Making one epic party: 20 minutes of on-set shenanigans
Not exactly for families, but cherishable for some

I know this is not exactly a family holiday type movie by any means. In fact, its just raunchy at times. For some reason, I watch it. Not sure I will keep this, but I still watch it every year. Maybe the few moments in the movie about friendship is what keeps it for me.
"The Night Before" could be a cousin to "A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas," but not to "A Christmas Story," or "It's a Wonderful Life." This will not be a classic, holiday tradition movie, but that doesn't make it bad.
If you want to laugh and Seth Rogen movies make you laugh, you'll laugh. If you don't like his movies and brand of humor, avoid this movie.
Good movie with a quality blu-ray is what this is. The AV isn't reference material, but it still is pleasing and more than acceptable. The extras are light and fun. You won't remember them but they're cool.
Ho ho ho! Merry night before!
