      67% Tomatometer 6 Reviews Four lifelong friends, Greyson, Sloane, Henry and Callie, convene for their last college winter break before entering the dreaded "real world". But when Sloane unexpectedly reveals that her family is moving after the holiday, the pressure for a final, perfect Christmas together snowballs into a collision of looming feelings and past regrets. Greyson grapples with whether he should snuff out the torch he's carried for Sloane since grade school, or let it burn brighter than ever. Henry, who's picked up a "soul crushing" seasonal gig at the local carousel and its adjacent museum, suggests an overnight lock-in before both venues succumb to the threat of a looming shutdown; Callie, a starry-eyed thespian in training, enlists his help in going viral on TikTok, drudging up uncertainty about their futures, and whether or not chasing the spotlight is always worth it. And while Sloane reflects with her family on memories of loss and love, she realizes that opening your heart--and all the risks that come with it--is a far more meaningful gift than anything under the tree.

      Amanda Mazzillo Film Inquiry At times, the film does not fully utilize its characters, but the overarching experience is one of joy and Christmas cheer. Nov 13, 2021 Full Review Carey-Ann Pawsey Orca Sound There is a lot of potential here. Unfortunately, it is unfulfilled potential. Rated: 2/5 Nov 7, 2021 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com ...will provide the fix of heart-warming Christmas romance everyone seems to crave at this time of year.... Rated: 3/5 Oct 22, 2021 Full Review Bobby LePire Film Threat Christmas On The Carousel is not the most original story out there. But the movie sports realistic characters in emotionally honest situations while still serving the cozy-sweet demands of the family/romance holiday genre. Rated: 8.5/10 Oct 20, 2021 Full Review Natasha Alvar Cultured Vultures I am not adverse to a melancholic Christmas movie, but the acting and romantic spaces need to be credible too, and Christmas on the Carousel just doesn't deliver on those fronts. Rated: 5/10 Oct 20, 2021 Full Review Nathaniel Muir AIPT The characters work great as a group and the unique tone is refreshing, but the short run time leads to the emotional impact not getting across as well as it should.
