Critic Reviews for I'll Be Home for Christmas
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.
Too sophisticated for thumb-suckers, but far too stupid for anyone else.
Audience Reviews for I'll Be Home for Christmas
"Somewhere between L.A. and N.Y. Jake found the meaning of Christmas" I'll Be Home For Christmas is a cliche family Christmas movie. The major theme is that of most, if not all Christmas movies; it's not about where you spend it or how you spend it or what you get, it's about the family you share it with. This one gets that message across with a cross country trip along the same lines as Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Jake is going to school in California and hasn't been home for Christmas in a few years. His father wants him there though, so he tells Jake that if he's there by six o'clock on Christmas Eve, he'll give Jake the '57 Porsche. This is enough to make Jake go, but when some fellow students leave him dressed like Santa and stranded in the desert, he misses his flight and must find another way to make it to New York. As much as I dislike the movie, I'm not about to completely blast it like I probably should. Christmas movies can't be judged on the same level as other films. Most of them suck and by comparison to a lot of others, I'll Be Home For Christmas really isn't all that bad. Okay, yes it is, but it should at least entertain the little ones and send them off with a decent enough message; family is more important then material objects.
Poor with some elements added in, but if you were to take those elements out, then it would be a great film. It was well worth watching, and I recommend it! It's just fun for the whole family to watch during the holidays!
believe it or not, thats not the closest JTT's lips have been to big fuzzy ball
