Great comedy movie with cute Jewish men but not suitable for kids.
25 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

Fourteen years prior, Ethan Miller's (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) parents passed away on Christmas Eve. His two best friends, Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie), have been with him in support on this night by having an annual tradition of going out on Christmas Eve. However, because Isaac is going to be a father and Chris has become famous, all three decide to have one last Christmas Eve out in New York City.

I loved this movie and my little son Muhammad did,but was embarrassed by the strong sexual content since he is a child. I told him to close his eyes if he sees nudity.

This movie is great for teens and adults,but has unsuitable adult material in it which offend kids.

I am a Muslim woman and I celebrate Christmas too with my only one beloved son Muhammad.

Honestly the Jewish men were so cute and funny they really made me laugh from start to finish.

Most Muslim Community Around The World Buy Kosher Jewish Food. Me As A Secular Belly Dancer,I respect every religion and wish you all a Very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year and I Wish The Evil Of ISIS Terrorists Muslims Will End Soon & Peace Agreement With Israel & Arab Muslim Countries Will Happen In The Year 2016.
