Storyline

The Buckley family, consisting of two parents, four pre-pubescent brothers and a baby on the way, deals with the antics of its young sons and their struggles with the Hagbart family during the Christmas season. Actions center on Matthew, the second eldest son, who grows up to be a writer and narrates the action from fifteen years in future. The Buckleys devote themselves to "elving," selecting a family on hard times who could use a bit of anonymous gift-giving (usually food) to see them through. 1986 was a memorable year as the "elved" family turned out to be the Hagbarts, whose eldest son, Finn (held back a year and bigger than most of his classmates), bullied all at school with particular focus on Matthew. With charity comes insight. Written by Anonymous/revised by statmanjeff

Omg the worst movie I've ever seen
31 December 2018 | by dillanvanSee all my reviews

The entire story was boring and was extremely cringey. There are many many problems with this movie, for starters the bad acting

The acting in this movie was just horrible. It seriously felt like a 3rd grade play. Everything was just so boring and creepy

Another problem with this film was how it was supposed to look like the 1980s. They seriously did not try at all to make it look like it was in a different time period. This was one of the worst parts of the movie

All the actors make me cringe so hard. Literally everything I heard the actors say made me smh so hard. Ugh
