Critic reviews for Last Christmas
We didn't think it was possible, but we cried harder than we've ever cried before.
I hope you enjoyed that heartwarming tale, because the present-day Pearson holiday saga is less Miracle on 34th Street, more the George's-life-is-crap-and-we're-not-even-to-the-midpoint-yet part of It's a Wonderful Life.
Life continually serves the Pearson's lemons. They've made themselves a batch of lemonade, but no one said it had to taste great.
'Tis the season of mortifyingly tacky and overly dramatic holiday episodes, and while "Last Christmas" definitely lays on the drama, it does so in a rather composed manner.
The parts are greater than the sum. Don't get me wrong, I look forward to my weekly visits with the Pearson clan - we laugh! We cry! We talk of hats! - but I'm still waiting to fall head over heels in love.
