Storyline

Murray, playing himself, trying to avoid a Hollywood figure who wants to represent the actor, who famously forgoes having a manager or agent. And somewhere in there will be rooms for Christmas carols to be sung by the actors (everyone is playing themselves) and probably more bits and pieces of holiday cheer.

Extremely Disappointing
5 December 2015 | by frankviiSee all my reviews

The description on IMDb is "Comedy, Music, Musical" and that is not correct. It would be better titled "Musical With No Real Plot". The plot that is given here is extremely misleading (Bill Murray worries no one will show up to his T.V. show due to a terrible snow-storm in New York City.). This is only how the show starts. It quickly degrades into one song after another with essentially no plot. It is the only movie (show) that I can remember turning off before it was over (I got about 3/4 of the way through). The only enjoyable thing (for me) was the opening song where Bill Murray sings. I was surprised that his voice was that good. After that, it down-slid from a story with songs into just songs (and the Bill Murray songs were nowhere as good as the opening).

It has also been described (on other sites) as a tribute/re-do of old time variety shows. It is not even close. I'm old and have seen them all (from the 1950's and on). This isn't even close.

I am a Bill Murray admirer (short of a fan). I can't recommend this to anyone unless you want to hear Bill Murray sing (which is why I gave it a 3 of 10.
