I'll Be Home for Christmas Reviews

September 7, 2011
This family comedy finds unearned laughs in old women and dog flatulence.

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.

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.

A Christmas turkey.

Too sophisticated for thumb-suckers, but far too stupid for anyone else.

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

Inane Christmas film has little going for it in script and character.

The film equivalent of easy listening.

I'll Be Home For Christmas is entertainment for the whole family only if your whole family is incredibly bored.

I'll Be Home for Christmas will appeal to people who fail to care if nothing good happens in a movie.

The ultimate insult to a film-goer!

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

A consistent source of chuckles.

If you've never had the urge to kick Santa Claus, this might be just the irksome misadventure into comedy that will drive you over the edge.
