Funny. No Classic But Its Worth Seeking Out
4 February 2018 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

Review Date 2/3/2018

PLEASE BEWARE OF SOME REVIEWERS THAT ONLY HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN! I HAVE DISCOVERED MANY GEMS IN MY QUEST TO SEE AS MANY " C H R I S T M A S " MOVIES AS I CAN.

Now Someone keeps reporting my reviews. I guess they are jealous because I do tell the truth. I want to point out that I never make snide remarks about actors weight or real life sexual orientation. If there acting is terrible or limited "I talk about that". If a story is bad "I will mention that" So why am I being "picked on"? IMDB? When one of my reviews gets deleted IMDB will not even tell me what someone found offensive. Well on to this review.

In this film Dr. Wallace makes sure to go all out every year on Christmas decorations so that he can have the brightest and most festive house in his neighborhood. This year, he notices that his new neighbor has put up an even brighter and more lavish display. What is worse the new neighbor is former best friend ! So the fight is on when they declare war for the best Christmas decoration display in the neighborhood.

After 5 minutes you know how it is most likely going to end but there is a few surprises along the way.

The film however works and its nice and simple. Its very family friendly. It also has "The Christmas Spirit" that is written between the lines. The film entertains and it isn't preachy.
