My second movie (2nd Dec 2007) this Christmas.
A movie that was ripped to shreds like Christmas paper on Christmas morning by the critics. They would have you thinking this movie was a lump of coal... Oh how wrong they are because this movie is a christmas cracker.
I can see why people would hate this movie, if you hate Ben Affleck (and a lot of people do) then this movie is not for you so move along... Still here? Ok then let's continue.
I picked this movie up as a blind buy 2 years ago on DVD cheap. I really was not expecting much, but this turned out to be as enjoyable for me as Christmas Vacation. Maybe that was a one off, so this year I watched it again and I still think the same. This movie is bloody ace... There I said it. It's ace, so there you bunch of Bahhumbugs.
Very funny, very christmassy and very feelgood... It just hits all the right notes with me and that's why I'm going to give this movie 5 stars.. Yep you read that correct. 5!!!! Stick that in your Christmas pipe and smoke it Surviving Christmas haters.
Oh and Christina Applegate.. So that's 6 stars out of 5 then ;)
