However, having all of them under one roof leads to a number of personal confrontations as secrets are revealed and marriages are tested. Omar Epps, J.B. Smoove, Nicole Ari Parker, John Michael Higgins, Keri Hilson, and DC Young Fly co-star. Written and directed by David E. Talbert (Baggage Claim).~Jack Rodgers
I saw this movie a few years ago. There is a shortage of black Christmas movies on the market. I rank this movie with This Christmas and purchased it to watch on Christmas morning every year along with This Christmas. The actors and actresses in this movie played their rolls perfectly. I love this movie.
I wasn't sure what to expect buying this film never heard of it at all. Never even saw a trailer. But OMG when I watched it I couldn't stop laughing. I'm a sucker for always giving in and buying various Christmas as well rather it be live action or animated. This one surprised me. It got my attention from the beginning to end. Great casting. Amazing pacing and great acting. I would actually add this to my yearly Christmas movies that's how much I enjoyed it. I know a lot of people make Christmas movies but this one I feel like a lot of families can relate to with all the family feuds. I liked how they made the cast feel like it was an actual real family as well. A+ Christmas film. Filled with family, drama, Christmas Spirit and love.
I would recommend this to a friend
