Weaknesses: Mel Gibson (Kurt Mayron) seemed to be one of the film's selling points, yet he didn't add much. A lot of what he did lacked for laughs. He and Lithgow both played characters who felt more like clichés than real people. In fact, clichés are all over this movie. It's as if they saw Christmas family films and tried to mimic them without doing anything funny or original. The singing scene near the end feels way over the top and it doesn't work. Instead of feeling heartwarming, it comes across as cheesy in an unfunny way. It's almost painful.
Overall: There are more than a few laughs to help this be completely terrible. It's filled with familiar tropes, cringeworthy moments, and the talented cast suffers from a lazy script.
