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

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

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

It borrows storylines from many different films, and not just the holiday ones.

While there may well be nothing like the holidays, there's a lot that is dully familiar about the movie of the same name.

The ensemble cast boasts some of the finest actors in the business. They do their best to breathe life into the stereotypes, but they simply don't have enough to work with.

'God is punishing me,' says the matriarch. Not just you.

The Rodriguezes are dealing with divorce, a war injury, cancer and even Christmas, but these setbacks are all played for jokes.

Sadly, nobody has much to do.
