      Murphy1101 M Will not be adding this one to our annual Christmas list. The kids were begging us to turn it off. Don't waste your time on this one. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review Kaiden B would rather watch grass grow Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review Morgan M Unfortunately this movie was not worth the 81 minutes spent watching it. While the initial premise was lightly based in reality, what ensued was absurdity after absurdity. The characters had absolutely no depth, and we experienced no background to understand their shallowness. Take a hard pass on this and rewatch Elf. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/25/23 Full Review Eric F The cringey, cliche-ridden dialogue, robotic acting, and a manipulative plot twist did not put me in the Christmas spirit. It was nice to see these actors get a paycheck, but so sad to see how far Jason Biggs and Heather Graham have fallen to be in this mean-spirited garbage. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/24/23 Full Review Kristina M I should probably give it 1 star. The acting was terrible. The script and singing were even worse. The only semi good thing about the movie was Jason Biggs. I can handle cheesy movies. I like rom coms and my favorite Christmas movie is Love Actually. This movie was just cringy. Don't waste your time. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Worst. Christmas.Ever. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News More of a holiday concept than legit film, Netflix’s flimsy and phony offering flounders around and strands Heather Graham and pop singer/actor Brandy Norwood, not to mention Jason Biggs and Matt Cedeno, in the cinematic equivalent of a lump of coal. Rated: 1.5/4 Nov 27, 2023 Full Review Courtney Howard Variety Its absurdist lunacy acts as a Trojan Horse containing genuinely meaningful sentiments on forgiveness, happiness and bittersweet sorrows — universalities people tend to reflect on as their year comes to a close. Nov 16, 2023 Full Review Claire Shaffer New York Times “Best. Christmas. Ever!” resembles a television holiday special more than a feature film, and its plot follows the predictable Christmastime themes of love, acceptance, and being thankful for what you’ve got. Nov 16, 2023 Full Review Alison Gillmor Winnipeg Free Press What follows is standard Christmas-movie fare: a town-square nativity pageant, a couple of precocious kids and some eggnog-sweet lessons about love and friendship, all marred by an uncomfortable and abrupt tonal shift. Dec 20, 2023 Full Review Jeanine T. Abraham VisAbleBlackwoman (Medium) Watch Best. Christmas. Ever! if you want to waste a bit of your precious life. Rated: 1 Dec 13, 2023 Full Review Maddy Casale Decider For all of its joys, the holiday season can be a time of comparison, envy, and heartache, and Best. Christmas. Ever! portrays that in a really thought-provoking and realistic way as it reminds us that no life or person is as perfect as it may seem. Nov 29, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
