    An entertaining but far from perfect holiday family film. The story drags on an inexplicable extra ten minutes after the resolution of the main story seemingly to round out a 90 minute runtime. There are some big laughs, but this film leaves an aftertaste of being over-rated. That being said, it is one of the few films to truly capture the feeling of being a kid at Christmas. 9 years ago

    Surprised that I liked it. Never thought I would.

    I would consider this some kind of a black comedy, on a family level. If you didn't like it, it just wasn't your type of comedy.
