The holiday season means the return of wintry weather, exchanging gifts, and spending time with family and friends. Just how much you enjoy that latter tradition depends on your DNA, and for the family at the heart of "Almost Christmas," it will be a miracle if they make it out of the proceedings alive.
The comedy, which centers around the Meyers family, features the patriarch (Danny Glover) asking his loved ones for only one present this year: To get along with each other. But as we see in this clip, premiering today exclusively on Moviefone and Aol, they can't even make it through a pickup football game without some shenanigans.
Trash talking about fashion choices, inappropriate touching, showing off gymnastics moves, and some odd flirting all find their way into the proceedings. And that's before Aunt May (played by Oscar winner Mo'Nique) fires off a naughty (and NSFW) one-liner that leaves her fellow sideline spectators in stitches. Clearly, there's never a dull moment with the Meyers crew.
"Almost Christmas," which also stars Gabrielle Union, Kimberly Elise, J.B. Smoove, John Michael Higgins, Romany Malco, Omar Epps, Nicole Ari Parker, Jessie T. Usher, and DC Young Fly, hits theaters on November 11.Photo credit: Universal
