Almost Christmas (2016)
Critic Consensus: While far from the worst holiday dramedy audiences could hope for, Almost Christmas isn't distinctive enough to prompt a visit to the theater -- or annual yuletide viewings.

News & Interviews for Almost Christmas
Critic Reviews for Almost Christmas
The movie takes a few calamitous turns at its climax, dangerously approaching broad slapstick and villainizing a character we've come to love. But mainly, it's a fun and boisterous countdown to the big meal.
The committed performances by the cast of talented actors are what elevates Almost Christmas above complaints about its familiarity and melodrama.
Almost Christmas goes light enough on the cliché and gives the stacked cast - which also includes J.B. Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Omar Epps and Romany Malco - enough decent material that the film remains relatively lively.
It's as predictable as your aunt's holiday stuffing, but the cast finds some places to open up the material.
On a few, all-too-rare occasions, comedic sparks fly.
Audience Reviews for Almost Christmas
Almost Christmas has notable flaws in terms of writing and having an imbalance in character use but I couldn't say I didn't enjoy the film. Generations of families are properly presented remaking it a movie it is an enjoyable experience for the family no matter how old or young. For those wondering if Almost Christmas is a hit or a miss, I say the movie hits enough to make it a good Christmas film, not one of the best but a good time regardless.
2 hours together? Oh joy, how fun will this be? Not any that's for sure. It does try, but at its best, it serves Christmas treats not as special they were supposed to be.
