgh, his producer and aunt plan to help him buy another station - if the Williams family can downsize fast and embrace a simpler life. In this heartwarming film, a loving father reconnects with his children when they all learn that true joy comes from who you have, not what you have. Written by Netflix

Awful awful awful unwatchable tripe
1 December 2019 | by chrisrowexxxSee all my reviews

Problem with this kinda storyline is you have to care about the characters, bar the dead wife bit they are all just awful, jokes about 6 year old twins demanding stuff at knifepoint, an egotistical son who you could never root for, a mother in law as charismatically challenged as a shoe and a self centred selfish daughter, what a family. Then the dad who felt like an unfunny arrogant version of mike from my wife and kids was the worst, ignorant, arrogant and just plain irritating. Roxy was good but not enough to save this.

I struggled to the end but felt nothing, no warmth no nothing, a week after the masterpiece of klaus and let it snow which was fantastic it's back to cheap, stereotypical rubbish from Netflix.

I feel as well in 2019 they don't help by portraying black people in such a way. The attitudes, ghetto talk and stuff just feels dated.

Really unenjoyable from minute one. Beyond terrible acting and the worst kinda people you can't feel remotely sorry for.
