This movie is fun and very watchable in fact you can watch this most years. Obviously its not a classic but if you watch expecting to be amused it will be fine and you will also hear about the lesser know carol, the Ignorant Snowman.
The Snow Report
Loads of snow from the very start which continues on throughout the whole movie (at times its snows). The snow features heavily both as a story item and also as a backdrop. It should be notated that while there is loads of snow this cause minimal interruption of private and public transport.
There is a Santa suit.
Baubles, Lights and Tinsel
Excellent throughout, including the burning of trees and of course lights, in fact the whole movie is about how important it is not to be tacky with Christmas lights.
Will It Make Me Cry?
This movie will not make you cry unless you are sensitive to the silent scream of pine trees.
Acceptable but nothing special, until the very end and the O Holy Night sing along.
Danny DeVito spends the movie annoying Matthew Broderick.
The scene with Danny DeVito, a broken light bulb and space is quite special. As is the ET sledge moment.
