      r 9 It's not good, fact. It is kinda likeable though. I didn't really enjoy 'A Very Nutty Christmas' but it has its heart in the right place and I came away from viewing it feeling alright about it. Melissa Joan Hart and Barry Watson, despite iffy chemistry, are probably the main reasons for that, Watson in particular. The supports are OK too. The film does drag in patches and the whole vibe of it feels too clean and too acted out, which is a weird thing to say, granted, but it's just not a film that comes across as natural - every inch of it feels overtly constructed. Not one I'd personally recommend, though you could do worse. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member So blandly Connecticut, it should be titled A Very Cracker Christmas. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A Nutty Christmas might look like any cookie-cutter Lifetime movie. It has the formula, a romance movie aimed at a female audience (despite having a misogynistic message), it has the headache-inducing visuals where every room is covered in red and green vomit, wooden actors, an aimless plot, and it has a heterosexual couple as the leads. The only two differences between A Nutty Christmas and everything else made by Lifetime is 1) it's loosely based on the Nutcracker and 2) this movie is A B S O L U T E L Y I N S A N E . This movie is awful, with a production just as bad as every Lifetime movie. But God, I love every unintentionally comedic moment in this trash fire. This is one of the best so-bad-it's-good movies of all time and I'm a bit sad that it's already forgotten. The decisions taken during this film are so bizarre, so unadulteratedly dumb, that they come around and make it ironically hilarious. It's a Lifetime movie that goes off the rails the moment the Nutcracker appears and it never gets back up. This movie deserves being remembered alongside The Room and Trolls 2. I recommend watching this train wreck with a friend. I give it a nutship/10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
