    May be far from perfect, but the big question is why you're sitting in a movie theater watching it instead of cuddling up at home with the remote in one hand and a steaming toddy in the other. show more

    Sappy script. Cheesy supernaturalism. Tired satire. show more

    If you're really hoping for a perfect holiday, steer clear of this stale fruitcake of a comedy. show more

    i expected more from this cast. i haven't been this dissappointed in a movie in a long time. the story was weak, the plot very predictable and it was not funny at all. the director should share some of the blame and i was surprised that terrance howard would accept this role. maybe all involved should have watched it in a movie theater and then they might have made the decision not to release it.

    This was a nice family movie. I mean it was not the best movie I agree. However it was very refreshing.
