Funny and one to watch with the whole family
Peak Tim Allen. If you ever found him funny, this film is a good one to pop at Christmas. It’s definitely dumb, but the kind of dumb I like.
Good, fun Christmas movie for the family.
Funny Christmas movie. A good watch when there’s nothing else on. Some good laughs throughout
Is it a dumb movie? Yes, but there’s still some buried Christmas charm that makes it likable. Possibly just so silly that it’s good.
It’s a Christmas movie with everything you expect from a Christmas movie.
I’m a sucker for cheesy, family, Christmas movies... so I loved it!
It's not outstanding, but it suits the Christmas season well.
I actually like the comedy behind it. A Christmas movie I can go back to.
