Movie Info

Big Earl, the owner of a Christmas tree lot in Compton, and a man with a big heart and a big vision, demands success from everyone around him. All kinds of trouble erupts the week before Christmas when his son, Derrick, part-time music producer and part-time Christmas tree lot employee, crosses the line to prove to Big Earl that he is a success. The colorful characters that populate the tree lot cause additional complications for Derrick as he tries to solve his problems secretly. Things spiral out of Derrick's control, jeopardizing the survival of the lot, and more importantly, his relationship with his father. What Derrick needs is a miracle; a Christmas miracle in Compton.

Forget Christmas, this risible early holiday release won't make it until Thanksgiving.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

The actors are personable, but they're burdened with a script full of stereotypical characters and offensive jokes.

New York Post
Top Critic

With a first-rate cast led by Keith David and Sheryl Lee Ralph, generously funny dialogue and a supporting cast capable of crisp comic timing, writer-director David Raynr's feature is warm and likable enough to jumpstart the holiday movie season.

Audience Reviews for Christmas In Compton

A cheap "Friday" knock-off. Fourty-five minutes in and I still had no idea where this movie was headed.
