    Great holiday movie centered around the complex dynamics of family. They are all mourning the matriarch and this is the first Christmas they will spend together after her death. Mo'Nique's character of Aunt May provides the perfect comic relief and it is a great movie to watch with your own family. The con that I would offer is that there is some profanity used in the movie that would be off-putting for some.

    I love holiday movies, so I was very eager to watch this film. The film was quite entertaining but appeared to be very familiar with the ideas that previous holiday movies have delivered. Although I could predict various outcomes and dialogue within the movie, I was still drawn to the storyline, as nothing warms the spirit like a holiday film that encourages famiy unity, positive self-reflection, and individual growth.

    Yes, it is a cliche Christmas film however, it really is a good film. The film is a little slow at the beginning but it does get going. It's a bringing the family together after Mom dies for one last celebration before he sells the family home. 5 days is together, let the bonding begin! One last item, this film has a great cast and great chemistry!

    This was such a good flick. Laughter throughout! My daughter and I was so surprised to see Monique perform so well. Usually it's nothing but vulgarity and no real message. She stepped up in this role. Danny Glover and Omar Epps shine all the time. Gabriell Union is just herself on and off the screen... The remaining cast members gave it there all too. We recommended for all adults.

    The death of the family matriarch has the entire family feeling blue for the holidays. With bitter rivalries, jealousy, and grieving for all this is a recipe for a hilarous nightmare of a family gathering. Watch as the family needs to find their own ways of coping with the loss as they try to come together as a family.

    This is a typical dysfunctional family gets together and works through their issues. This one happens around the Christmas family gathering. Danny Glover is one of my favorite actors and he delivers in this movie. It was a lot of fun and should be fine for the whole family.

    This is one funny flick. It has Adult content that may not be great for children, It has a good message that families should not take tomorrow for granted; this movie is a must see if you have people in your life that don't always show love. It will teach them to respect life and love all.
