While this is no Christmas cracker it does have its moments, which are satisfying for Christmas movie fanatics and those who think its sometimes important to make fun of a genre.
The Snow Report
This movie has a scene were fake snow is actually made and used, this theme of self reflection of Christmas movies is actually quite fun.
There is a bad Santa, however an Elf appears to operate on behalf of Santa at key moments in the movie.
Baubles, Lights and Tinsel
There is a dressing the tree moment in the film as well as plenty of decorations. Though it would be nice to see some close up decoration shots.
Will It Make Me Cry?
This movie features no moments of peril and the silliness of it all should keep those tears away.
Lots of festive music, background bells, a random guy plays silent night, on camera, on a bus and their is an actual on screen piano sing along.
Stargate Atlantis fans will see a friend.
There is a nice discussion about the ridiculousness of Christmas movies and the lack of manly Christmas movies.
