Surviving Christmas - Holiday Cheer
It's always nice to be able to go catch a flick
before Christmas that will get you into the holiday spirit
. Unfortunately, Surviving Christmas is not this year's feel-good movie
. Its supposed to be the funny, light-hearted tale of a really annoying guy who rents this family
for Christmas so he can get back that warm fuzzy feeling that being with your family
brings. Only problem is, this movie might have you hating Christmas
by the end of it, not put you in the mood for singing Christmas carols.
Surviving Christmas - Scroogy Scenes
There are a ton of funny actors in this movie, but they don't have a chance
to save it. While Ben Affleck might have a few funny lines
, for the most part he is so annoying, you may want to walk out of the theater
half-way through the film.
Survivng Christmas - DVD Features
Since this flick was only released a few short months ago in the theaters, it doesn't have any cool features
just yet. But, having the movie released on DVD
just before Christmas does give you the opportunity to watch it at home
with the fam this holiday season.
Surviving Christmas - Bottom Line
No matter how cute you may think Ben Affleck
or Christina Applegate is, you're better off renting one of their older flicks
than checking out Surviving Christmas! Save your cash
and wait for Spongebob or Lemony Snicket
to come out.
