  • As a film trying to please everyone as a truthful portrayal of queer love for the LGBTQ+ community without being too threatening for the traditional rom-com audience, Happiest Season hits the mark.

  • It's funny, it's charming, it's warm, and it's got a bunch of really good performances.

  • Let's call it progress that "Happiest Season" suggests gay people are as entitled to mawkish, contrived holiday movies as straight people are.

  • "Happiest Season" relies on set-ups and revelations that don't feel real, making this holiday present a mixed bag. Ho, ho, hum.

  • There's nothing wrong with easy-viewing comfort cinema - but there's a difference between lazily entertaining your audience and insulting their intelligence.

    November 26, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The average holiday-themed romantic comedy is such a synthetic box of delights... "Happiest Season," a new comedy directed by Clea DuVall, is a clever, affecting, endearingly imperfect example.
