      Jeff M Yet another cookie-cutter Christmas concoction going through the same tired routine as a trillion other holiday movies you're likely to see this or any other season. It's beginning to get increasingly difficult to review films like this - part of me just wants to copy and paste from earlier reviews and change a few names. But this movie feels particularly DOA - even the actors seem tired and portray their characters rather somnambulantly. Piven, in particular, acts as though her were trying to channel the spirit of Steve Carell, but he doesn't possess the humor or the pathos of Carell's best performances. And Richardson is absolutely wasted in such a throwaway role that one can't help but wonder why in the world she agreed to appear. Perhaps the filmmakers have dirt on her?!?! The chemistry between the cast is non-existent, almost shockingly so. Piven and Barrett are supposed to be father and daughter, but you'd think they were third cousins twice removed who just met each other three days ago. Having unexpectedly lost my mother shortly before Christmas a few years ago, this is going to inevitably have a scene or two that hits me in the gut. But that's due to human nature and not any accomplishment by the filmmakers. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Michael P Not the best movie you'll ever see but it was intertaining. Had some great lines in it that kept me laughing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a nice Christmas story, certainly not a joyous or uplifting story since it deals with losing loved ones and how we miss them around the holidays. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member It's not one of those banal Hallmark Christmas movies. It's not a family friendly puppet movie. It's a Christmas film for adults, which there aren't enough of. It is a family drama but not for children, they won't get it. It's just a fine holiday film for the season. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a good story with both comedic moments and emotional ones. Good acting. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/27/21 Full Review Audience Member Great acting and one of the best written movies about overcoming grief and the trials people go through. Don't watch unless you want to see how great people are in a non-upbeat happy way. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Roger Moore Movie Nation Three screenwriters and a director with a record unblemished by "success" can't make this "Date" come off. In a movie with plenty of "You Americans" jokes, it's the Yank who holds his own and the Limeys who let down the side. Rated: 1.5/4 Nov 21, 2021 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix [The movie] is not as sappy and predictable as it first appears to be, but there are still some blatant formulaic, tearjerking moments in this family dramedy that's elevated by a memorable performance by Olivia-Mai Barrett. Dec 21, 2020 Full Review Sandie Angulo Chen Common Sense Media Sweet but forgettable holiday drama has drinking, language. Rated: 2/5 Nov 13, 2020 Full Review Jeffrey Lyles Lyles' Movie Files Decked out like a traditional feel good romantic comedy, but underneath the wrapping it's a heartfelt and authentic look at the grieving process. Rated: 8/10 Nov 6, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
