Wonderful film. The Fitzgerald Family Christmas truly depicts real life for a real-life family. Nothing sugar-coated here, which, in my opinion, is what makes it so great.

The Fitzgerald Family Christmas is extremely perceptive about certain angles on life in a big family. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
It's entirely sincere and genuinely not terrible. Burns knows the milieu of his suburbanized New York Irish-American characters at a bone-deep level (enough to induce powerful flashbacks in someone of my background), and the tone of regretful, tragicomic, low-key melodrama he strikes is just right.

These Fitzgeralds are loud, selfish and often maddening, but they're a loving group, and you wouldn't mind spending more time with them. Full Review

Burns has assembled such a fine cast that we leave feeling satisfied, as if we didn't get the iPad mini we wanted, but a pretty good novel instead. Full Review

This tale of a dysfunctional family whose members experience enough personal crises to fuel a dozen films is a virtual compendium of clichés, but the star's sheer likeability makes it go down as easily as a cup of eggnog. Full Review
