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.

Adequate in every way and oddly subversive in spots, but that's about it.

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

The results are only slightly better than coal in your stocking.
