Surviving Christmas

2006-03-30 12:49


Facing another Christmas alone, high flying advertising executive Drew Latham (Ben Affleck) decides to go back to his idyllic childhood home to spend the holidays with family. There is, however, one problem: the people living there now are not Drew's family.

Nevertheless, Drew has his mind set on an old-fashioned family Christmas, and the fact that the "family" in question, the Valcos, are complete strangers, isn't about to put a crimp in his plans. Offering them $250,000, Drew bribes his newfound "parents" (James Gandolfini and Catherine O'Hara) to let him spend Christmas in their home, pretending to be part of the family.

What the critics are saying:

"Be warned: this half-baked Christmas turkey will cause severe indigestion."
- Stella Papamichael, BBCi Film

"As light, fluffy, cockle-warming holiday entertainment, this thing is pretty sweet."
- Allison Benedikt, Chicago Tribune

"Gandolfini and O'Hara are so gritty and wryly burned-out together that you want to express-mail them to another movie in time for next Christmas."
- Gene Seymour, Newsday

Despite some really funny lines and solid performances from the rest of the cast, Ben Affleck drags this whole film down with incessant overacting and general obnoxiousness. If you can stand to watch him, then you'll probably have some fun.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

2016-10-14 07:38

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
