I swell with pride at this film as it's a respectable and thoroughly entertaining exploration of the bonds of a tightly knit large Puerto Rican family...

just like the gifts one gets every year, Nothing Like the Holidays is a hit-and-miss entertainment experience.

De Villa and the ensemble cast provide a comfortable, lived-in feeling -- like your own family, only louder.

Nothing Like the Holidays most certainly is. It's about as welcome as a cup of canned eggnog and a slice of 3-year-old Claxton fruitcake -- and just as indigestible.

The movie is bland. Which is a crying shame when the source material has so much flavor.

Watching Leguizamo dance to the 'The Show' and compete in a 'who's got the bigger chainsaw/penis' contest was certainly funnier than Vince Vaughn in a short skirt or Reese Witherspoon trying to figure out how a breast pump works.

A film that we've seen dozens of times before.

The actors are all very good and seem to be enjoying themselves, but it doesn't disguise the fact that it's just pretty ordinary.

Harmless, predictable, contrived -- if those are the best things you can say about a movie I think you should definitely skip it.

It's kind of like going home.

A sentimental, warm-hearted and tell-all dysfunctional Puerto Rican family holiday pic.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

It's a warm, friendly movie, and infinitely more human than, say, Four Christmases. It deserves credit for that.
