Gucci Santa was the only "gucci" part of this film
12 December 2018 | by GucciSantaSee all my reviews

Everyone appreciates a feel-good movie around the holidays. One that incites the Christmas spirit and is reminiscent of past holiday joy. Too bad this never happens. The Truth About Christmas is a "holiday" movie meant to exemplify the importance of honesty. When the lead character Jillian is cursed by "Gucci Santa" after lying to a child, she is forced to confront her true feelings about her environment. Although a good message, it is portrayed horribly wrong. The movie has too many subplots. *womp womp* Wishy-washy romantic tension with other characters, Jillian's sudden love for stand-up, and an undiagnosed bird fetish. These unresolved plot points accompanied by Jillian's random caveman grunts and groans, music from Target commercials, and the sad attempt at incorporating modern lingo makes this movie B to the A to the D. Would not recommend.
