Mom and Dad married seven years before, but the blended family has never gotten together in the same house at the same time. They just don’t get along. But this year they all come home for Christmas to set off World War III. One of the girls shows up with a new boyfriend who happens to be the ex of her sister. Then Mom announces that the family is to appear on a “Family Christmas” segment on her TV show which everyone screws up royally. Finally, one of the family members has a deep dark secret that threatens to blow the lid off the whole holiday. This is a Christmas family comedy about a big family who doesn’t like each other very much.

This film is on TV this Christmas once again. It’s a decent family drama centered around the holidays. They all do a pretty decent job of being hysterically funny one moment and deadly serious the next. It has a lot of heart and is a lot of fun at the same time. Everyone has to learn how to compromise to fit into this dysfunctional family, and it’s fun to watch them figure it all out. One of the best lines, when Mom says to her son, “You need to get some counseling” and he responds, “So do you”. They all need all the help they can get. This is a simple film, not too intense, and nice change of pace for a littler known film for the holidays. I enjoyed it.
