It gets off to a grating start, but this slight comedy eventually finds its feet and delivers a holiday-themed package made up in equal parts of mild laughs and sweet-as-sweet-can-be sentiment.

Arrogance gives way to humility, making this an appropriate, if thoroughly cliched, Christmas morality tale that's sugar-coated with an attractive cast spouting sitcom-quality dialogue.

Thomas has a natural screen presence and he never sheds the instinctual wit that made him a household name.

Like a big box of holiday chocolates: There's a lot of variety, and though the quality is a bit uneven, there's enough tasty tidbits to satisfy most everyone in the family.

Silly, light and ever so slightly hip, Christmas movie's a delight!

Nothing that occurred in it was earthshaking or shocking or particularly inventive, but it was well-done, all the same, and I really did like it.

None of the cast comes off well, but they have little to work with, since the dialogue sounds like it was made up on the spot and performed without rehearsal.

It's the cinematic equivalent of a flavored rice cake -- palatable while you're chewing and completely forgotten 10 minutes later.
