Ho, ho, ho? No, not really.

It fails to provide the sorts of human inter-connections and deep revelations for which director Mitch Davis seems to be striving.

Who knew a movie seemingly meant to spread holiday cheer could be so off-putting in an almost sadistic way?

A Christmas comedy that needs more holiday cheer.

March 31, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

There's simply too much going in such a short running time...

November 10, 2016 | Rating: 12/20 | Full Review…

"Christmas Eve" doesn't have much ambition. Or laughs. Or sincerity.

Audience Reviews for Christmas Eve

Not wanting to expect much from this I was pleasantly surprised. Whilst covering nothing special, it covers four different groups, all related and all trapped in separate lifts on Christmas Eve and what happens in times of peril. Heartwarming at times, predictable but that is what makes Christmas movies so special.
