Surviving Christmas Reviews

    This movie was hilarious. Find it difficult to trust these ratings. Glad I watched on word of mouth & not Tomato results.

    Considering that Christmas movies are rarely award quality I really enjoyed Surviving Christmas. Afffleck is typically a great actor and his acting in this movie is a little over the top but I still enjoyed it. I watched it with my COVID bubble and we all had a few hardy laughs. The plot is not one that makes you say "yeah, that could happen" but you don't expect reality in a Christmas movie.

    I came twice when i watched this. What the hell is there not to love about this Eff you in the face movie about Christmas and families?! Catherine O'Hara? Yes Bébé! Ben Affleck? I do like them apples! Christina Applegate?!!! Just the sweetest thing!! You ever watch an actor in a movie and think to yourself, "does this person even know they are in a movie?!" Because clearly thats just who they are as a person! I feel like no one told Ben Affleck they were filming him, thats just where he was at in life. Christina Applegate as the hot girl who is also an asshole? My God the range on that one! You throw in a cheapskate Papa and a master-bating little brother and you got yourself a Christmas! If i knew that with a little money you could rent yourself a Dad, i would probably be a lot more successful in life! If ‘Indecent Proposal' and ‘Its a Wonderful Life' had a baby, it would be this movie. So sick back, kick your feet up, and give it a go!

    Honestly I must be weird but I thought this movie was funny as hell. The movie theatre back in 2004 was about 10% full when I saw it opening weekend but everyone laughed and literally at the end the 8 of us that were in the theatre gave it a standing ovation. It is not nearly as bad as it is made out to be . Give it a chance

    I loved this movie. It was such a fresh take on what it means to be endearingly mental. The jokes were hilarious and the main female characters (o'hara and applegate) were so interesting, strong and cool. James Gandolfini was hilarious. Ben Affleck played the perfect douchebag. I laughed the whole way through! This has become a new holiday favorite.

    the real struggle isn't surviving christmas, but surviving this film. Ben Affleck delivers a cringeworthy performance, and acts like an entitled man child the entire runtime of this film. and the members of the family he is spending christmas with don't make it any more enjoyable. the basic plot of the movie is that Ben Affleck can't find anyone to spend christmas with, so he goes back to his childhood home to try and regain all the "christmas cheer". so he pays the family currently living in the house $250,000 if they let him stay for christmas. ignoring the numerous issues this plot has, it still manages to be a horrible movie for one reason: cringe humour. this movie is packed with it. there is an actual scene where a teenage boy looks at porn of his mom and it is played off as a joke. DISGUSTING.
