Synopsis


Surviving Christmas
Directed by Mike Mitchell, Surviving Christmas finds Drew Latham (Ben Affleck) uneager to spend another lonely Christmas in his own home. Longing for holidays past, Drew travels to his childhood home intending to relive the experience of a family Christmas -- unfortunately, his family no longer lives there. This represents only a small snafu to Drew, who offers the Valco patriarch and his wife (Sopranos star James Gandolfini and Catherine O'Hara) a huge amount of money if they consent to pretend they are his parents and that he is a cherished member of the family. This entails participating in Latham family traditions, such as Christmas tree selection and crowded holiday shopping excursions. Though the Valcos reluctantly go along with Drew's requests, Alicia, their eldest daughter, arrives at home and refuses to comply with her "brother's" wishes. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

    This film was roasted by the critics and a good portion of the public however I always found a quaint charm. When a working class family gets invaded by a quirky millionaire all types of aggravation and fun ensue. The plot and dialogue is hokey but the talented cast really pulls this off for me.

    As far as xmas movies goes this is in the top tier. Most people have not seen this because they don't like ben afflec, however everything you probably hate about him is why he is so amazingly funny in this.

    It was funny and kept you interested. The plot moved around, with the grandpa of a different color being added to the family, along with the idea of a person being pushed on them for the holiday. From a divorcing couple, to the rich almost inlaws, it's halarious.

    There are several movies that are iconic for Christmas time, and this one will never be one. It is still a really good one to take out at Christmas time. I suggest you give it a try.
