      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Relying on flat humor and a preposterous plot, Deck the Halls is an unnecessarily mean-spirited holiday movie that does little to put viewers in a holiday mood. Read critic reviews

      Audience Reviews for Deck the Halls

      • Jan 08, 2020

        Not a film with true purpose or clear comedy intent. The filmmaker expects the set pieces and actors to generate all the humour, or laugh out loud moments. This is a clumsy film designed for the lowest common denominator. Weird and quite mean spirited comedy film, never comes together. The cast is good, but there's no real storyline here and the filmmaker in charge was definitely not the correct choice for the material. Unfunny and definitely one to avoid around the festive season. I could actually see this film triggering violence. It's weird structure and mean storyline is tiresome and would frustrate any audience member. 26/12/2019

        Deck the Halls has a lot going for it, but fails to deliver the heartwarming Christmas comedy that it promises. Both Danny DeVito and Matthew Broderick are great comedic actors, but they have no chemistry in this film. Broderick's performance is especially poor, giving a halfhearted effort at best. And, the plot opts to go for cheap laughs and cliches instead of giving any real insight on the modern Christmas of the new millennium. There are a few heartwarming moments, but they're disconnected from the rest of the film. Despite a fine cast and some fun moments, Deck the Halls is an altogether disappointing film.

        Deck the Halls is a very sweet but edgy christmas film thats kept alive by its wonderful cast and witty humour. It's not overly bad as everyone says it is.
