Such a fuss, when everything we want is right in front of us the whole time!

A very pleasant adult Christmas flick and worthy of your time. Not your usual jolly Santa movie or family Christmas film, but a good couples or late night movie when the kids are tucked up in bed. This is a very pleasant Woody Allen-esque family drama (narrated at times by the great Steve Martin) which has some real intimate and dramatic moments, with comedic breaks, but the pathos eventually gives way to romance and the movie comes together with a feel good ending.
An all star cast of great actors, from John Goodman, Diane Keaton, Ed Helms and Marisa Tomei, to Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, Anthony Mackie and many more, all of whom keep this movie very real and the story, which revolves around the lives of your average extended family, as they plan for a Christmas dinner with the folks, ticking along nicely. One of those true life family dramas, with lots of serious, but also funnier moments which, being as engrossed in such movies as I tend to become, I often find it difficult to know whether to laugh or not, but then you get caught out and find yourself laughing outloud.
Goodman, Keaton and Tomei are outstanding as always, and the rest of the cast being ‘seasoned’ actors make you forget you’re watching a movie and more like a fly on the wall documentary.
Directed, filmed, lit and edited to perfection, this movie about a large family with the usual relationship difficulties, starts well, slows down a bit, but eventually picks up again and finishes in true Christmas spirit, as a tragic event brings the family together in the most unromantic of venues, culminating in forgiveness, romance and a moment of happiness together. If only we could find Christmas in our hearts all the time, then we would all realise that ‘everything we want, is right there in front of us the whole time… Merry Christmas everyone.

Give it a go!
Verified purchase
I am really surprised that so many people did not rate this movie. I really enjoyed it, so much so I have watched it 4 times over this Christmas period, and am now watching it again as i type this. I love the soundtrack which has some really lovely versions of old Christmas faves and some more unusual pieces. This movie has a Fab cast and a good story. Not a laugh out loud film or sob at the end movie but very enjoyable with great performances from the star studded cast. I enjoyed it very much and told my sister to watch it, she now also loves it and we both have the soundtrack which i am still listening to (jan 7). I would urge anyone and everyone to give it a go.

An bit of a mix, on the whole successful
Verified purchase
I can see why some of the reviews are so negative. If you are looking for "It's a Wonderful Life", it's too cynical. If you are looking for belly laughs at pratfalls it's too meaningful. If you are looking for deep meaning it's too predictable. The premise has been done before, arguably better. Yet for me personally, it all worked, helped by quietly competent performances from an all-star cast.I came with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised.

Boring
Verified purchase
Expected something different. It didn't even get to the family at the coopers until an hour into it. The separate stories were so disjointed because u couldn't tell who and how people were related. Apart from the grandpa and boys the entire family was unlikeable which means you don't care about watching what happens. I was so bored and had nothing to do so I just carried on watching.
It tries to have some deeper and meaningful plots but it didn't work for me. In the laSt 10 minutes the writers tied up the story line but it was so lazily done and unbelievable as their is no chemistry or buildup between characters seeing as they were all off and on screen separately.
A few really annoying things like the grandaughter who seems 4 years old but keeps using a profanity in a sentence and at no point do the parents or grandparents tell her off. Whatever!
Worst Christmas movie for me with absolutely no feel good factor.

Mediocre At Best
Verified purchase
Found it predictable and not particularly interesting. Ok as a Sunday afternoon watch but had we sat down to watch this on Christmas Eve for example would have found it deeply disappointing. I kept getting bored and wandering off while it was on.

It doesn't seem to be representative of any genre apart from Christmas, its not particularly comedic, thrilling, heartwarming or gripping. Most of the characters were unlikeable and void of any charm or charisma. Although it featured many good actors the plot and writing was poor and tired on every occasion. It was all totally cliched which you might expect from a Christmas film but unfortunately this lacked any of the lovely nostalgia you normally find along with the cliches.

If this wasn't based on Christmas it could have been retitled 'Meh'. Lots of better Christmas options available which are good standalone films. In summary, boring.

Light drama - not a comedy.
Verified purchase
Billed as a comedy, but certainly isn't one. A strong Christmas drama with a few light moments.

A good strong cast used perfectly. Maybe a little cliched and certainly nothing new - but it is definitely the performances that keep you watching. It's a little loose and disjointed at the beginning but it soon comes together nicely - perhaps could have gone on a little longer as you'd like to see more of the characters in the finale finding their way.

Overall a nice watch, but not necessarily the most cheery of films to view over the Christmas period.

Enjoyed this in spite of cliches
Verified purchase
I know there are loads of cliches here, but I still enjoyed this film especially the storylines between between the grandfather and the waitress and the daughter and the soldier. Each character has their own anxieties and expectations about Christmas and these collide and unravel.

Lacklustre Festive Ensemble!
Verified purchase
I absolutely love Christmas movies so was not deterred by the negative reviews for this one and gave it a whirl to embrace the festive season! This should have been great but really wasn't, not totally appalling but certainly not memorable! Even with such an incredible cast (none of whom did a bad job) they just couldn't save the script that was lacking in comedy, warmth and an actual story line. Watched to the end anyway and did smile a few times but if you are looking for anything other than something to keep you company, this is not the one for you!
