Noel

Critics Consensus

Noel strains for holiday uplift, but -- despite the involvement of an outstanding ensemble cast -- settles for treacly sentiment instead.

Audience Reviews for Noel

  • Dec 22, 2016
    Noel is a compelling holiday drama with a touching message about love, family, and forgiveness. The story follows several New Yorkers on Christmas Eve as they cross paths and struggle to come to terms with their personal struggles. Starring Susan Sarandon, Penélope Cruz, Paul Walker, Alan Arkin, and Robin Williams, the film features an impressive cast that delivers some strong performances. And the writers do a fairly good job at balancing the different character stories. Still, it gets a little cliché at times and a bit contrived. Yet despite its flaws, Noel is a heartwarming film about the redemptive nature of Christmas.

    This was ok. Nothing new or memorable. It was cute.

    A great Christmas Movie, One for adult as younger children just wouldn't understand. It shows the lives of 5 different people and how in this story they mingle together to form an outstanding story with a tear jerker ending. Rose was great along with the rough and rowdy cop. 5 stars
