Seemingly as cozy as The Gift of the Magi yet in reality more stinging than Revolutionary Road

Produced for a paltry $325,000, it once again gives the lie to the arbitrary Hollywood assumption that a film's quality is in direct proportion to its cost.

Tragically underseen, this Preston Sturges comedy is all of 68 minutes long (including the credits) and is a freakin' laugh riot from start to finish.
| Original Score: 4.5/5

As a creator of rich and human comedy Mr. Sturges is closing fast on the heels of Frank Capra.

Sprightly Sturges comedy that while not being one of his celebrated films is still a little gem.

Preston Sturges's second feature as writer-director (1940, 66 min.) is in many ways the most underrated of his movies -- a riotous comedy-satire about capitalism that bites so deep it hurts.

A mildly diverting programmer, Christmas in July lacks both the overall spontaneity and entertainment impress of Sturges' first picture.
