BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM JUST HONEST.

This was as bad as any film can get. I applaud that the writer took a chance but the casting fails him. I think nobody in this film ever took more then 1 acting class.

In this film a man who is a snotty adman ends up losing his job after he agrees to take the fall for a faulty label. He is promised that he will get his job back as soon as "Controversy subsides". Little does he know his former boss/friend makes Mr Potter (from It's a Wonderful Life") look like a saint. Now after he loses his job he then slowly start losing everything else. His wife sticks by him and his kids are too good to be true.

After he loses his job from the a boss from hell he gets a new job for minimum wage. He then sees that his new boss that is not from hell but from "hell adjacent". What did work in this film I am still trying to figure that out. The film is family safe but if you love your family don't make them watch this.
