Storyline

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.

Not bad
30 November 2020 | by brookenichole-98054See all my reviews

Almost Christmas is enjoyable. The cast is great and definitely does a wonderful job at acting as a family. The jokes were funny and the story was interesting. I loved getting to see all the different families go through difficult situations but come together as a family. It's not the best Christmas movie, but I'd say it's worth the watch.
