Last Christmas I decided to check out a number of Christmas films I had not seen before and this was one of the selection of films I chose. Having read Skipping Christmas by John Grisham which I really enjoyed I was concerned how the film adaptation would work out but having seen that the cast seemed like they would work in this style of film I was hopeful it would be good. For me this film is OK but doesn't live up to the book and isn't a film I'd consider a classic that will be in my Christmas films selection moving forward.

One of the best Christmas movies
Verified purchase
I'm not sure why this movie was critically panned. Sure, it's not a masterpeice of cinema, but what Christmas movie is? It's pretty funny: in the lighthearted family-friendly way you'd expect, fairly warming and has a decent cast. For me, this movie is up there with 'Jingle all the Way' and 'The Santa Clause'. I mean, come on- it's got Tim Allen and Dan Akroyd!

Two stars for the good acting. None for the comedy. It was dreadful. Too far-fetched. Neighbours' behaviour ridiculous. We cringed all the way through the 50 minutes we watched it. Finally all agreed to ditch it. Couldn't bear another thing going wrong. So stressful! Spoiled a Christmas evening to be honest. Big shame.

A fun family-friendly Christmas film...
Verified purchase
..not as brilliantly side-achingly funny as National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, but still a good one to add to the annual holiday viewing pile. Closer to home, also try: "The Goes Wrong Show" series of 2019/20 BBC skits and the impossible to find Peter Pan Goes Wrong.

To me, very funny
Verified purchase
Has to be one of my top 10 comedies. Great casting and directing. I think it was based on a short story by John Grisham called Skipping Christmas (apologies if I've got any of that wrong off the top of my head but it's been a while since I read it - read that too if you can)

Mediocre but worth it for the discounted price
Verified purchase
Got this at a discounted price so it was only about 2 quid. That's about what it's worth considering the scope -- higher budget than a lifetime movie but much less charm than something like Home Alone. A servicable xmas movie you can stick on in the background while making Christmas lunch or put on to entertain your young teens -- probably not really suitable for younger kids and not nearly interesting enough for adults

Really Funny! A Christmas Family Favourite Movie!
Verified purchase
It was SO funny, my whole family really enjoyed it. Jamie Lee Curtis is so talented, she is able to convincingly make a comedy like this, and then go on to, just as convincingly, make a really scary horror movie like Halloween! Brilliant 😃
