Trivia

Some of Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson's characters' workout clothes are from Hudson's activewear line, Fabletics. Aniston's character also wears Lululemon. See more »

Goofs

Miranda says she was 16 years old when she gave birth to Kristin, so their age difference should be 16 years. Character ages are not specified in the film, but Julia Roberts is 23 years older than Britt Robertson, which is almost a 50% discrepancy. It's common for an actor's age not to match his/her character's age. Sometimes actors are younger that the actors playing their characters' children. See more »

Despite Reviews my Friend & I Enjoyed This Movie Tonight
30 April 2016 | by NJJoanySee all my reviews

We went for some light entertainment & knew what to expect and we were NOT DISAPPOINTED ! What do the critics expect - every movie to be a potential Academy Award nominee ? Sometimes I like serious movies, like Spotlight which I enjoyed very much & knew beforehand what I was going to see. Same with this movie; sometimes light entertainment is fine. I knew it wasn't going to be a physical comedy, I knew there were no action scenes and that was fine tonight. It's what I chose to see and we enjoyed it. I also liked Gary Marshall's other two multi-storied, holiday movies even though they were panned by the critics too. Each separate story with different casts are basically short so you're bound to like some of them. I can't see how you could dislike everyone & their story lines. Of course there are corny jokes and references to other movies --so what? Biggest thing with me was that after seeing The Boss on Tuesday, I was not offended by anything in this movie. I was extremely offended by many situations & mostly the language in The Boss. I found The Boss to be extremely offensive hearing such crude sexual references in all the dialogue filled with the F word, etc. This movie has none of that. It's not crude, offensive nor inappropriate for kids and that says a lot about Gary Marshall and his movies.
