Walter Meyer (Danny Glover) is a retired mechanic who lost the love of his life almost a year ago. For the holidays, he invites his now grown children and their families to his house (where they all grew up) for a traditional celebration. Walter soon realizes that if his bickering children and the rest of the family can spend five days together under the same roof, it will truly be a Christmas miracle.
The second collaboration between Omar Epps and Nadej Kyla Bailey who played siblings on the shortlived series Resurrection (2014). See more »
Four days before Christmas, we see the family attending a morning church service. We know the year is 2016 (indicated earlier in the movie), so we know the date is December 21, 2016. This was a Wednesday. It seems highly unlikely that there would be a Wednesday morning church service. See more »

I love IMDb and find the user reviews to be very informative reading. I wouldn't consider myself a "power user" however so have never written one....until now.
I do so to tell you how god damn awful this film is. The acting is lame and the plot is highly unoriginal. My girlfriend and I successfully predicted some of the lines just as they were about to be delivered. It's a cross between all the worst parts of The Cosby Show and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation while containing none of their virtues. Stick to the latter if you're looking for some xmas feel-good light entertainment. It's shocking how a director like this could demand such a large budget (17 million was it?).
Avoid this at all costs!
