"Christmas Eve" is the dramatic, comedic story of six different groups of New Yorkers who get stuck inside elevators overnight on Christmas Eve. With nowhere to go and no one to interact with but each other, all of them are transformed by the events of their long night together.Written by

It just tries way too hard....
This movie is not terrible but it is almost uncomfortable to watch because of the slight hint of "fakiness" and melodrama in the writing and acting. You know those people who aren't exactly offensive but you are embarrassed for their insecure and way not clever one liners? Or the guy that tries to be slick but everyone can see right through him but he is not exactly a jerk? This is this movie. It has all the typical, (yawn), hallmarks of trying to be original and witty. It is just not that original at all. I recommend you just catch it on HBO next year when you are bored.
There are a few characters that are a bit amusing, but most are beyond cliché and even just stupid and annoying.
