Dishevelled mayhem and one joke
8 December 2017 | by chumgriffinSee all my reviews

I was expecting this movie to be a comedy and I think the movie did try a joke that worked about the halfway mark. Then it drifted into drama of a sort mixed with action of a sort. A really woeful sort it turns out. This movie script would not be greenlit by anyone with an ounce of insight and foresight . It is very apparent that product placement paid for this movie. Shame on you ben and jerrys. This film did affect me emotionally on one level, I actually felt sorry for Tim Allen, so that's the only plus really. Finally, The Christmas in the title is probably in the title because the film is released around Christmas and the film makers want you to think,, Oh,, a Christmas film! Nothing to cheer you up here at all. Avoid watching and clean your toilets instead,, more pleasure to be had I reckon.
