      Trina W This movie was a surprisingly worthwhile one that made my husband and I think. The movie concept had a deeper meaning for sure—that of reconciling different opinions or beliefs—of choosing unity instead of division….and all in the fun medium of Santa. It was one that we wholeheartedly agree with. For the sake of families looking for a fun film for those family members that believe—this film directly challenges all those beliefs…and then it directly challenges all the nay sayers right back. It's kind of the premise. Some choose to believe, and some choose not to. It's a cute story and cute way of making us all think introspectively about our beliefs or opinions, and how we treat others that have different beliefs or opinions than ours. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/30/23 Full Review Keira D While obviously not a great film, it had my family and I laughing hysterically and rewatching scenes over and over again because of how ridiculous they were. "I AM A MAN!" was our favorite line that was probably not meant to be funny, but we were laughing so hard that we had tears in our eyes. We replayed that scene probably ten times or more. So many parts of this movie are just so silly and cringey that you can't help laughing at the absurdity of it. On the upside, it does make you think about how illogical a lot of beliefs are from the outside (i.e. believing in Santa is like believing in God), which was an interesting point. Also, the cringe factor makes this a fun movie to laugh at and comment on throughout the whole thing. One big thing we couldn't get over was how Tom was setting off our gaydar, especially because of how little chemistry he and the female lead had, only to discover that they are married in real life. We were floored! And then we laughed some more! Overall, we had fun watching it last year and rewatching it this year. If you don't take this movie seriously and can laugh at it/ with it and appreciate its absurdity, then this movie is for you. Also, you can't be creeped out by eyes. Trust me on that one. This movie has lots of wide-eyed staring that can be uncomfortable. But again, that just adds to the funny weirdness, if you're the kind of person who enjoys that kind of thing, which I am! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review Andrew C I can confirm without reservation or equivocation that this is comprehensively the worst film I have ever seen. The lead actor and purported leading love interest is a walking ick. The writing and acting is completely horrendous, to the point where you can't tell if the lead is meant to be in love with his buddy, or the single mother he somehow started dating. One of those films that will keep you laughing, for all the wrong reasons. Enjoy watching this to roast this complete blunder with your friends !!! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/25/23 Full Review Sarah M This was so terrible that I made a Rotten Tomatoes account so that I could give it a 1 and safe some poor soul an hour and a half of their life. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/14/23 Full Review inta k your typical, cheesy xmas movie Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/07/23 Full Review Kristy M I think all the bad reviews are from folks taking this way too seriously. If I want to watch a 5 star incredible film, obviously this is not it. If I want to zone out and watch a predictable, silly Christmas movie, this is it. It's a totally fine movie. I was entertained. The actress does have weird facial expressions but whatever, not enough to impact me. Bottom line — if youre the kind of person that's into low-drama, predictable, cheesy rom coms, you'll probably like this movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jennifer Green Common Sense Media On one side is the man who would rather be wrong having faith in something magical, and on the other, the woman who thinks Santa is a lie and has come to represent base consumption. It's almost enough to make you believe, or at least want to. Rated: 3/5 Dec 21, 2022 Full Review Brett White Decider There are times when the movie hits The Room level of disorienting, where the movie is telling you one thing but unintentionally (?) showing you something completely different. Dec 15, 2022 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Fails to warm the heart, wrap us in romance, salve us with sentiment or tickle the funny bone. Like too many of these mass production holiday pictures, it’s just filler Rated: 1/4 Dec 14, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
