Santa discontinued that whole coal-in-the-stocking thing a while back. Now, he brings movies like this one when you're bad.
November 12, 2004
Except for die-hard students of extremely bad movies, Noel isn't worth seeing.
November 12, 2004
Despite the impressive cast, acting quality isn't especially high.
November 12, 2004
I can be sentimental under the right circumstances, but the movie is such a calculating tearjerker that it played like a challenge to me.
November 12, 2004
Like way too many holiday films, it is shameless in its desperate grab at the heartstrings. What it latches onto firmly instead is the gag reflex, making you long for a dose of Maalox or at least another viewing of Bad Santa.
November 12, 2004
Desperate for warm and fuzzy holiday feelings, Noel is depressing and bland.
November 12, 2004
[A] swirl of contrived Christmas Eve 'magic' that's forced and mostly phony and never quite hits the right notes...
November 11, 2004
Sentimental and sappy enough to keep a maple syrup factory busy all year long, but isn't that the point of Christmas movies anyway?
November 11, 2004
Utterly devoid of genuine emotion or warmth, Noel, which marks the directorial debut of actor Chazz Palminteri, is too sappy for words.
November 11, 2004
Though clearly meant as a heartwarmer in the long-standing holiday tradition, Chazz Palminteri's film comes off as strange and sour.
