Critic Reviews for Noel
One of those unpleasant fiascoes meant to lodge a lump in the throat at Christmas, but it only ends up making you want to bludgeon the elves with their own toy-shop hammers.
The kind of sappy, sadness-turns- to-gladness holiday movie that shows up on cable TV this time of year.
Palminteri draws some very good performances from his cast -- only to pile on a lot of shameless heart-tugging on top of a contrived script about five New Yorkers facing Christmas Eve alone.
The mawkishness meter is turned up full blast by the time Williams, wearing the hangdog expression he saves for maudlin dramas, shows up out of nowhere as a former priest to save an unhappy Sarandon from jumping into the East River.
Audience Reviews for Noel
A great Christmas Movie, One for adult as younger children just wouldn't understand. It shows the lives of 5 different people and how in this story they mingle together to form an outstanding story with a tear jerker ending. Rose was great along with the rough and rowdy cop. 5 stars
I never thought I would ever watch a beautifull like Noel Movie DIRECTED BY CHAZZ PALMINTERI!
A Movie focuses five lives with different problems on christmas eve.
OK, I'm a sucker for this sort of intertwined film where you need watch the whole movie to figure out which boyfriend happens to be the son of the strange bartender, etc. and how everyone survives Christmas Day.
