Critic Reviews for Noel
One of those unpleasant fiascoes meant to lodge a lump in the throat at Christmas, but it only ends up making you want to bludgeon the elves with their own toy-shop hammers.
The nut-ball factor is just too high for these characters.
The kind of sappy, sadness-turns- to-gladness holiday movie that shows up on cable TV this time of year.
Palminteri draws some very good performances from his cast -- only to pile on a lot of shameless heart-tugging on top of a contrived script about five New Yorkers facing Christmas Eve alone.
The mawkishness meter is turned up full blast by the time Williams, wearing the hangdog expression he saves for maudlin dramas, shows up out of nowhere as a former priest to save an unhappy Sarandon from jumping into the East River.
Audience Reviews for Noel
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.
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
